Both UGA and Georgia Tech are receptive to any Penn State football players interested in transferring to their respective programs.
UGA is taking a more aggressive approach, at this point. UGA coach Mark Richt admitted that he and his staff had already studied Penn State’s two-deep roster at Monday evening’s “UGA Day” in Atlanta. Here’s some of what Richt said to the AJC’s Jeff Schultz and others (click here to read Jeff’s column):
“We do have some space available and if somebody fits a need and they’re excited about coming we would look into that possibility. There may not be anybody. But we’re at least going to explore. … I don’t want people to think we’re trying to load up a bunch of them. It could be zero, it could be one or two.”
UGA has plenty of roster space after signing only 19 recruits last February – having three enroll early and two others fail to qualify.
Richt pointed out that his staff does not have that many previous relationships with many Penn State players.
