Gilmore gearing for Green

Bring on A.J.

Georgia football coaches, players and fans have some company in hoping junior receiver A.J. Green gets cleared by the NCAA to play Saturday at South Carolina. Gamecocks sophomore cornerback Stephon Gilmore wants Green to suit up as well.

"We're going into the game planning on him playing," Gilmore said. "I'm looking forward to going against him. He's a good football player, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he's got."

Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said Tuesday that he would be highly disappointed if he didn't hear something this week on Green, who has been listed as "status to be determined" on this week's depth chart.

This time last week, Gilmore was prepping for 6-foot-6, 239-pound Southern Miss junior receiver DeAndre Brown, the most touted signee in Golden Eagles history. Brown didn't get his first catch against the Gamecocks until 9:48 remained in last Thursday's game and South Carolina in front 41-6.
