2012 UGA Football Preseason: More On Potential Penn State Transfers

While speaking at "UGA Day" at the Cobb Galleria Centre on Monday head coach Mark Richt talked briefly about the sanctions handed down on Penn State and indicated that the Bulldogs, like many teams around the country, would be interested in some of those players.

"A lot of colleges around the country certainly will be interested in some of those players," Richt said, "and we're one of those teams. It's pretty well-documented that we're under our 85 number right now. We'll try to get in touch with some of these young men and see what their interest is."

Among players currently on Penn State's roster Deion Barnes and Khari Fortt took official visits to Athens during recruiting. The interest could extend beyond the Nittany Lions current roster as current commitments Garrett Sickels and Adam Breneman have reportedly been offered scholarships by the Bulldogs.

With the Bulldogs well below the 85 scholarship player limit they certainly have the ability to add players. However, Richt cautioned that nothing was imminent but they would definitely explore the situation to see if there was a fit.
