Durham climbing the depth chart

After a tough start to spring practice sophomore receiver Kris Durham provided one of the best offensive highlights on G-Day. Durham's six catches, 137 yards receiving, and two touchdowns were the culmination of several months of tough work. Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo and receivers coach John Eason changed the receiving system Georgia runs and moved several players around this spring to test the depth.

"This is definitely starting from scratch and there are no set spots you can ask coach Eason or anyone else that. We all have to earn our spots," said Durham.

With ten returning scholarship wide receivers coming back and as many as three new faces joining the mix this fall, Durham knows he will have to work hard to stay in the rotation at receiver this fall.

"It is encouraging (seeing all the talent), but it gets kind of hectic. You know you have to go out and work everyday, catch all your passes, and try to do the little things right," said Durham.

Durham saw time at all three receiver positions this spring and as fall camp looms on the horizon he is trying to position himself for playing time.
