UGA Football Preseason: True Freshman John Theus Could Be Named Starter

Georgia freshman John Theus has been impressive during preseason practices thus far and if he keeps it up, he could go down in history according to Dog Bytes Online:

Georgia has yet to name him a starter, but if the 2012 signee does indeed start Sept. 1 against Buffalo, he'll be just the third true freshman to start at offensive tackle in a season opener for the Bulldogs since freshmen became eligible in 1973.

Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray commented that Theus doesn't look like a freshman out on the field and an endorsement from the signal caller can go a long way:

Quarterback Aaron Murray said he hasn't noticed that Theus is a rookie. He said he's certainly not in there "shaking and crying. He's out there, doing his thing, manning up."
