Brice Ramsey Returning to UGA

ATHENS - Brice Ramsey will return to UGA for his final year of college football.

UGA and Ramsey had announced earlier in the spring that he intended to transfer. Multiple sources say that Ramsey was at a UGA football meeting on Thursday, and that he has decided to stay at UGA for graduate school. 

UGA coach Kirby Smart said earlier this week that he had been recruiting the former four-star prospect to stay at Georgia. 

“I am actively been; been trying to recruiting Brice,” Kirby told reporters on Tuesday. “As is stands right now he is still looking around. We should have some more clarity on that in the next couple of weeks.”

Ramsey had met with a slew of schools including Southern Miss and Costal Carolina since leaving the program. But he still hung around Athens enough to participate in parts of the Bulldogs’ spring practices.

The move means UGA will enter fall camp with three scholarship quarterbacks - just like last fall. But it means Georgia now has some flexibility at the backup signal caller spot. Jake Fromm, who is a five-star prospect who enrolled earlier this year, no longer has to serve as an emergency quarterback. Ramsey’s return means a redshirt is most certainly on the table for Fromm this fall. 

If that were to happen, that would give Fromm and Eason two years of separation in eligibility - something insiders say Kirby has been itching for since Fromm signed in December. Ramsey's return also means that if every signee enrolls and there are no further transfers, that the Bulldogs are at the 85-mark for scholarship players heading into the fall.
