Monty Rice
– Georgia’s 1st scrimmage of Fall Camp –
Saturday, August 12, 2017

 
 
Kirby Smart addressed the media on Monday and talked about freshman inside linebacker, Monty Rice. The head coach talked about Rice being able to come in as an early enrollee and practice with the team in the spring helped him develop and grow into the player he is now.
 

He has grown up a lot,” Smart said. “He was one of the guys that was very fortunate to get spring practice, so he got spring practice, which helped him be a little bit ahead of the other backs that we signed as far as knowing what to do. We thought all spring that he was going to be a good player because he was really fast. He thumps you when he gets there. It was more of can he be comfortable and not have anxiety playing in the heat of the moment. I thought he got over some of that. He made a play against Mississippi State there at the end of the game. I thought that gave him some confidence. He was able to make some plays the other day. I think Monty is going to be a mighty fine football player. He is just growing. He has shown a lot of growth and he has a long way to go.”

 
 
Rice may be a freshman but Smart thinks there is something special about him. He thinks Rice is going to be a fine football player one day and shows the traits to be great. It will be interesting to see how the youngster progresses.
