Greyson Lambert begins quest to be Georgia's quarterback

Georgia quarterback Greyson Lambert works during a college football practice Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015, in Athens, Ga.

ATHENS, Ga. -- New Georgia quarterback Greyson Lambert didn't graduate early from Virginia without possessing some common sense.

So he knew just where to turn when it came to buddying up to new teammates.

"I've been hanging out with the offensive line a lot," Lambert said Tuesday. "I love those guys, and I kind of did the same thing at Virginia. They're just really good guys."

The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder from Jesup. Ga., joined redshirt junior Faton Bauta and redshirt sophomore Brice Ramsey in a competition that has no timetable according to coach Mark Richt. Ramsey played in eight games last season and finished off last December's Belk Bowl win over Louisville after Hutson Mason was hurt, but Lambert has the experience edge, having made nine 2014 starts for the Cavaliers.

Lambert completed 154 of 261 passes (59 percent) a year ago for 1,632 yards with 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
