ATHENS, Ga. - After seeing only limited playing time the last three games, redshirt freshman quarterback D.J. Shockley said he hopes to have a more significant role against Georgia Tech.
"It's real important,'' Shockley said. "I want to know going into the game I could make a difference.''
Shockley said he is aware "there is a lot'' of speculation about his future, including talk that he may transfer.
"I heard so much of it when I went home for the weekend,'' Shockley said. Shockley specifically denied a rumor that he already has told coach Mark Richt he will transfer.
"No, it's not anything saying I'm going to leave,'' Shockley said. "That's not even an issue right now.''
Against Auburn on Nov. 16, Shockley played one series in the first quarter and rotated with starter David Greene in a second-quarter possession. But when Greene began moving the offense with two scoring drives to open the second half, Richt did not make another change.
