Two days after word emerged that quarterback Jacob Park was leaving Georgia, the school made it official with an announcement Thursday afternoon.
“We’ve had conversations during which we discussed all the viewpoints,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “In the end, he feels like the opportunity for significant playing time would be better at another school. I can understand his decision, and we’ll support him in finding a good fit at another institution.”
Park graduated from Stratford High in Goose Creek, South Carolina and worked with the scout team in 2014 as a true freshman. He completed 10-of-15 passes for 92 yards with an interception in the G-Day game.
“I want to thank Coach Richt and Georgia for the experience I’ve had in Athens,” Park said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity but now look forward to what’s next in my college career.”
Never miss a local story.
Park’s decision came less than a week after former Virginia quarterback Greyson Lambert announced he would enroll at Georgia.
