Former five-star recruit Ray Drew may have an opportunity to play a role against Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl, according to Seth Emerson of The Telegraph.

Drew has yet to start a game in his two years at Georgia but will see more time as John Jenkins is out due to academic issues.

Drew has 20 tackles and six quarterback pressures in 12 games as a reserve for Georgia. The majority of his playing time came against the triple option of Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern this season.

Georgia coach Mark Richt told Emerson that Drew needs to be a big factor in 2013 as it's time for him to step up "and be a great player for us."

Drew, nicknamed "Reverend Ray" after becoming an ordained minister as a teenager, remains positive about his role on the team as he hopes to continue to impress and build trust with the coaching staff.
