ATHENS — A second Georgia player has entered the transfer portal following the team’s spring game, as wide receiver Tyler Williams entered the transfer portal.

Williams redshirted in his first year on campus after signing as a member of Georgia’s 2023 recruiting class out of Lakeland, Fla. He played in two games in 2023. Williams did not record a catch in Georgia’s spring game.

Georgia running back Andrew Paul announced he would enter the transfer portal on Monday.

With Williams entering the transfer portal, Georgia is now at 86 scholarship players for the upcoming season.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart spoke about the possibility of a player entering the transfer portal following Saturday’s spring game.

“Can I control it? I can’t,” Smart said. “If I concern myself with things I can’t control, I won’t live long. There’s just too much out there. It’s really one of those things of, ‘do you want to be here? Or do you not?’ Because they know how we do things by now. They all know. That was the easier practice we’ve had all spring. They enjoyed it thoroughly. Guys want to be somewhere else, I have no control over that.”

Williams becomes the 21st scholarship player from Georgia’s 2023 roster to enter the transfer portal.

Georgia brought in five wide receivers in the previous recruiting cycle, with three of them coming from the transfer portal. Colbie Young, Michael Jackson and London Humphreys all came to Georgia via the transfer portal, while the Bulldogs signed Sacovie White and Nitro Tuggle as a part of the 2024 signing class. Young and Jackson each have one year of eligibility left.

Williams was one of three wide receivers Georgia signed in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Of those signees, only Anthony Evans is still with the team. Georgia did bring in transfers Dominic Lovett and Rara Thomas in that cycle as well, with both receivers expected to play a significant role for Georgia this fall.

“I’m still trying to figure out what we’ve got. There’s young players that are talented,” Smart said of the wide receiver room. “Sacovie and Nitro are going to be good players. The portal guys are still coming along: Mike Jackson and London. Colbie has factored in and made some plays. Colbie’s made plays like that all spring. When you throw RaRa, Dillon, Arian, and Dom out there, it gives you, what they are is the bullies. They bully you on special teams. They lead, they show toughness.”

The spring transfer portal window will be open from April 16 to April 30th. Paul is from Dallas. Players cannot transfer to another SEC school, meaning Williams can not end up at Florida.
