Reports: Smart, Georgia name Beck starting QB 

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart has named junior Carson Beck the Bulldogs starting quarterback for the 2023 season, according to multiple reports Saturday. 

Beck hails from Jacksonville, Florida, and was a four-star recruit from the class of 2020. 

A competitor in 12 games across his three-year Bulldogs career, Beck has completed 12 passes for 58 yards including a performance of 2-for-3 for 31 yards against TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship game. He stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 240 pounds. 

Beck will guide a Georgia offense that landed five selections to the preseason all-SEC team. He follows Heisman Trophy finalist Stetson Bennett as Bulldogs starting quarterbacks.
