After toying with the idea of playing more than one quarterback in their season opener against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday, Georgia head coach Mark Richt has finally decided on naming Greyson Lambert as his lone, starting quarterback. Richt made the announcement after Monday’s practice.
Lambert, a 6’5″ junior from Jesup, Georgia, beat out Brice Ramsey for the right to be starter. Richt said Ramsey will will share second-team snaps with Faton Bauta this week in practice
“There may be other or others who get in the game. But right now the thing that I know that he’ll start the game,” Richt said of Lambert (courtesy of Seth Emerson of Dawg Nation). “Very, very close competition. Still being contested in my mind. But at this point we felt it would be wise to name a starter and get him ready to play in this ballgame. … We’ll start playing ball that way and see how it goes.”
Lambert, who transferred from Virginia in June and is immediately eligible to play, is coming off a season with the Cavaliers in which he passed for 1,632 yards and threw 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
