Six scholarship players have departed from Georgia this offseason

UGA’s having another eventful offseason.

Wide receiver Uriah LeMay becomes the sixth player to leave the program in some facet this offseason. The redshirt freshman receiver leaves without ever playing in a single game.

LeMay was one of the four players arrested on theft by deception charges, and Mark Richt confirmed via a statement that it was LeMay’s decision to leave.

“Uriah made the decision in order to have a better opportunity for playing time,” Richt said. “He has our best wishes in achieving all his goals as a student and athlete.”

LeMay’s brother, Christian, was the first Bulldog to leave the program this offseason, as he transferred to Jacksonville State after the bowl game. Josh Harvey-Clemons was dismissed and transferred to Louisville. Cornerback Shaq Wiggins also transferred, and his likely landing spot is at Louisville, too. Linebacker Paris Bostick transferred to Iowa Western Community College and defensive tackle De’Andre Johnson was medically disqualified.

The two biggest losses are defensive backs Harvey-Clemons and Wiggins, which leaves a questionable secondary with even more questions.

  • Although it wasn’t technically the offseason, Shaq Fluker left the team in December.

  • So how many guys does UGA have on scholarship now? I believe it was a few years ago they were way below the limit. That is when they followed up with signing a lot of JUCO guys I think.
    Does this mean next year they can sign 6 more guys than most teams?
