UGA true freshman safety has accepted his special teams role

Georgia Bulldogs true freshman safety Josh Harvey-Clemons is adjusting to a role on special team's, something the young safety wasn't prepared to do when first arriving to the team, writes Yousef Baig of the Athens Banner-Herald. Harvey-Clemons took some humbling to accept the fact he wasn't going to be an instant playmaker on defense, but accepts the role now:

"I like it now. At first I was like, ‘Man, I don't want to play on special teams. I want to be on defense. But coach (Mark Richt) really stresses how important special teams are. (I enjoy) going out there and being with the fellas. It's good to actually get a chance to be out there on something."

Harvey-Clemons is used to adjusting, though. He has moved from his recruited outside linebacker to safety because of his size (6-foot-5, 207 pounds), something he had no problem doing since he played in the secondary in high school:

"It wasn't really that big of a deal. I already knew I was going to have to play another position because I wasn't at the right weight to be a linebacker."
