Jake Ganus: Transfer Worth It

ATHENS - Jake Ganus landed at Georgia after UAB disbanded its football program at the end of last season.

The inside linebacker is happy that the school decided in June to revive the program for the 2017 season, but what turned out to be a premature end to his time there gave him a chance he is grateful for in Athens.

“I didn’t go to UAB and say I’m going to play three years and do real good and transfer,” Ganus said. “That wasn’t my mindset but it worked out like that. In the football standpoint, it worked out the best it could have for me. For some of the other guys, probably not so much. For me, it definitely did.”

Another UAB player who transferred, kicker Nick Vogel, is back at the school to play for coach Bill Clark after leaving Southern Miss.

“It sends a good message that people do want to go play there,” Ganus said. “Hopefully he can reel in some more good players and recruits and hopefully they can build that thing up and win football games.”

Ganus is working mostly with the second team, but sees “a core group of linebackers that can rotate in with the ones and twos at any time.”
