Position Previews: Defensive Backs

Aug 29, 2013

Three-fourths of the starting backfield was lost to graduation, leaving cornerback Damian Swann (5-11, 178, Jr.) as the lone returner. Swann paced the Bulldogs with four interceptions, including two in the bowl, and he added 53 tackles. Swann also recovered two fumbles and posted two sacks. Lettermen returning with Swann at cornerback are Blake Sailors (5-11, 179, Sr.), Sheldon Dawson (5-11, 190, So.) and Devin Bowman (6-0, 180, RSo.). At safety, the Bulldogs have Connor Norman (5-10, 201, Sr.), Josh Harvey-Clemons (6-5, 212, So.), Marc Deas (6-1, 217, Sr.) and Corey Moore (6-2, 214, Jr.) back. Norman, a two-game starter among that group, posted 18 tackles last year, while Harvey-Clemons and Moore each had 14. Georgia also returns Devin Gillespie (5-10, 189, RFr.), Lucas Redd (6-1, 207, Jr.), Austin Herod (5-10, 195, Sr.), Jesse Jones (6-0, 194, RSo.) and Jon Bailey (6-0, 195, Jr.) Early enrollees Reggie Wilkerson (5-11, 171, Fr.), Quincy Mauger (6-0, 200, Fr.) and Tray Matthews (6-0, 196, Fr.) and transfer Tristan Askew (5-11, 177, Jr.) got their first taste of college during spring drills.
