What will CMR do?

With the news breaking of Akeem Hebron's season long suspension from the University of Georgia breaking this afternoon, the Georgia Bulldogs are shorthanded again at linebacker heading into the 2007 season.

Georgia has only two healthy game tested linebackers Brandon Miller and Dannell Ellerbe heading into the 2007 season. Darius Dewberry played in a couple of games at linebacker, but saw most of his action on special teams as a true freshman. Marcus Washington the other experienced linebacker is struggling following LCL surgery and may not play in 2007 and end with a medical redshirt.

Georgia's other two scholarship options at linebacker are redshirt freshmen Akeem Dent and Darryl Gamble. Dent had a great spring and is expected to challenge Dewberry for the starting SAM linebacker spot. Gamble worked at the Mike linebacker, but he missed almost all of the spring with a broken foot. Gamble, Dent, and Dewberry will now each get a look at the Will linebacker spot as they try to fill the void left by Hebron's departure.
