ATHENS — Georgia football has a surplus of talented defensive backs, 15 on scholarship, so it didn’t come as much of a surprise to see one of them enter into the transfer portal.

Divaad Wilson, a 6-0, 195-pound redshirt sophomore from Miami, Fla., announced Monday on Twitter he’s entering his name into the transfer portal to be closer to home.
