Georgia Will 'Explore' Penn State Transfers, Says Mark Richt

Penn State players can transfer without having to sit out a year. And with Mark Richt's Georgia squad under the NCAA's scholarship limit, Nittany Lions may become Bulldogs before long. Richt said at a booster meeting Monday night that Georgia will look into the possibility of accepting Penn State transfers, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jeff Schultz.

"We do have some space available and if somebody fits a need and they’re excited about coming we would look into that possibility," he said at the Cobb Galleria Centre. "There may not be anybody. But we’re at least going to explore. … I don’t want people to think we’re trying to load up a bunch of them. It could be zero, it could be one or two."

Richt could be in search of a running back. Or a defensive back. Or ... well, Steve Spurrier could probably tell you more.
