A little over nine months after rumors first surfaced — and were later confirmed — that Logan Gray was considering a transfer from Georgia, the quarterback-turned-wide receiver has indeed pulled the trigger on a transfer.
Gray confirmed today via a statement Tuesday that he is leaving the UGA football program and will pursue his Master’s degree at a school closer to his home of Columbia, Missouri.
“I will graduate in May from UGA with my degree in Speech Communication,” said Gray. “I plan on playing my last year of football while pursuing my Master’s degree at another school, most likely close to home, where my family can attend all of my games. I would like to thank Coach Richt for giving me the opportunity to be a Bulldog the last four years, and sticking beside me throughout the whole experience. I would also like to thank my teammates for everything. They are like another family to me and I know I will be close with several of them for the rest of my life.”
“I want to express sincere appreciation to Logan for his many contributions to our program the last four years,” said head coach Mark Richt. “He’s been an asset to our team and program as both a player and student and we wish him nothing but the very best.”
Gray, a four-start recruit coming out of high school, was in a three-way battle for the starting quarterback job last spring that ultimately was won by Aaron Murray, and Gray was subsequently moved to receiver. He played in all 13 games in 2010, and finished with nine receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown.
There’s no word on where he may ultimately land.
