Logan Gray to transfer from Georgia

Posted by Tom Fornelli

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.

Kentucky's Mossakowski to transfer

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Here's a story that may temper your excitement or frustration with signing day tomorrow. It's important to remember that there are no sure things in college football. For instance, Ryan Mossakowski was a four-star recruit at quarterback out of Texas who chose to sign with Kentucky a few years ago. He then had to have surgery to repair the labrum in his throwing shoulder following high school, and redshirted his first season in Lexington.

Mossakowski then spent 2010 at third on the Kentucky depth chart behind Mike Hartline and Morgan Newton, and only saw time in mop-up duty this season, never getting the chance to throw a pass. Now, after coming to Kentucky with so much promise, Mossakowski has announced he'll be transferring from the school.

"This is something I've been thinking about for a while, even before the bowl game,"said Mossakowski. "I talked with the coaches and they said the job would be open in the spring and I'd have a chance to compete. I just had to make the decision that I thought was best for me. I really have to go somewhere where I know there's a 100 percent chance I'd get on the field.

"I have total respect for the coaching staff, and I'll still be good friends with all the players. I've really enjoyed it here. I just want to be somewhere where I know I'll get on the field."

Mossakowski says he's talked to his father and high school coach about some possible destinations, but he hasn't put together any kind of list.
