Georgia Tech linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu sang the praises of his defensive-line teammates who he hopes will make his work much easier this fall. He noted, for example, the work they’ve done in pass-rushing drills and to keep their weight under prescribed limits.
“The defensive line is definitely a group that’s coming together well,” he said.
Attaochu said that nose tackle T.J. Barnes has taken his offseason strength and conditioning training work very seriously and is ready to step into the starting lineup.
“Physically, he’s cut weight,” he said. “In conditioning drills, he can stand a lot more. He can be out there running with the slimmest defensive linemen. He’s looking pretty agile.”
Attaochu also liked what he has seen from incoming freshman linemen such as Francis Kallon and Pat Gamble.
“From what I’ve seen of them, they’re high-character guys who work hard,” he said.
