Blog: LB Bostick to transfer

Georgia and redshirt freshman inside linebacker Paris Bostick are parting ways.

The school announced Thursday that Bostick is transferring without ever having played in a game.

“After discussing the situation with Paris, we mutually agreed this is a good decision,” coach Mark Richt said in a statement. “He has a positive future in football and we wish him all the best in attaining his goals in football and in education.”

Bostick came from Plant High School in Tampa, Fla., the same school that produced former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murrray and tight end Orson Charles.

He sat out last season after undergoing toe surgery in the summer and moved to inside linebacker from safety during practices last fall. He was limited to running in practice this spring due to a hyperextended knee.

Asked Tuesday about Bostick, inside linebackers coach Mike Ekeler said he “hasn’t done anything. He’s been hurt.”

Defensive coorindator Jeremy Pruitt said Thursday night that he didn’t speak to Bostick about his decision, but “obviously he was concerned with playing time. Paris didn’t do anything but work hard while he was here, went to class and did everything we asked of him. He just wanted to find a different place.”
