UGA confirmed late yesterday what had been rumored on message boards, Georgia
safety inside LB Nick Williams has been granted permission to transfer to another school. Since he didn't redshirt, he can go to an FBS school with a year of eligibility remaining.
Williams had grown openly frustrated with repeated position moves this season as well as a hamstring pull. Grantham seemed to favor Ogletree at safety, which prompted the move to inside linebacker. For a player who's seen Kiante Tripp move more than a pack of gypsies, hard to blame Williams for his decision. Even though he eventually came around to the switch to ILB, he evidently doesn't feel like his future is there...or in Athens.
I had the privilege of meeting several players at Countdown to Kickoff back in August. None impressed me more than Nick Williams. I wish him well...and hope we don't have to face him.
