Pro Football Focus ranks Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb No. 6 in its preseason Heisman rankings.

Chubb, who has tallied a 7.4 yards per carry average in two years campus, ranked third in the nation with an elusive rating of 108.5 last fall. "Opponents stood no chance when trying to tackle Chubb as they bounced off his regularly, and perhaps most impressive, he then showed the speed to create big plays," wrote Steve Palazzolo. "Georgia got inconsistent quarterback play a year ago, and this year may be more of the same, so look for Chubb to carry the offense."

Tulsa sophomore S J.R. Reed transferred to Georgia.

A three-star prospect out of high school, Reed signed with Tulsa as part of the 2015 recruiting class. He appeared in 13 games last season and recorded five tackles with one pass defended. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder will have three seasons of eligibility remaining after he sits out the 2016 campaign due to the NCAA's pesky transfer regulations.

2016 DB signee Chad Clay, who was dismissed this week by Georgia after being arrested on a charge of theft, was apprehended after allegedly stealing a pair of $30 headphones.

The victim told police his headphones were stolen while playing basketball and Clay was identified as the suspect. A pair of $30 headphones led to posting bail to the amount of $1,500. This was Clay's second arrest since arriving on Georgia's campus before ever playing a single down for the Bulldogs.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman believes Georgia true freshman QB Jacob Eason "will be the Dawgs starter sooner than later even if it’s not in the opener against UNC."

"He’s talented, but keep in mind that unlike some other also hyped true freshman QBs, Eason didn’t quite face the same level of competition in high school these other guys did," Feldman wrote. "Adjusting to the speed of the SEC could take more than many expect." The 6-foot-5, 207-pounder is competing with Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey for starting duties in 2016. Neither of those options offer close to the same upside as Eason. Like Feldman, ESPN's Travis Haney isn't necessarily convinced that Eason will be starting against North Carolina. He tossed out a potential October 1st date with Tennessee as one option for Eason's first start if HC Kirby Smart opts for a more patient approach. This offseason, Smart has been consistent in saying that he does not want to rush his young gunslinger into action until he is truly ready.

Georgia has released four-star 2016 DB signee Chad Clay after he was arrested on theft charges.

"Unfortunately Chad will no longer be a member of our football team," first year head coach Kirby Smart announced. Clay was also arrested on a felony charge in March with fellow freshman Julian Rochester for firing a BB gun in the school dorm. Two arrests before playing a single down is not the best first impression.

Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb (knee) said that he would be ready to play in the season-opener against North Carolina on September 3.

"It's gonna be something to see," Chubb said. "I'm gonna be back for the opening game." Admirable rhetoric, to be sure, but HC Kirby Smart has preached the need for patience when it comes to Chubb's recovery from the serious injury to his left knee which sidelined him for the season last October. This spring, the 5-foot-10, 228-pound junior was limited solely to non-contact drills. August camp should give us a more complete picture of Chubb's progress and the actual likelihood that he will suit up against the Tar Heels come the first weekend in September.

Pro Football Focus' Gordon McGuiness urges Georgia to start true freshman QB Jacob Eason.

To begin with, the analyst argues that the Bulldogs' other two options, veterans Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey, aren't attractive. Overall, Lambert's completion percentage was 63 percent last year, but he completed less than 53 percent in five games. Lambert finished as PFF's 79th-highest graded quarterback last year. McGuiness doesn't like the stigma against starting true freshman at quarterback. He points out that four true freshman -- Washington’s Jake Browning (+21.6), Boise State’s Brett Rypien (+17.9), UCLA’s Josh Rosen (+16.9) and Baylor’s Jarrett Stidham (+16.0) -- finished last season with top 42 PFF QB grades. Eason made some incredible throws in the spring, where, per McGuiness, he "looked to be the best quarterback of the group." We're with McGuiness on this one.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Gorney wrote that Georgia 2017 G Netori Johnson is "a tough, hard-nosed, no-nonsense offensive guard who isn’t afraid to get physical, isn’t hesitant to absolutely dominate defensive tackles."

Johnson was an Alabama commit for a time, but he flipped over to Georgia in mid-April. He seems content with that decision. "I’m really happy I’m done. That’s the school for me," said the 6-foot-4, 325-pounder. "It has everything I was looking for in a school and that’s why I committed." Bulldog fans should be able to pick him out on campus easily enough come 2017 -- the fun-loving offensive lineman is fond of coloring his hair green, red, blue etc. Georgia OL coach Sam Pittman has a bet going with Johnson, who says, "Coach Pittman was saying if I play up to my potential then he’ll let me keep it. If I don’t he’s going to make me take it out. That’s motivation to keep my hair because this is a part of me and this is what I like." Given that he ranks as Rivals' No. 35 overall prospect for 2017, he will probably manage to keep it.

Four-star 2017 T D'Antne Demery committed to Georgia.

HC Kirby Smart strikes a blow against his former boss. Demery was choosing between Georgia and Alabama. He stands as the Bulldogs' first offensive tackle commitment for the 2017 cycle. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder said that his family "loves Georgia." He actually might have committed in May, but he pushed his announcement back into June after his mother was hospitalized last month.

A Power 5 defensive coach who spoke with ESPN praised Georgia S Dominick Sanders' ability to diagnose passing plays.

The anonymous coach noted that Sanders "does a good job of reading the QB and where he's throwing the ball" and that he "understands releases and pattern matching as a safety." The 6-foot, 185-pounder was a three-star prospect for the 2014 cycle. He showed off his ball-hawking skills in spades last season, picking off six passes while recording 48 tackles (5.0 for loss) and a sack. He has nine interceptions through his first two seasons of collegiate work.

Four-star 2017 T D'Antne Demery will announce his commitment on Wednesday, June 15.

Demery hails Brunswick, Georgia, and has been receiving strong interest from his home state Bulldogs. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 35 tackle for the 2017 cycle. In addition to the Dawgs, Arkansas, Florida and Auburn (among others) are also in the hunt for Demery's commitment.

Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb's "combination of power running with breakaway ability should again make him one of the nation’s best backs," writes Pro Football Focus' Jeff Dooley.

PFF graded Chubb as the sixth-best running back in the country two seasons ago, his last healthy campaign. The 5-foot-10, 228-pounder tore the PCL and a pair of ligaments in his left knee on Oct. 10 against Tennessee. We'd bet on him starting the opener against North Carolina on September 3, but that's no guarantee.

Georgia four-star QB commit Jake Fromm was named to Elite 11.

Former NFL quarterback and current Elite 11 counselor Trent Dilfer was asked for a comp for Fromm: "You get guys - I would put Chase Daniel in his group - I would put Drew Brees to a certain degree. Guys who are just natural passers. Throwing is easy - he knows how to change speed on the ball. He is a big, thick kid, that gives you a lot to work with. He's prepared for that physical part of it." The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder will be Nike’s headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon for the showcase between July 6-10.

NBC Sports analyst and former Georgia WR Hines Ward said that he would be interested in a position coaching wide receivers at his alma mater.

Speaking with Anthony Amey of WSB-TV, Ward said, "Hey Kirby Smart, if you are out there and you want a receivers coach, give me a call. It would definitely be something that I’d have to think about." Ward made similar comments after Smart -- a former teammate -- was hired to take over for HC Mark Richt in December. At the time, he said, "I’ve still got the itch to coach. I’ve always said that one day I would like to coach, and if I ever got the opportunity the place that I would like to do it is back at the University of Georgia." The Bulldogs just hired James Coley to serve as wide receivers coach, so any potential Ward hiring is incredibly unlikely to come before the close of the 2016 season, if it comes at all.

Georgia freshman TE Isaac Nauta had six receptions for 56 yards in the spring game.

Fellow TE Jackson Harris also had a big day, hauling in seven passes for 53 yards. By the end of the event, tight ends had caught 15 of the 51 passes (29.4 percent) thrown by quarterbacks. "Judging by G-Day, Jim Chaney's reputation of having a tight end friendly offense will continue at Georgia," Jason Butt of the Telegraph wrote. Last season, the Bulldogs only distributed 14.1 percent of its passes to tight ends. The 6-foot-4, 237-pound Nauta is the highest-rated incoming TE in the entire nation.
