Quarterback Greyson Lambert transfers from Virginia to Georgia

Quarterback Greyson Lambert, who announced last month that he would transfer from Virginia, said Wednesday in a text message to ESPN.com that he is bound for Georgia.

Lambert is a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining and can play right away in the 2015 season.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Lambert was one of four team captains for the Cavaliers last season, when he threw for 1,632 yards with 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He added two rushing touchdowns.

Lambert is a native of Jesup, Georgia, and played at Wayne County High School.

Georgia quarterbacks Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta and Jacob Park competed throughout the spring, and now Lambert will join the mix.
