Georgia safety Richard LeCounte III confirms plans for 2021 season
Georgia S Richard LeCounte III missed the last few games of the 2020 season with injuries suffered during a motorcycle accident.
Thankfully, he’s OK and will soon be back on the football field. The only question was whether he’d do it in a Georgia uniform or in the NFL.
Well, on Wednesday evening, LeCounte confirmed that he was declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft, bringing his Georgia career to an end:
In his 4 years with the Bulldogs, LeCounte recorded 176 tackles, 8 interceptions, 10 pass breakups, 4 forced fumbles and 6 fumble recoveries.
LeCounte is one of the best safeties in the country, so he’ll be missed in Athens next year. We’ll see where he ends up going in the draft.
