Seven walk-ons get 'ships:
Scholarships have been awarded to seven current University of Georgia football players according to an announcement by UGA head coachMark Richt.
Scholarships are being renewed for former walkons Blake Sailors andBrandon Harton, both of whom were awarded scholarships for the first time last year. Sailors is a junior defensive back from Athens and Harton is a junior tailback from Reidsville.
Richt awarded scholarships for the first time to junior defensive back Luis Capella, Augusta; redshirt freshman fullback Merritt Hall, Alpharetta; junior split end Rhett McGowan, Calhoun; redshirt sophomore defensive backConnor Norman, Duluth; and redshirt sophomore linebacker Kosta Vavlas, Tarpon Springs, Fla.
Georgias offensive line still has six players that coaches are counting on as game-ready.
Xzavier Ward isnt in that group, but offensive coordinator Mike Bobo likes what hes seeing from the 6-foot-7, 293-pound redshirt freshman from Colquitt County.
Ward has shown flashes at practice. This is his first time practicing and were really pleased with him and how hes not afraid to put his face on there. Hes got good pad level. Hes just got to continue to heal and get his knee better.
Ward is returning from ACL surgery. Hes worked at right tackle behind John Theus and Watts Dantzler.

Tre Bell flips from Gators to Vandy:
A source close to the situation told The Sun that UF’s coaches wanted to see Bell in action this summer so they could critique his play, something several of Florida’s commits were required to do. But Bell never attended any of Florida’s camps in June and didn’t work out when he came down for Friday Nights Lights on July 27. The source said Bell refused to participate because his coach, Rich Hansen, advised him against it.
With many more highly rated corner prospects still left on the board, the Gators decided to part ways with the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder during his unofficial visit to UF on Aug. 2. Bell has not spoken to any media outlets since that time.
The top candidates to replace Bell are Mackenzie Alexander (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee), Southern Cal commit Jalen Ramsey (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood Academy), Georgia commit Shaq Wiggins (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) and Priest Willis (Tempe, Ariz./Marcos De Niza). Ramsey, who is teammates with Florida quarterback commit Max Staver, will officially visit UF this fall and appears to be the most likely option for the Gators.
