Georgia announced on Friday that defensive end Derrick Lott has decided to transfer. Lott, a junior, left the program looking for more playing time elsewhere. He was behind Garrison Smith on the depth chart and with Ray Drew and Cornelius Washington also working out at defensive end, it became apparent early in spring practice that he would not see as much of the field as he would like and decided to move on. Georgia coach Mark Richt released a statement on Lott's decision:
"Derrick and I met and he believes he will have opportunities for more playing time elsewhere," head coach Mark Richt said in a statement. "We support him and will assist in any way possible during this process."
He finishes his career at Georgia playing only five games, registering just 10 tackles.
