Benedict Leaves Football Program


DSC_8274Redshirt freshman offensive linemen Brent Benedict has left the football team according to an email from coach Mark Richt.

Benedict severely injured his knee while still in high school and has struggled to regain the form that made him one of the top recruits in the country coming out of the Bolles School in Jacksonville.

Benedict participated in spring practice and finished as the number two right guard.

The announcement did not indicate if he intended to give up football entirely.

The loss of Benedict will likely elevate redshirt sophomore Dallas Lee to the backup spot on the roster or backup right tackle Austin Long could shift over if true freshman Watts Dantzler shows in fall practice that he is ready to play at right tackle.
