WR Israel Troupe doesn’t make trip, Dogs down to 4 scholarship WRs
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Greetings once again from EverBank Field, where we’re closing in on kickoff for the annual Georgia-Florida rivalry.
Some pregame news and notes:
- Senior wide receiver Israel Troupe did not make the trip. No official reason was given as of yet but that obviously leaves the Bulldogs extremely thin at wide receiver.
- Georgia was already having to go without leading receiver Malcolm Mitchell. The freshman split end from Valdosta was a late scratch when he failed to sufficiently overcome a pulled hamstring injury.
- Rantavious Wooten (concussion) still has not returned since his late September car accident. At this point he would seem likely to be heading toward a medical redshirt season.
- So all that leaves the Bulldogs with four scholarship wide receivers with which to compete. That’s starters Marlon Brown and Tavarres King and backups Michael Bennett and Chris Conley. Walk-ons Taylor Bradberry and Rhett McGowan complete the receiving corps for this game.
We’re almost there. Buckle up people!
