Brandon Boykin, the experienced junior CB out of Fayette County HS, announced that he will return for his senior season in Athens.
This is very good news for the Georgia Bulldogs defense who will likely lose their two two tacklers from last season. The 5-10, 183 lbs. Boykin has 24 career starts at corner and is a home run threat on kick returns. He will return as the reigning kick returner in UGA history with 1813 yards. His three career 100-yard kickoff returns make him the only player in SEC history with three 100-yard plays of any kind.
"After meeting with my family and coaches, I was able to put a lot of things into perspective," Boykin said in a statement. "First of all, I want to be part of getting Georgia back into the championship hunt. Coming back will also give me a chance to get my degree before entering the draft, and another year of experience will only make me a better player as well."
