Park Annouces He's Leaving Dawgs

Jacob Park, who entered a three-man race to start at Georgia this spring, is transferring from Georgia.

The former four-star quarterback announced on Facebook Tuesday evening that he is no longer a part of the Bulldogs:

“I just want to say thank (you) Dawg Nation and everyone else who made my stay in Athens special," he said. "Never will forget the people and friends. Time to move on and turn the page to the next chapter. Go Dawgs."

Earlier in the day Tuesday Park was seen cleaning out his locker room after a pass skeleton practice at Georgia.

“He had folded up all of his stuff,” said one.

“There were no cleats left his his locker,” another added.

The news comes after weeks of quarterback transfer news. Former Notre Dame QB Everett Golson visited Georgia, but decided to enroll at Florida State. It is unclear if Golson had an offer to play at Georgia or not. Then former Virginia QB Greyson Lambert visited and eventually transferred to Georgia last week.

Insiders say the Bulldogs' coaching staff have feared that a quarterback, specifically Park, would transfer before the season started. The move to accept Lambert as a transfer, some have said, is as much about adding depth at quarterback as anything else. With Park gone, the Bulldogs only have two scholarship quarterbacks for passing in the summer as Lambert will not arrive in Athens until late July.

Coach Mark Richt said last month that he felt all three of the signal callers on campus for spring practice had a chance to win the job and succeed on the field. But Park struggled to find snaps this fall with Ramsey lining up with the No. 1 unit much of the spring and Bauta with the No. 2 unit. Those two took many of the first team snaps in the spring while Park practiced primarily with the No. 3 unit. Insiders say that Ramsey, who had moved in front of Bauta on the depth chart some time after spring 2014, is the clear front runner to be the starting quarterback this fall - even with Lambert transferring in.
