ATHENS – Corvey Irvin isn’t ready to leave Georgia yet.

The senior defensive tackle who transferred to Georgia from Georgia Military College last year said he feels like he just arrived in Athens and would like to accomplish a lot more before leaving.

“I wish I had another year to come back next year and play again,” Irvin said. “I’ve got some good experience under my belt, I know what I’m doing, I know what it takes. I’d really shock some people if I had another year.”

Irvin has already surprised some people with his play this season. After senior Jeff Owens went down with a season-ending knee injury in Georgia’s opener, Irvin stepped into a starting role and has excelled throughout the season.

Now, instead of simply moving on to a life outside of football, his experience this year has his thinking about making it at the next level.

“I got invited to the Senior Bowl, so I’ll go there, work hard, train and do my thing there,” Irvin said. “Hopefully I get a shot at the next level and continue my football career.”
