As the school year winds down, it is certainly not uncommon to see some player movement in college football, and the Georgia Bulldogs have announced that a recruit from the class of 2013 will transfer in the coming days.

Linebacker Paris Bostick, who took a redshirt in his freshman season, will transfer from the university, and it is being reported as the two sides coming to a “mutual decision” that the young man should transfer. Bostick wasn’t exactly a premium recruit for Mark Richt and company, as he was rated as a 3-star safety by all three of the major recruiting outlets (ESPN, Rivals, Scout), but you never want to see a defection like this.

Still, this isn’t a crippling blow to the two-deep for 2014 or, frankly, the future plans for Jeremy Pruitt and his defense, and it should not be something that Bulldog Nation overreacts to in the wake of the announcement. Bostick could be a candidate to land at a lower-tier program or perhaps an FCS school, should he want to play right away, and we wish him the best wherever he lands in continuing his playing career.
