WR Terry Godwin impressing Georgia coaching staff

The Georgia Bulldogs are entering a 2015 college football season that is expected to be a very good one for their program. They have a solid defense once again and their offense is poised to take a big step forward from last season.

Despite losing Todd Gurley, they are set at the running back position and will have a much improved wide receiving corps as well.

One of the young receivers that has been drawing a lot of praise from the coaching staff early on during practice is freshman Terry Godwin. He has shown flashes of star potential, and is expected to have a role immediately for the Bulldogs.

“Terry obviously is a very good player, a very good playmaker,” offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said. “I think he’s a guy who has picked up the system very well, has picked it up very fast. We’re asking him to do quite a bit, moving him around to different spots which is a compliment to him. We have him attacking the playbook in the classroom and then being able to put it on the field.”

At 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, Godwin is a speedy wide receiver who will give the Bulldogs plenty of favorable matchups throughout the course of the 2015 season.

During the majority of his high school career, Godwin played the quarterback position. He came out of high school as a wide receiver prospect, but was still getting the hang of the position. Seeing this type of praise surrounding him already in his collegiate career at the wide receiver position is very encouraging and exciting for the Bulldogs.

It will be interesting to see what type of role Godwin has during his freshman season. More than likely he will end up being a very big part of the offensive game plan by the end of the year, and his development throughout the course of the season will be obvious.

All of that being said, Godwin’s future with Georgia is extremely bright. There is nothing that can hold him back assuming he stays healthy and continues working hard on his game.

Expect to see him show off some of that star potential during the upcoming season and for the Bulldogs’ fan base to see exactly why there is so much excitement surrounding him so early.
