Linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days will make his first start against the Virginia Tech Hokies on Sept. 3. The redshirt freshman will be taking the place of linebacker Daniel Drummond, who is suspended for the first one-and-a-half games. Hunt-Days spoke with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the opportunity.
It's a great opportunity, but ultimately, it's just a team effort. That's my thoughts.
Hunt-Days has six practices to prepare for his first start. He will be the first Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets freshman to start since guard Will Jackson in 2010. The last defensive player to start as a freshman was linebacker Kyle Jackson in 2008.
The game between Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech will kick off at 8 p.m. on Labor Day on ESPN.
