Carroll signed with Georgia as a 4-star prospect in the 2021 signing class. He is the first player from said class to transfer out of the program. Carroll was at one point a South Carolina commit in the recruiting process. He is originally from Warrenton, Ga., before finishing his high school career at IMG Academy.
Carroll played in four games last season and will be immediately eligble at South Carolina to play for Shane Beamer. The Gamecocks have been aggressive in using the transfer portal, landing players such as former Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler.
Georgia and South Carolina play each other on Sept. 17 in Columbia, S.C., next season. Georgia will also face Jalen Kimber and Justin Robinson, with the former playing for Florida and the latter suiting up for Mississippi State.
As it stands right now, the only player from Georgia who has not found a new home is JT Daniels. The former Georgia quarterback entered the portal last week.
The Carroll news comes a day after Latavious Brini announced he would be playing for Arkansas and Jermaine Burton announced his transfer to Alabama.
Georgia has not had anyone transfer into the program as of yet, though that isn’t surprising given Kirby Smart’s usage of the transfer portal in the past. Tykee Smith, Derion Kendrick and Arik Gilbert were all summer arrivals to the program last offseason.
The Bulldogs are also likely to see further transfer portal attrition from their team but that will likely not come until after spring practice.
