Former Georgia linebacker Jaden Hunter announces transfer to Western Kentucky
Jaden Hunter made it official on Friday, he’s left Kirby Smart’s program for Western Kentucky.
The redshirt sophomore linebacker entered the NCAA transfer portal in April after previously being arrested in Athens for driving with a suspended or revoked license. The Atlanta native appeared in four games for the Bulldogs during his time at Georgia.
On Friday, he announced his decision to transfer to Western Kentucky with the following Twitter update:
“I just want to thank God for staying faithful! And a special thanks to Coach Smart and staff for teaching me all that I know about ball. My time there has made me into the man that I am today. And thank you to all of the colleges that have been in contact with me through this process! So with that being said, I’m a Hilltopper!”
Hunter was ranked as a four-star prospect and the nation’s No. 9 outside linebacker out of Westlake High School in the 2017 recruiting cycle.
