Checking on Georgia football transfers after Week 4

The Georgia Bulldogs have a lot more players that transfer away from the football program than transfer into it. Why is that?

A large number of Georgia players are unable to get as much playing time as they’d prefer.

Additionally, some players want to transfer closer to home or to somewhere that will give them a full scholarship.

Georgia has had several walk-on players that have transferred to other programs and earned much bigger roles with their new teams.

Let’s take a look at how several former Georgia Bulldogs performed through the first four weeks of the 2022 college football season.
