Georgia DB, former top-50 recruit, reportedly listed in transfer portal, not currently enrolled
Deangelo Gibbs’ Georgia career appears to be ending. Jake Rowe of Dawgs247 is reporting that the sophomore defensive back is in the NCAA transfer portal and not enrolled for the new semester at UGA, which began Wednesday.
Entering the transfer portal is not a binding decision, but not taking classes this semester would make him ineligible to play for Georgia in 2019. Dawgs247 notes that Gibbs did not make the trip with the team to the Sugar Bowl or practice in Athens.
At the end of the 2017 season, Gibbs was not with the team due to what Kirby Smart told reporters was a medical issue. He did not travel to Georgia Tech for the regular-season finale or join the team for any of the postseason games that followed.
A product of Grayson, the former 4-star recruit (No. 4 safety prospect, No. 6 Georgia recruit and No. 49 overall nationally) has played in 13 games in two seasons with the Bulldogs.
Gibbs has until the end of UGA’s drop/add period (Jan. 15) to enroll in classes.
