It was just last week that former three-star Virginia quarterback Greyson Lambert left the Cavliers and transferred back to his home state to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. Before Lambert arrived, it was unclear who would be the starting quarterback for the Dawgs in the fall.
Despite the quarterback competition still being wide open, four-star quarterback Jacob Park decided he would rather continue his college career elsewhere.
Park was granted a release from the program and will transfer before the season starts.
According to Dawgs247, Park, along with Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta, were the three quarterbacks competing for the job in the spring. Although Park was pinned as the strongest of the three to take the starting job, he received fewer first-team snaps than the other two in scrimmages.
The competition just got stiffer once Lambert arrived and Park made the decision to transfer Tuesday evening.
It is unclear where Park will end up, but I’m sure his decision will come sooner rather than later and wherever he lands will be lucky to have a talent like him. As for Georgia, neither Bauta or Ramsey have appeared as the front-runner for the starting job, but Lambert hasn’t locked it up either.
Lambert has the most experience of the three, but playing in the SEC is much different from playing in the ACC.
The battle for the starting position in Athens just got a little less hazy, but I’m not even sure if it will be cleared up by the time September rolls around.
