Miami Vs. Georgia Tech: Quayshawn Nealy, Jabari Hunt-Days Seize Opportunity

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets linebackers Quayshawn Nealy and Jabari Hunt-Days have made the most of their opportunities. After Julian Burnett suffered a career-ending neck injury at the Sun Bowl and Daniel Drummond was suspended, the inside linebacker duo has been a big part in holding opposing offenses to 3.6 yards per rush and 4.4 yards per play.

Both Nealy and Hunt-Days have been doing so many things together, according to Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Nealy has been outspoken on how the two of them have taken on the challenges of starting this season:

"Me and Jabari take it on like a brotherhood. We've been taking the initiative. We've spent extra time establishing what Groh's trying to do. That's how we are building on it."

The linebackers will have a challenge on Saturday as they face Miami Hurricanes freshman Duke Johnson who has scored six touchdowns and is averaging 9.4 yards per carry.
