Countdown to UGA-OSU: 26 Days (#26 Christian Norton)

#26 Christian Norton, CB
5-7, 160, Athens GA (Clarke Central HS), Sr.

Note: Tony Wilson would have been wearing #26 this season, but repeated injuries, and perhaps some offseason legal issues, led to him voluntarily leaving the program.

Norton walked on at UGA and immediately received a redshirt. He spent last season working out with the scout team. He was an outstanding football and track star at Clarke Central, and since arriving at UGA has been a stellar student.

Depth Chart Analysis: Norton will provide some added depth in working with the scout team, but he stands little chance to see any time at cornerback for the UGA defense. Given that he is a senior, it is possible he could get some mop-up duty this season, but even that may be unlikely.

Other famous #26s in UGA history: CB Ben Smith, RB Fred Brown
