UGA announced this afternoon that offensive lineman A.J. harmon, who would have been a redshirt junior this season, is transferring.
Harmon is leaving for what the team termed "personal reasons." The native of Louisville, Ga., was academically ineligible for the Liberty Bowl.
He appeared to make a run at playing time in spring practice, spending some time on the first time at right tackle. But when he was asked about Harmon last week, head coach Mark Richt used the past tense: “We had him on our depth chart as the backup at both the left and right tackle.”
The (short) release from UGA:
ATHENS---------- University of Georgia junior offensive tackle A.J. Harmon will transfer to another institution for personal reasons according to an announcement Tuesday by UGA head coach Mark Richt.
A native of Louisville, Ga., Harmon was redshirted in 2008 and appeared in seven games over the past two seasons in an offensive line backup role.
