Georgia football podcast: Derion Kendrick says we ‘might hear something soon’ regarding transfer

Beginning of the show: Georgia needs experience at cornerback, and the biggest name at that position currently in the transfer portal is a former All-ACC performer at Clemson, Derion Kendrick.

Kendrick has been rumored to be linked to the Bulldogs, and many would view Kendrick as exactly the kind of player UGA needs. However, there are complicating factors to consider.

For instance, Kendrick is dealing with some legal trouble after being arrested in his home state of South Carolina in March, and there are lingering questions about why Kendrick is no longer with the Tigers.

Kendrick addressed these topics and more during a recent podcast interview with friends from his hometown, and I’ll share audio of what Kendrick said on today’s show.
