Georgia Lands Ex-Virginia QB Greyson Lambert

Not twenty-four hours after Georgia head coach Mark Richt confirmed the rumors that the team was recruiting Virginia Cavaliers graduate transfer Greyson Lambert, it was announced that quarterback would be returning to his home state.

This comes just after four-star ATH Mecole Hardman told the Bulldogs that the competition for the starting job would be over when Jacob Eason got to campus. Lambert may have just changed that.

The decision to transfer out of Charlottesville came after Lambert lost the starting job to Matt Johns during spring training sessions.

ESPN’s Joe Schad broke the news via Twitter.

Lambert started nine games for the Cavaliers last season and threw for over 1,600 yards and ten touchdowns and eleven interceptions while battling injury and splitting time with Johns. He is eligible to play immediately for the Bulldogs and has two years of eligibility left.

Georgia has already been picked to win the SEC East this season with returning running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel in the backfield. They may have just solidified the division with the addition of Lambert.
