Jakar Hamilton Announces Transfer

Earlier this afternoon, Jakar Hamilton announced via Twitter that he was transferring due to needing "a fresh start." Hamilton, who was injured with a broken ankle and was expected to redshirt this year, would have been a redshirt senior next year. Hamilton played in all 13 games in 2010, totaling up 27 tackles and an interception. He was a JUCO transfer in the 2010 recruiting class, coming over from Georgia Military College.

Hamilton stated to the AJC that Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams were playing well this year, which makes one assume he thought the chance for playing time next year was going to be very slim. He also said that he met with Coach Mark Richt and both agreed that the fresh start was a good idea. Hamilton says that at the moment, he hasn't made a decision on where he'll be transferring, but indicated it would be an FCS school.

So what does the transfer mean in the bigger picture? Well, as we have been reminded all too often this season, depth isn't exactly a strong suit anywhere on Georgia's team, but Hamilton wasn't going to be on the field in 2011, so it's a wash in that area.

On a positive note, it speaks volumes towards the development of the Bulldog Secondary, and more specifically, guys like Corey Moore and Nick Marshall. It also indirectly confirms that Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams look to be the starting Safety tandem at least until the end of 2012.
