ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia true freshman Isaiah Wilson worked as the second-team left tackle Wednesday for the second consecutive day.

Wilson, a five-star prospect from Brooklyn, N.Y., started out preseason camp by working as the third-team right tackle before moving to second-team left guard. He currently is behind senior Isaiah Wynn – who was voted third-team preseason All-SEC by league coaches – at left tackle, based on the drills seen during the media viewing period.

Wilson (6 feet 7, 345 pounds) was considered one of the top-five tackles as well as a top-20 prospect overall in the 2017 signing class.

The first-team offensive line remained the same. From left to right, it was Wynn, Pat Allen, Lamont Gaillard, Solomon Kindley and true freshman Andrew Thomas, a four-star signee from Atlanta.

Other practice notes:

* The safeties looked to be doing a drill of trying to determine where the quarterback was going with the football. They would have to play a deep ball or one thrown underneath. In order to simulate a receiver going over the middle, coaches would slide “Tackle Tubes” for the players to hit and cause an incompletion. The group had Dominick Sanders, J.R. Reed, Richard LeCounte, Jarvis Wilson and Tray Bishop. There were others that took part, but this was the first group of five.

* True freshman wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman looked to be practicing on a limited basis. Holloman was being stretched out by a sports medicine staff member when the media first came out. He later took part in a one-on-one drill against a cornerback. Holloman has been dealing with a hamstring issue.
