Blog: Tight end to transfer from Georgia

Tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith is set to transfer from Georgia, a team spokesman confirmed Wednesday night.

The rising sophomore from Moultrie played eight games last season without a catch.

Coach Mark Richt said Wednesday night before an appearance at UGA Days in Statesboro that Flournoy-Smith will likely go to a junior college and has talked to Georgia Military College, according to Dawgs247.

Richt said he could return to Georgia.

“Possibly,” he said. “That could happen.”

Flournoy-Smith was arrested in February for the misdemeanor charge of filing a false report of a crime. He pleaded not guilty April 17 to the charge. University police said Flournoy-Smith reported three textbooks valued at $225 were stolen when he actually resold them to a local buyback store.

Georgia will lose tight end Arthur Lynch after this season, but has sophomore Jay Rome and incoming freshman Jordan Davis at the position and a commitment from top 2014 tight end prospect Jeb Blazevich from Charlotte, N.C.
