Wednesday may be signing day, but apparently Tuesday is "Former Four-Star Quarterbacks Transferring Day." Earlier on Tuesday the news broke that Ryan Mossakowski was leaving Kentucky, and now Georgia quarterback-turned-wide receiver Logan Gray has announced that he'll be leaving Athens following his graduation this spring.
"I will graduate in May from UGA with my degree in Speech Communication,” said Gray in a statement. “I plan on playing my last year of football while pursuing my Master's degree at another school, most likely close to home, where my family can attend all of my games. I would like to thank Coach Richt for giving me the opportunity to be a Bulldog the last four years, and sticking beside me throughout the whole experience. I would also like to thank my teammates for everything. They are like another family to me and I know I will be close with several of them for the rest of my life."
“I want to express sincere appreciation to Logan for his many contributions to our program the last four years,” said Mark Richt. “He’s been an asset to our team and program as both a player and student and we wish him nothing but the very best.”
Gray came to Athens as a four-star recruit, and after redshirting in 2007, spent 2008 and 2009 as a reserve. After losing the quarterback battle to Aaron Murray last spring, Gray moved to wide receiver where he caught 9 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown for the Bulldogs in 2010.
