Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs always have one of the best recruiting classes in the country. Not every player that signs with Georgia football sticks with the Bulldogs, however.
Georgia, which did not add a transfer this offseason, has had a number of talented players transfer away from the program. College football players typically transfer because they want more playing time or prefer to be closer to home. The Bulldogs have faced several of their transfers during the 2022 college football season.
