Justin Scott-Wesley's career altered, not over


When Georgia's Justin Scott-Wesley tore his ACL two seasons ago, he was just starting to emerge as a playmaker. He had at least 50 yards receiving in each of his first four games, including a career-high 116 yards and a touchdown against No. 6 South Carolina.

And then the injury happened.

It set him back a year, and though he returned late last season, he played only sparingly down the stretch. Now the senior is hoping to finish his career on a good note.

The only problem is Scott-Wesley is having to learn a new offense. Former offensive coordinator Mike Bobo moved on to be the head coach at Colorado State, leaving Georgia's offense to longtime NFL assistant coach Brian Schottenheimer.

"Yeah, I was coming into my own, I was comfortable in the offense and Bobo's system," Scott-Wesley told Seth Emerson of the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. "It was good for me. And now it's time to learn. It's time to move on. You can't dwell on the past."

Scott-Wesley is not yet sure what his role on the team will be. He had just one catch for 16 yards in Saturday's spring game. But if he can find that form he showed before the injury, it would be a huge help for whichever Georgia quarterback wins the job.
