Georgia’s defensive secondary gets more interesting by the week.
Over the weekend it was announced starting cornerback Shaq Wiggins would transfer. Now, defensive back Brendan Langley is moving to wide receiver, an area of the depth chart that is already loaded for 2014.
Langley started four games at cornerback last year, and he finished with 12 tackles and two pass breakups. However, he played mostly safety this spring.
That’s three total losses for the secondary: Josh Harvey-Clemons (dismissed), Shaq Wiggins (transfer) and Langley (moving to receiver).
Langley’s move to receiver will help with future depth beyond the 2014 season, but it leaves the secondary thinner. Damian Swann is a lock to start as one cornerback, and walk-on Aaron Davis took the most first-team reps this spring. Tray Matthews could start at safety, and former running back JJ Green made strides in the secondary this spring.
New defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is shaking up one of the worst statistical secondaries of 2013.
