Just last month, it was discovered that Georgia safety Jakar Hamilton had two stress fractures in his foot, an injury that he had reportedly been dealing with for much of preseason camp. The injury was expected to sideline Hamilton for the year.
However, it doesn’t appear that the Bulldogs will be getting Hamilton back, who was utilizing a redshirt this season.
Hamilton confirmed to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that both he and head coach Mark Richt decided it was in the best interest of both sides to part ways.
“It’s just personal issues, really. I was hurt and wasn’t going to be able to play this season and I just played it all out in my mind. [Bacarri] Rambo is having a good season, Shawn Williams is having a good season and they both have another year. And other guys are coming in.
“I just felt like I needed a new start and start fresh with another team.”
Who that team will be at this point is unclear, but it looks like because of Hamilton’s limited time that a transfer to a Division 1-AA program is likely in the cards.
