Chris Sanders Headed To Georgia Military College, Hopeful For Return To Athens

Dismissed former Bulldogs defensive back Chris Sanders is headed to Georgia Military College for the next six months and has an eye on an eventual return to Athens. Sanders was dismissed from the team last week along with teammates Nick Marshall and Sanford Seay.

What led to Sanders' dismissal seems to be unrelated to that of Marshall and Seay and at least on the surface, it seems possible that he could find his way back to Athens once his stint at GMC is over.

"Of course Coach Richt was disappointed," Sanders said of his infraction. "He asked me what happened, and I explained to him what happened. Of course he felt bad, and I felt bad. But I was honest with him."

Mark Richt hasn't said one way or the other whether or not Sanders would be welcomed back to the program but it wouldn't be the first time that a player ended up at GMC and then returned to the Bulldogs. Former standout linebacker Odell Thurman went on to good two-year career with the Bulldogs after a stint at GMC.

Former Georgia Player Nick Marshall Enrolls At Kansas Community College

The Georgia secondary took a huge hit when head coach Mark Richt dismissed three players - two defensive backs - from the 2011 signing class - but now one former Bulldog corner will have a shot a quarterback in junior college. Nick Marshall will transfer to Garden City Community College in Kansas, according to a report by Albany, Georgia's WALB TV.

The report quotes Marshall's high school coach, Wilcox County's Mark Ledford, that Marshall will get a shot to play quarterback at Garden City, a position he played in high school. The departure of Marshall and fellow DB Chris Sanders will create depth concerns for the Bulldogs, who return 10 starters on defense but lose corner and return specialist Brandon Boykin to the NFL Draft. Starting corner Sanders Commings might be facing a suspension after his arrest on domestic violence charges.

Could Three Dismissed Georgia Bulldogs Next Stop At Georgia Military College?

Earlier this week it was announced that three Georgia Bulldogs freshman football players had been dismissed from the football team for a "violation of team rules," per a university statement. Chris Sanders, Nick Marshall and Sanford Seay will all be taking their football talents elsewhere, and one possible opportunity for many players for discharged Bulldogs players is Georgia Military College.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt gave a ring to GMC head coach Bert Williams,as Richt gave Williams the scoop about his three players seemingly as a courtesy.

"There’s one that we will not pursue," Williams said. "There’s one we may or may not pursue. And there’s one that I definitely will pursue."

Should any of the three players decide to play at GMC, its possible that Richt could reign them back in and re-join the Bulldogs in Athens.

Chris Sanders Dismissed By Georgia Along With Nick Marshall, Sanford Seay

Three University of Georgia freshman football players have been dismissed from the football team for a "violation of team rules," according to a statement released by the university. Freshman defensive back Chris Sanders from Tucker, Georgia, is the third named player to be dismissed.

As previously reported, freshman cornerback Nick Marshall and freshman wide receiver Sanford Seay were let go from the team. Fox5 in Atlanta reported that the pair was dismissed for their role in the theft of $500 worth of money and valuables from another Georgia player. The Athens Banner-Herald is reporting that Sanders' dismissal may or may not be related to this incident, or stem from unrelated circumstances.

Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt released the following statement:

"It’s a privilege to play college football and to be a part of this team and University. Along with that privilege comes certain responsibilities. Mistakes were made and part of our job is helping them learn from mistakes. Going forward, we are committed to assisting them find opportunities where they can continue their education."

Sanders played in three games as a true freshman in the 2011 season, recording tackles against Coastal Carolina and Boise State. Of the three freshmen, Marshall saw the most time at Georgia, playing in 13 games last season, while Seay was redshirted and unlikely to see much (if any) time at receiver in 2012.
