Georgia was still missing a key offensive starter in Wednesday’s practice, but it regained the services of a promising freshman wide receiver.

 

Jeremiah Holloman, an early enrollee from Newton who made a good first impression this spring, practiced for the first time since last week after working on the side the last few practices due to a hamstring injury.

He showed no signs of being slowed down when he slid past cornerback Tyrique McGhee in a one-on- one drill.

Starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn remained out for the third straight day. Coach Kirby Smart said Wynn has “an illness.”

—Some other observations from Georgia’s practice in the indoor facility on a wet day:

—Georgia adjusted the media’s two open periods a bit, but still showed some wildcat looks during the time reporters were watching. Whether they want opposing teams to have something ato think bout or not, you can decide.

Athletic Mecole Hardman, who played quarterback in high school and was moved to offense this spring, took direct snaps as did Sony Michel. Michel lined up in a look that included running backs D’Andre Swift and Elijah Holyfield. Hardman was with running backs Nick Chubb and Brian Herrien.

—Defensive lineman Michail Carter continues to be present with his position group but isn’t practicing. Wynn was not seen at all at practice.

—Georgia’s top three quarterbacks were on the money on throws to the sideline at one point in a drill. Jacob Eason hit Hardman, Jake Fromm connected with Ahkil Crumpton and Brice Ramsey hooked up with walk-on Willie Erdman.
