Recap of Yellow Jackets’ Wednesday spring practice

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson was “pleased” with the effort given during the Yellow Jackets’ sixth spring football practice on Wednesday.

Below are images from the Yellow Jackets’ sixth spring practice.

After speaking with Johnson, beat reporter Ken Sugiura reports that there is not yet a clear No. 2 in the competitions at quarterback or B-back.

Redshirt junior Matthew Jordan has the most collegiate experience and is the expected starter at quarterback. Jordan started at quarterback in November against Virginia Tech while quarterback Justin Thomas was sidelined with an injury. Junior quarterback TaQuon Marshall is competing for the second-string spot.

B-back Dedrick Mills spoke to media on Wednesday for the first time as a sophomore after leading the Yellow Jackets last season with 771 rushing yards and with 12 rushing touchdowns as a true freshman.
