Five Georgia Bulldogs have been named to the 2015 ESPN All-SEC Preseason Team, the network announced today.
Sophomore running back Nick Chubb, who was also named to the 2015 ESPN Preseason All-American Team, leads the way for UGA.
Also named to the All-SEC Team were offensive lineman Greg Pyke, linebacker Jordan Jenkins, kicker Marshall Morgan, and return specialist Isaiah McKenzie.
Below is what ESPN had to say about each Bulldog named to the team:
RB: Nick Chubb, Georgia: He stepped onto the scene as a freshman with 1,547 yards, 14 touchdowns and averaged 7.1 yards per carry. He also started just eight games.
OG: Greg Pyke, Georgia: The bulldozing guard is versatile enough to play outside at left tackle if needed and is arguably Georgia’s best run-blocking lineman.
LB: Jordan Jenkins, Georgia: Georgia’s most versatile linebacker can play outside, inside and with his hand on the ground and has 146 career tackles with 15 sacks.
K: Marshall Morgan, Georgia: He hit 16 of 21 field goal attempts last season, including a long of 53 yards. Four of his field goals came from 40 yards or longer.
RS: Isaiah McKenzie, Georgia: The shifty McKenzie registered three touchdowns (two punts, one kickoff) last year and averaged 28.1 yards per kickoff and 12.1 on punts.
