SEC spring game schedule 2018: Previews, questions
How much, if at all, does Tua Tagovailoa play in the spring game? After leading Alabama in the second half of the national championship game, Tagovailoa was expected to compete for the starting quarterback job with Jalen Hurts. But the sophomore quarterback picked up an injury earlier in spring practice and his availability has been limited.
Below is what Saban had to say on Tuesday, April 3 about Tagovailoa’s availability for the spring game. As you can see they are taking things slowly with the young quarterback.
“We don’t have a plan yet for what quarterback is taking what snaps. Tua was able to practice some today, was able to throw the ball a little bit, so he’s getting back into it. We had him on a pitch count, we didn’t really do a lot with him but he was able to do a lot of things in practice today. So that’s encouraging.”
Does a running back emerge? After seeing both Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway depart, Auburn has somewhat of a void at the running back position. The Tigers have recruited well at the position in recent years, so there shouldn’t be a significant talent drop off. The names to watch at the position include Kam Martin as well as Malik Miller. Auburn also had 4-star 2018 running back Asa Martin enroll early and has another 4-star prospect in Harold Joiner enrolling in the summer.
With Jarrett Stidham’s status uncertain, expect the Auburn running backs to get a lot of attention.
How does Justin Fields look in his Sanford Stadium debut? Fields is the top-rated player in Georgia’s top-rated 2018 signing class and has Georgia fans very excited for this year’s G-Day game.
Fields likely won’t replace Jake Fromm as the starter right away, but he could use the spring game as a chance to show off some of his athleticism and natural gifts that helped make him the No. 2 overall player in the 2018 class. Fields offers a wrinkle that Fromm does not in that Fields is a more mobile quarterback, who also has a cannon for an arm. Look for Fields to try and impress many of the Georgia fans who will be taking in G-Day, as the Georgia spring game has always been one of the best attended since Kirby Smart took over.
How quickly does Jeremy Pruitt end up making Tennessee look like Alabama? Early on it was apparent at Georgia that Kirby Smart was turning Georgia into Alabama 2.0. Pruitt will attempt to do the same at Tennessee, as he was hired to clean up the mess that Butch Jones left.
Pruitt has already begun making talent upgrades, as he landed the services of graduate transfer quarterback Keller Chrsyt. But Chrsyt won’t play in the spring game, as he is still finishing up at Stanford.
