Brent Benedict Not Giving Up Football After Leaving Georgia

Did Brent Benedict elect to leave the Georgia Bulldogs due to an injury that's harassed him since high school? Or is he, as has been rumored, not interested in participating in UGA football's new strength and conditioning program? 

Benedict and family would prefer not to specify, leaving his explanation for leaving as the nebulous "personal reasons" Mark Richt first announced. Benedict does say he hopes to play college football somewhere else.

Where might he end up? Out of high school, Benedict had offers from at least 15 other schools. If I may talk out my a--, keep an eye on Texas as well, the new home of Stacy Searels, who recruited Benedict to Georgia to begin with. Though as the big fella is from Jacksonville, many are going to keep an eye on a potential Florida transfer.
