The Georgia Bulldogs have high hopes entering the season with the return of quarterback Aaron Murray, but the senior signal-caller will be down a target after tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith decided to transfer from the program. There are no teams immediately linked to Flournoy-Smith, but Bulldogs coach Mark Richt mentioned the intriguing possibility that the troubled tight end could return to the program.
For now, the JUCO route seems to be the most likely for Flournoy-Smith. He has also talked to Georgia Military College, according to Dog Bytes Online.
Flournoy-Smith did not record a reception at all last season, but his departure leaves a lack of depth at tight end for the Bulldogs.
The tight end was recently in legal troubles after being charged with falsely reporting a crime. Flournoy-Smith told police that his textbooks were stolen, but the police found out he tried selling them back to the bookstore.
There is no word on whether or not he had decided to step away from the program because of the legal issues.
