ATHENS - Another defensive back is leaving the Georgia football program.
Brendan Langley, a sophomore whose playing time varied drastically the past two years, is tranfering. The team announced the news late on Monday night.
“Brendan came to me and expressed an interest in moving to another institution that may provide more playing opportunity,” head coach Mark Richt said in a statement. “ I told him I understood and wish him nothing but the best.”
Langley's career started out with promise, as he started the first four games of his freshman year. But he struggled and hardly returned to the field the rest of the season. This year he initially switched to receiver, where he was expected to redshirt. But when the team lost more defensive backs (to transfer and medical issues) Langley was switched back to cornerback, where he started one game and played well.
