Former Georgia offensive lineman Pat Allen has made his decision on life after the Bulldogs.
After announcing last month that he intended to transfer from the Georgia football program, Allen took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to announce he will be transferring to Southeastern Louisiana. Allen’s Twitter account is private, but The Athletic’s Seth Emerson confirmed the news.
Allen presumably will be eligible to play immediately due to the step down from FBS to FCS competition. Southeastern Louisiana, located in Hammond, La., competes in the Southland Conference. The Lions went 6-5 last season, including a narrow 51-48 miss against FBS school Louisiana-Lafayette during Week 1.
Southeastern Louisiana has LSU on its schedule this fall, with a trip to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge planned for Week 2.
Allen is a former starter on the Bulldogs’ line, drawing the assignment of starting left guard to begin the 2017 season. But as the season, which included an SEC championship, Rose Bowl win and College Football Playoff title game appearance, went on, he was passed on the depth chart by Kendall Baker. He appeared in just six games.
After redshirting for the 2015 season and seeing limited action in 2016, Allen should have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
