Wednesday morning brings word of a relatively rare Group of Five-to-Group of Five player transfer.
According to KNOE-TV in Monroe, LA., John Gullatt has decided to transfer into Matt Viator‘s Louisiana-Monroe football program. The linebacker had been set to enter his true freshman season at Army.
The move is a homecoming for Gullatt as he played his high school football in West Monroe, although he has taken some flack with his return.
“I’m as motivated as ever,” Gullatt told the ABC affiliate. “I’ve got a lot of people doubting me coming back home from Army and (people saying) ‘You didn’t make it there. You are not going to make it here.’ I’m definitely ready to get started.”
Gullatt was a three-star member of Army’s 2018 recruiting class. He was one of four inside linebackers signed as part of the service academy’s most recent class.
