Austin Kirksey plans to come home and be a Bulldog.
It means that freshman receiver Dominick Blaylock will be catching a familiar spiral during fall drills in 2020. It also means UGA will get some much-needed depth for the QB room, too.
He is expected to leave Nevada at the end of this semester.
Nevada coach Chris Norvell was quoted by Chris Murray of Nevada Sports Net about the move.
“He’s going to move back to Georgia to be close to his family,” Norvell said. “Really sad to see him go. What a great kid. He’s like a straight-A student, an awesome young man and very close to his family. A great family. We’re sad to see him go, but I certainly understand him wanting to be closer to his family.”
Kirksey threw for 4,864 yards at Walton from 2016-2018. He carried at 3.4 grade-point average during his high school days, too.
