Brandon Burrows Transferring From Georgia, Granted Unconditional Release

Sophomore linebacker Brandon Burrows will transfer and has been granted an unconditional release by Georgia according to a release by the school. Burrows cited a chance for more playing time and a desire to return to playing defensive end in a 4-3 scheme as reasoning for the move.

"The coaching change here led to a 3-4 defense," Burrows said in a news release. "I have worked with that transition but decided that I want to get back to playing defensive end. I think another program may give me the best opportunity to succeed at that."

Burrows redshirted his freshman season and sat out all of 2011 with a shoulder injury. He was currently listed as third team inside linebacker on Georgia's preseason depth chart.

Roster attrition for the Bulldogs has been a hot topic of late with the Georgia well below the 85 scholarship limit. The Bulldogs are expected to sign a large recruiting class this season to help offset the total number.
