Georgia DB Green to transfer, hopes to play RB

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Georgia coach Mark Richt says sophomore safety J.J. Green plans to transfer to another school.

Green played at tailback in 2013 before moving to defense. Richt said Tuesday that Green wants to find a school where he can play running back.

Green played in eight games, including one start, and had nine tackles this season for No. 15 Georgia. He played in 13 games at tailback last season and had 384 yards rushing with three touchdowns. He also had 12 catches for 104 yards.

On Monday, Georgia announced sophomore cornerback Brendan Langley will transfer. Richt says Langley is seeking an opportunity for increased playing time.

Langley had four tackles in three games, including one start, this season.
