Countdown to kickoff: #74 Maurice Hurt

#74 Player/Hometown/High School: Maurice Hurt Milledgeville (Ga.) Baldwin County
Hgt/Wgt: 6-foot-3, 310-lb Position: Offensive line Year: JR
Fall Depth Chart Projection: 2nd team guard

Spring Review: As one of the walking wounded, though he dressed out, when compared to the core group of spring linemen, Hurt did very little in the way of contact over the 15 practices. He might not have battled much, but he does look like he is in pretty good shape considering where he was when he first reported to Gainesville.

Fall Projection: Offensive coordinator and line coach Steve Addazio raves about him, going as far as calling him a returning starter (because he does have some starting experience). It's hard to get a read on him ability wise because he seems to always be dinged up. He isn't expected to start, but he should see some time in a backup role at either guard spot.

Others who wore the number: Randy Hand (2002-05), Zac Zedalis (1996-2001), Jason Odom (1992-95), Gantt Crouch (1990-91), Jason McLellan (1988), Jeff Zimmerman (1983-86), Vince Jones (1982), Gary Ellis (1981), Wally Hough (1978-1980), Bruce Mulliniks (1974-75), Kris Anderson (1971-73), Jack Youngblood (1968-70), Don Giordano (1967) and Sidney MacLean (1962-64)

Vote: In 2009 Hurt will...
