ATHENS — A few days ago, coveted defensive tackle transfer Breiden Fehoko visited Georgia’s football practice and was shown around Athens. It didn’t turn out to be enough to change his mind.
Fehoko announced Monday afternoon that he would be going to LSU, choosing those Tigers over Georgia, Auburn and others. Fehoko, who left Texas Tech earlier this year, will have 2 years of eligibility remaining.

Georgia, which hosted Fehoko and his family at practice last Thursday, will have to look elsewhere for defensive line help. The Bulldogs don’t necessarily need it this year — and Fehoko can’t play this year, per NCAA transfer rules. But with John Atkins a senior, and 3 other key linemen being draft-eligible (Trent Thompson, Jonathan Ledbetter, DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle), and only 2 signees this year, the Bulldogs are in the market for help.
