In an attempt to bolster its offensive line depth, UGA will add a transfer from Savannah State.
Sean Fogarty, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound offensive lineman, plans to transfer to the Bulldogs as a walk-on at the conclusion of the spring semester, according to 247Sports’ Jake Rowe.
Fogarty is expected to join the team in May after playing at right tackle as a redshirt freshman last season. However, it is unclear if he will be eligible to play next season, according to the report.
“If I don’t get my waiver, I’ll embrace whatever comes. I’ll play scout team for a year and embrace it. We’re trying to work the waiver out,” Fogarty told UGASports.com’s Jake Reuse. “There are some personal things, but it’s not Savannah State. They’ve been good to me. It’s just that it’s hard being here for my whole life, so hopefully, the NCAA can find it in their hearts to make me eligible. I’d have three years if I get the waiver.”
The addition of Fogarty would give UGA six new offensive linemen on its roster for 2016, including walk-on Allen Williams, graduate transfer Tyler Catalina and signees Chris Barnes, Solomon Kindley and Ben Cleveland.
