Strickland to Graduate; Leave Early

ATHENS – Tanner Strickland won’t return to the Georgia football team this fall.

The Nashville, GA native told Dawg Post Wednesday morning that he will graduate in May, and that a nagging shoulder injury which cost him the 2009 season has become too much of a burden to continue dealing with.

“I decided to walk away from it because of all of the trouble with my shoulder,” Strickland said. “I think it is my best interest to walk away.”

Strickland played in all 13 of Georgia’s 2010 games – starting three times.

“I wish I could have stayed healthy and played more, but it didn’t work out,” he said. “I’ve got one class left before graduating in May.”

Strickland was a part of Georgia’s class of 2007, but he committed to the Bulldogs nearly two years before signing with them in August of 2005.
