Marc Deas Will Return To Georgia In 2012 Season

At the end of March, there were rumblings that Georgia Bulldogs defensive back Marc Deas would be seeking a transfer away from Georgia. Now it appears that the mini-crisis has been averted.

Chip Towers at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Tuesday that Deas will in fact be returning to the school for the upcoming 2012 season and will not look for a transfer. Towers received confirmation from Georgia spokesperson Claude Felton.

The redshirt sophomore hails from Kissimmee, FL. Early assumptions when news of the transfer came out were that Deas would be seeking to move to the Florida Gators, his favorite team for most of his life. If that was indeed Deas' plan, it has been put on hold for the time being.

Deas appeared in three games as a safety in 2011, picking up three tackles. The Bulldogs will almost certainly be showing him more playing time in 2012.
