Georgia tight end Luke Ford announced he is transferring to Illinois.

Georgia saw one of its tight ends declare for the NFL draft in Isaac Nauta and one of its players transfer to a Big Ten school, as Justin Fields is heading to Ohio State. And now Georgia tight end Luke Ford is also leaving the program, as he is headed to Illinois.

Ford announced the decision on his Twitter feed on Friday afternoon. The freshman tight end had previously told DawgNation that his grandparents’ health was the reason he put his name into the Transfer Portal in December.
