Justin Fields isn’t the only player transferring from the Georgia Bulldogs.

Fellow freshman Luke Ford announced on Friday that he intends to transfer to the Illinois Fighting Illini. Ford made the announcement via Twitter.

Ford had one reception for four yards in the game against Austin Peay earlier this season.

The circumstances for Ford’s transfer a bit more somber than those of Fields’. Ford wrote above that his grandparents are in ailing health and he is going to UofI in order to be closer to him.

Obviously, that’s extremely unfortunate and we no doubt hope the best for him and his family.
