Josh Harvey-Clemons named special teams captain for game against Kentucky.

Although the game is still 10 days away, Georgia has named its captains for its SEC battle against Kentucky. Included in the group is Josh Harvey-Clemons, who is the captain of the special teams.

Although it is rare for a true freshman to be a captain, head coach Mark Richt believed he deserved it, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"It’s rare that a true freshman becomes a captain, but the staff and I felt he did the best," Richt said. "Every special team he was on, he excelled and had a winning grade. All of the coaches were saying how excellent he played. It is really hard to become a captain as a freshman, especially true freshman, but he earned this and I’m proud of him."

Coming into the season, Rivals.com rated Harvey-Clemons the top recruit from Georgia.

The other captains for the game include guard Chris Burnette, and defenders John Jenkins and Abry Jones.
