Veteran Georgia defensive back Divaad Wilson has entered NCAA transfer portal
Georgia is expected to have arguably the best defense in the Southeastern Conference, if not the nation, this fall but the Bulldogs will be losing some depth on the back end of the unit before the season even arrives.
That’s because redshirt sophomore Divaad Wilson has entered the NCAA transfer portal and plans to leave the program. Wilson announced his decision on Monday morning.
“Change is inevitable and I want to personally thank my coaches and the fans as well… Newt checking out,” Wilson shared on Twitter. He also cited his desire to return closer to home in his statement. Wilson is a south Florida native.
Wilson appeared in 13 games for the Bulldogs last season and started against Notre Dame and Kentucky. He was rated as a four-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting cycle and signed with the Bulldogs out of Miami.
The defensive back finishes his career at Georgia with 28 tackles, one interception, two passes defended and one tackle for loss.
At this time, it’s unclear where Wilson will continue his college football career but he did hold offers from Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Florida State and Louisville coming out of high school.
