Josh Harvey-Clemons could switch positions

The freshman could be anywhere in 2013.

Georgia Bulldogs freshman Josh Harvey-Clemons has played all over the field this season in games and in practice. But his future position is still up in the air, writes Seth Emerson of The Telegraph.

Harvey-Clemons was recruited as an outside linebacker but moved to safety for the Bulldogs. But he played some linebacker late this season and has even practiced at inside linebacker recently.

Where will he be next year? He doesn't quite know yet:

"I'm kind of lost too, like y'all are," Harvey-Clemons said after Wednesday's practice. "I don't know what I'm gonna play next year. It really depends on the weight I put on."

The weight is the key: The freshman from Valdosta is currently listed at 207 pounds, which isn't much for a 6-foot-5 guy. That's why he was at safety this season. He's been trying to put on weight, and if he can get 20-30 pounds on him he could be at linebacker. Then again, that could be inside or outside linebacker.

Or still at safety.

Harvey-Clemons said he hasn't been told where he'll be next season and the coaches haven't talked to him about it. Georgia coach Mark Richt said the secondary next season is "going to be wide open," Emerson wrote. Both starting safety positions will be up for grabs next year.

The freshman out of Valdosta, Ga., has spent most of this season playing special teams.

Harvey-Clemons will suit up for Georgia on Jan. 1, 2013, when the Bulldogs play Nebraska in the Capitol One Bowl.
