Richt promises open QB competition in spring drills

AP Sports Writer

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Brice Ramsey's edge in Georgia's quarterback competition this spring may not be as big as some believed.

Coach Mark Richt said Wednesday he'll give Ramsey, Faton Bauta and Jacob Park equal chances to win the job when spring practice begins March 17.

Ramsey was the top backup to 2014 senior Hutson Mason. Ramsey, a sophomore, has a strong arm but has had issues with accuracy. In the Bulldogs' Belk Bowl win over Louisville, he completed only four of nine passes with an interception.

Bauta, a junior, played in only two games last season. Park, a redshirt freshman, impressed teammates with his speed and strong leadership style while playing on the scout-team offense last season.

Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer is entering his first spring on Richt's staff.
