Georgia Bulldogs senior defensive back Ameer Speed has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Speed started the first three games of the season at cornerback. National championship hero Kelee Ringo eventually took the vast majority of the playing time at outside cornerback opposite Clemson transfer Derion Kendrick.

Speed is a key special-teams player for Georgia. He played in 13 games for the Bulldogs in 2021 and recorded 13 total tackles. Speed will look for more playing time at his transfer portal destination.

Speed came to Athens as a three-star prospect in the class of 2017. The 6-foot-3, 211-pound Jacksonville native has excellent length. He will be able to use the COVID-19 season to attain a sixth year of college football eligibility.

Ameer Speed thanked Georgia via Twitter upon entering the transfer portal:

Speed played as 11 games as a freshman in 2017. He redshirted in 2018, but appeared in a pair of games. In 2019, Speed played in 13 games. He recorded five tackles and was named co-winner of the special teams most improved player. In 2020, the former three-star recruit out of Sandalwood High School played in nine games and recorded one tackle.
