Georgia Tech Football: Anthony Autry developing nicely for Yellow Jackets

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The freshman has been the most played in the 2012 signing class this season, and had a catch for 53 yards against Clemson.

Georgia Tech wide receiver Anthony Autry became only the second true freshman to earn a start in 2012, and had one catch for 53 yards in the Yellow Jackets' loss to Clemson on Saturday. The catch was only one of five completions to wide receivers on the day, but there were no drops. Wide receivers coach Buzz Preston told the AJC:

"There’s still a lot more room for improvement, but he did pretty good."

Autry could earn the starting nod again at the end of this week's practice. Of equal measure to receptions and yardage for Tech's wideouts is their blocking, which is a crucial element of the triple option. Running backs Orwin Smith and Robbie Godhigh finished with 178 yards on 11 carries Saturday.

Despite its defensive woes, Georgia Tech is still third in the country in rushing (331 yards per game) and tops in the ACC.
