Post Attrition hits Georgia secondary

Saturday May 30, 2009

The Georgia football program announced today that sophomore safety John Knox will be transferring to Georgia Military College for “academic considerations.”

Knox played in 12 games as a redshirt freshman and only recorded 8 tackles, but he was going to be counted on to make a bigger contribution this year as a hard hitter pushing Georgia’s starting safeties. He started against Tech last year as a response to the option, and he had four tackles and even added a reception at G-Day this year.

A transfer to GMC sometimes leads to a return to Athens, but not many of those were academic transfers. Knox was a borderline qualifier to begin with out of HS, and the demands of academic life at Georgia might have proved too much to handle.
