Georgia Tech’s Patrick Skov impressing at practice

Stanford transfer Patrick Skov has made a strong impression during Georgia Tech’s fall camp and may be in line for the starting B-back job.

Skov, a 6-1, 235-pound senior, caught the eye of Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson during the team’s second scrimmage.

“I thought Patrick played well,” Johnson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “That’s his best performance to date, I think.”

Skov, who is competing with freshman Marcus Marshall for the starting job, scored on a 15-yard touchdown run during the exhibition.

“Marcus (Marshall) did O.K.,” Johnson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I mean, he didn’t do bad. But it was good to see Patrick be physical and finish runs forward.”

According to an unofficial report from the school’s communcications office, Skov finished the day gaining 86 yards on eight carries.
