ATHENS – UGA officials confirmed Saturday night what Jordan Love hinted about via Twitter. The redshirt sophomore cornerback is leaving Georgia and will seek to continue his football career elsewhere.
Love sent this message out via Twitter Saturday evening: “It’s been real Athens. . . . All good things come to an end.”
Georgia spokesman Claude Felton later confirmed Love’s departure to reporters covering the Bulldogs’ basketball game against Alabama Saturday night.
Love could not be reached for comment. But he did talk to Gentry Estes of Dawgs247.com, saying: “I don’t want to say anything about it right now. When I get everything together I’ll let y’all know.”
Love played sparingly as a backup cornerback for the Bulldogs his two seasons in Athens. This past season he recorded 12 tackles while appearing in 8 games, with most of his work coming on special teams. As a freshman, he played in all 13 games and finished with 9 tackles.
Georgia lost cornerback Brandon Boykin out of its starting secondary from last season. The rest of the unit returns intact and the Bulldogs have several rising sophomores who are expected to compete for playing time, including Nick Marshall, Damian Swann and Chris Sanders.
