Hot off the presses: G-Day rosters

The good folks at Georgia sports information have just passed out the official rosters for Saturday's spring game.

The notables on the Red team (picked by Christian Robinson and Ben Jones:

- Secondary: Sanders Commings (listed at safey), along with safety Mark Deas, cornerbacks Jordan Love and Derek Owens.

- Outside linebackers: Cornelius Washington and Jarvis Jones. The inside linebackers, besides Robinson, are all walk-ons.

- Defensive line: Derrick Lott, Mike Thornton and Abry Jones.

- The offensive skill spots: Receivers Israel Troupe, Tavarres King and Michael Bennett. Quarterbacks Hutson Mason and Greg Bingham. Tailbacks Caleb King and Carlton Thomas. Fullback Zander Ogletree and tight ends Aron White and Arthur Lynch.

- Offensive line: LT Cordy Glenn, LG Kenarious Gates, Ben Jones, RG Ben Reynolds, RT A.J. Harmon.

- And the specialists: Drew Butler (punter) and Brandon Bogotay (kicker).

The coaches: Tony Ball, Will Friend, John Lilly, Todd Grantham, and Kirk Olivadotti.

The notables on the Black team (drafted by Brandon Boykin and Aaron Murray):

- Secondary: Branden Smith, Boykin, Jakar Hamilton, Shawn Williams,

- Linebackers: Alec Ogletree, Richard Samuel, Mike Gilliard, Brandon Burrows and Reuben Faloughi.

- Defensive line: Kwame Geathers, DeAngelo Tyson, Garrison Smith.

- Receivers: Marlon Brown, Rantavious Wooten, Chris Conley, Orson Charles at tight end.

- Christian LeMay backs up Murray at quarterback.

- Tailbacks: Washaun Ealey, Ken Malcome and walk-on star Brandon Harton. Fullback: Bruce Figgins.

- Offensive line: Justin Anderson, Dallas Lee, Chris Burnette, Brent Benedict, Kolton Houston.

- Specialists: Blair Walsh (kicker), Adam Erickson (punter.)

The coaches: Mike Bobo, Bryan McClendon, Rodney Garner, Scott Lakatos.

The first impression is that the Black team is a bit better, or at least it has more starters. Then again, it also has two players who sat out the spring with injuries (Dexter Morant and T.J. Stripling), another who has retired with injuries (Jeremy Longo) and Trinton Sturdivant.

NOTE: The original list provided by UGA had the coaching staffs mixed up; they were transposed. It's been fixed and what you see above is correct.

If you're Murray, don't you take Hutson Mason first? Good luck to the other squad.
