ATHENS — Jacob Park is transferring from Georgia following the expected arrival of former Virginia quarterback Greyson Lambert.
Park, a redshirt freshman, worked mostly with the scout team last year and might have had a tough time beating out Lambert, Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta for the starting quarterback job.
In the end, he feels like the opportunity for significant playing time would be better at another school,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “I can understand his decision, and we’ll support him in finding a good fit at another institution.”
Lambert, a nine-game starter at Virginia last year, confirmed his decision to transfer to Georgia in a text message to The Associated Press last week.
Lambert has two years of eligibility remaining. He lost the Cavaliers’ starting job in the spring.
Ramsey and Bauta ended spring as co-leaders in Georgia’s quarterback competition. Ramsey was the top backup last season to senior Hutson Mason.
The Bulldogs have a new offensive coordinator in Brian Schottenheimer.
Georgia can’t announce Lambert’s decision until he enrolls in graduate school or signs a financial aid agreement.
