Former Georgia DB transferring to Louisville
Former Georgia Bulldogs defensive back Marcus Washington Jr. is transferring to Louisville. Washington is a former four-star recruit. He is the son of former Georgia defender Marcus Washington.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound defensive back played in one game last season and recorded one tackle. Washington has the ability to start at the Power Five level. However, he is likely looking for more playing time at Louisville.
Georgia is expected to start Daylen Everette, Tykee Smith and Kamari Lassiter at cornerback this season. The Bulldogs lose a key depth piece with Washington’s transfer, but they have recruited the defensive back position at an elite level in recent seasons.
