Georgia Football Preseason: 7 Walk-Ons Given Scholarships

The Georgia Bulldogs have awarded scholarships to seven walk-on players, reports The Telegraph's Seth Emerson:

Five players previously not on scholarship were upgraded on Saturday: redshirt freshman fullback Merritt Hall, junior defensive back Luis Capella, junior receiver Rhett McGowan, sophomore safety Connor Norman and sophomore linebacker Kosta Vavlas.

In addition, junior tailback Brandon Harton and junior cornerback Blake Sailors, who were awarded scholarships before last season, had theirs renewed.

Hall is currently listed as the Bulldogs' first-team fullback, and Norman could see a considerable amount of playing time with Bacarri Rambo facing a suspension.

With the new additions, Georgia has 76 players on scholarship, according to Emerson.
