Henry To’o To’o, So., LB

On Georgia’s rushing offense…

“That’s what Georgia prides itself on. They want to run that rock. They’re going to do everything they can to get the running game going and they have the team to do it. They have a great offensive line, obviously Zamir White and all the backs that they have, so we just got to be honed in this week.”

On the guys who have rotated in at outside linebacker…

“It’s helped out our team tremendously. It’s given us a chance to have guys in there that are fresh so that we’re able to rush the edge, that we’re able to play the run. It helps us being able to rotate guys like that, being able to especially have the young guys contribute to the team. Every single person in that outside linebacker group helps out tremendously.”

On what questions Quavaris Crouch and Jeremy Banks ask him most about playing inside linebacker…

“Just like what I see and how I react to things. They ask me where I place my eyes. We kind of try to feed off each other, but mostly they kind of just ask me about the playbook because I’ve been in there. You know JB (Jeremy Banks) was on the offensive side of the ball and Q (Quavaris Crouch) was an outside linebacker, so Q had a good grasp of it, but just the little things that they try to ask me about, how the playbook is and just the schematics. You know they’re great football players. They both have tremendous instincts, so I just try my best to help them out in the playbook.”

On if Crouch and Banks have changed their approach since seeing their roles increase…

“JB (Banks) and Q (Crouch) have been hard workers since the beginning. It hasn’t just started when the season started (or) when they started playing in the games. They’ve been working hard ever since quarantine and ever since they knew they were going to be inside linebackers. They’ve done a tremendous job of putting their heads down working, not only them but everybody in our linebacker group. They’ve done a tremendous job of trying to know everything, getting as much knowledge as they can, and they let their talent take over the rest.”

On playing well despite missing guys on defense and looking forward to having everyone available…

“We can’t wait until we get everybody back, everybody 100% back. But we have the mentality of the next man up. We never look at the next man that’s filling in somebody’s position to be a downer to the team. We believe that every single body on this team will contribute and will do the best that they can.”

On what he’s seen from the Georgia quarterbacks, specifically Stetson Bennett…

“That they do a great job of running that offense, especially behind their big o-line. They try to run the ball. They get it out as fast as they can, so we’ve just got to be able to contain them. They both can move; they both have good vision on where to put the ball and ball placement. That’s kind of what I’ve seen through my one day of studying, so I just got to be able to dig deeper as I go throughout the week.”

On if Georgia’s offense seems any different without Jake Fromm…

“From what I’ve seen, they’re still Georgia. They’re still trying to pound the ball like you were saying and that’s Georgia football. They’re trying to run that rock down your throat, so nothing spectacular that’s been different. Everything has been what we expected to see on film and will be expected going throughout this week.”

On Coach Pruitt saying Georgia has no weaknesses and if he sees any weaknesses in Georgia’s team…

“Coach Pruitt hit it right on the spot. They’re big boys and we have to do our part. We have to come out mentally sound, physically sound, and give it our all. They’re a great, phenomenal team and they’re not just going to lay down. So, we got to give everything we’ve got throughout this week and sort it out on Saturday.”

On if there’s been some extra excitement this week or if they are treating this just like any other game…

“We come out with the mentality that it’s another game. We give our all in every single week that we have and that’s something that Coach Pruitt harps on. He tells us that every single week is another opportunity to be the best players you can, be the best team that you can. Yeah, this is a big team, but we got to just have the same mentality throughout the entire season no matter who we’re playing.”
