Georgia Bulldogs receiver Blake Tibbs to transfer

5/14/2015

There's another SEC transfer and this time it's not a quarterback. Georgia announced Wednesday that wide receiver Blake Tibbs is leaving the program and seeking a transfer.

"Blake and I have met and he has decided it would be in his best interest to transfer to another institution," Georgia coach Mark Richt said in a statement released by the school. "I certainly understand and wish him nothing but the best."

Tibbs, a three-star recruit coming out of high school, caught just four passes for 43 yards in his three seasons at Georgia. With fellow wide receivers Chris Conley and Michael Bennett having graduated and moved on, there was an opportunity for Tibbs this coming season, but he injured his shoulder the first week of spring practice and never returned.

The Bulldogs' lone upperclassmen at wide receiver are now Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley, but the latter didn't play at all last season due to suspension and injury.
