After announcing last month that he was transferring from Virginia, Greyson Lambert has now decided to matriculate at Georgia. As a grad transfer, Lambert will be able to be play immediately for the Bulldogs next season. He will also have two years of eligibility left.
For a while now, it was speculated that Georgia was his preferred choice and on Wednesday, he made his decision official.
More from Seth Emerson of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“Yes sir. I’m coming to Georgia,” Lambert told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a text message.
Lambert visited Georgia over the weekend, then Florida on Monday. He informed Georgia coaches on Wednesday morning that he was coming.
This will, at least for now, bring Georgia up to four scholarship quarterbacks. Sophomore Brice Ramsey and junior Faton Bauta appeared to be in a close competition for the starting job after spring practice. Redshirt freshman Jacob Park has also been in the mix, according to coaches.
Lambert, who is from Jesup, Georgia, comes to Georgia after a season with Virginia where he struggled and had trouble with consistency. He threw for 1,632 yards and 10 touchdowns, but also throwing 11 interceptions. Lambert lost his starting job to Matt Jones at Virginia.
As you can see, the Georgia quarterback battle is far from finished and expect Lambert to get a good shot at claiming the job this summer.
