Logan Gray transferring

Logan Gray will not return to the Georgia football team, the receiver announced through UGA on Tuesday.

Gray, who switched from quarterback during last year’s spring practice, has elected to graduate in May and then playing somewhere else. The NCAA allows players who have graduated to play without sitting a year.

“I plan on playing my last year of football while pursuing my Master’s degree at another school, most likely close to home, where my family can attend all of games,” said Gray, a native of Columbia, Mo.

Gray went on to thank head coach Mark Richt and his teammates.

Gray had nine catches for 105 yards and one touchdown catch in 2010. He also returned punts.

He was a reserve quarterback for the Bulldogs in 2008 and 2009. He switched to receiver last year at his request.

Gray becomes the third player to announce his transfer, joining linebacker Marcus Dowtin and safety Nick Williams. Guard Tanner Strickland also decided to pass on his senior year after graduating in December.

As for Georgia, it also lost receiver A.J. Green to the NFL draft, which it expected. It still has plenty of depth at the position, led by Tavarres King and Marlon Brown, and is adding several freshmen. Highly-touted recruit Malcolm Mitchell can play receiver or defensive back. Receiver Chris Conley is already enrolled and will go through spring practice with the team.

The news also means that Georgia can more easily absorb new players and still meet the NCAA limit of 85 scholarships.

Damn. Who's going to Fair Catch punts next year?

Countdown until AJC refugee's obligatory "Good riddance/he couldn't stand the competition/blahblahblah..." comment.

F'em, Logan. You're a DGD who did whatever was asked of you. Good luck.

Mitchell has said on Scouts (I think). That he has spoken to Richt and will be playing receiver. That should be exciting to Dawg fans looking for a game breaking receiver. We have likely seen the last of B. Smith on offense. Not a bad thing. It was way too predictable. We need someone who can be out there on most downs and still be that dangerous with the ball. He used that receiver screen a lot in HS, so he could get some of AJ's looks there too, along with reverses, etc.

Wow... I guess this is one of the big surprises for UGA nation before NSD. Well what else is new?

Logan Gray is a DGD for sure. He didn't have the career he--or many of us--thought/hoped he would have, but he was always willing to do what the team and coaches needed him to do.

I wish him the best at his new school. He should be an asset to any program.

At least Logan will graduate, so his time at UGA is still fulfilling, just not as he would have liked in football. Maybe he can set the world on fire at QB at the place he transfers to.

I wish Logan the best. He was a selfless team member and a DGD.

I wonder if Smith will be moving to WR full time now?

Best of luck to you Logan, hope you are able to find a place where things work out for you.
