Pruitt addresses Shamburger not traveling to Georgia

KNOXVILLE — Jeremy Pruitt took part in the weekly SEC teleconference Wednesday and was asked about defensive back Shawn Shamburger.

Shamburger did not travel to the game at Georgia last week.

“When you travel in the SEC, you can only take 70 guys,” Pruitt said. “You whittle it down to the guys that give you the best opportunity to win and we took the guys that we thought would do that.”

The sophomore defensive back from Colquitt County in Moultrie, Ga., played in 11 games last season.

Pruitt indicated that inconsistency played a factor in Shamburger not traveling.

“There‚Äôs been a lot of inconsistency on both sides of the ball and we are looking for guys that can do it over and over again without that,” Pruitt concluded.
