Little Leaving Georgia

ATHENS – Georgia offensive lineman Chris Little was already lost for the year with a broken foot, but head coach Mark Richt announced Thursday the former Twiggs County player was leaving the school for good.

Richt said Little informed him earlier in the week of his desire to transfer and said the redshirt freshman had been given a release to transfer to another school.

"He just felt like it was time to move on," Richt said. "It wasn't working out as well as he wanted it to. He wanted to move in another direction."

Little broke his foot in August, but was already buried deep on Georgia's offensive line depth chart. With all five starters on the current Bulldogs line, it wasn't likely Little would break into the starting lineup next season.

"It's just a situation of wanting to get a fresh start I think," Richt said. "I talked to him and his father about it, and we'll help him find a place if he needs help, but I think he's already got that ball rolling a little."

Richt said there were no off-field incidents that led to Little's decision, which comes just two weeks after the coach announced wide receiver Walter Hill and defensive back Donavon Baldwin had both left the program following violations of team rules.

Richt said no final decisions had been made by Hill or Baldwin on where they would transfer.

"I know Coach (Rodney) Garner was helping Donavon, and I've heard a couple of rumors as to where Walter is interested, but I don't want to cause anything without knowing for sure," Richt said.
