ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia held its final practice Thursday before its annual G-Day spring game.

So apparently that was a good time for comedian Chris Tucker and actor Emmanuel Lewis, as well as five-star offensive tackle signee Isaiah Wilson, to get a glimpse of what’s to come Saturday.

It was not clear why Tucker and Lewis visited practice, though both have connections to nearby Atlanta. Tucker was born there and Lewis graduated from Clark Atlanta University.

Wilson will enroll at Georgia this summer ahead of the start of fall camp in August.

Tucker, Lewis and Wilson all appeared on Georgia football’s Snapchat account; Tucker and Lewis had their picture taken with Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart.

Georgia strength and conditioning coach Scott Sincliar also posted a group photo with Tucker and Lewis included on Twitter.

Georgia’s G-Day is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. ET on SEC Network.

Other notes from practice:

* Georgia practiced in helmets and shorts.

* Both tight end Jeb Blazevich and offensive tackle Ben Cleveland were not seen at practice. Blazevich sprained his knee in Georgia’s scrimmage last Saturday and Cleveland suffered an undisclosed injury apparently some time during practice last week.

* Though not in full pads, tight end Isaac Nauta (shoulder) and defensive back Deangelo Gibbs (shoulder) looked to be full participants.

* Sophomore wide receiver Riley Ridley (ankle) also appeared to be a full participant. Smart mentioned earlier in the spring that Ridley would possibly be able to practice toward the end of the spring practice schedule.

* At wide receiver, the pairings on the outside continue to remain the same in terms of where players are lined up during drills. Javon Wims and Jayson Stanley are running first, with freshman Jeremiah Holloman and junior Michael Chigbu second. Sophomore Tyler Simmons and Ridley are running behind them in the third group.

* At slot receiver, junior Terry Godwin is first and sophomore Mecole Hardman is second. Hardman played defensive back but now is with the receivers on a full-time basis.

* Redshirt freshman Chauncey Manac has continued to work with the defensive line during media viewing. He had been splitting time between there and outside linebacker.
