It appears the quarterback farm club known otherwise as Georgia Football is close to placing another of its products, and he could be placed close by.

Said Georgia head coach Mark Richt about Park’s decision to leave the Georgia program as reported by Matt Zenits of “I can understand his decision, and we’ll support him in finding a good fit at another institution.”

Regarding a “good fit”, I doubt Coach Richt had Alabama in mind. But just as the Bulldogs faced Zach Mettenburger – the hometown boy forced to leave Georgia only to return to Athens and lead LSU in one of the most scintillating Sanford Stadium games of the Twenty-First Century – the Dawgs could once again face an offense led by a former Bulldog.

Park, an exceptionally gifted quarterback, left Georgia after looking for a place to re-start his college career. Park will have three years of eligibility after sitting a season in the NCAA’s punishment corner for leaving one school and attending another.

Other destinations remain possible, although the assumed front-runner, Colorado State, now led by the former Georgia offensive coordinator who recruited Park, Mike Bobo, appears unlikely. Chip Towers surveyed the CSU quarterback situation for the

“[Colorado State] got some pretty good performances out of their two young signal-callers in the spring game. Redshirt sophomore Nick Stevens threw for 438 yards and four touchdowns and redshirt freshman Coleman Key added 337 yards and another two scores.And Colorado State already has a quarterback from South Carolina on the way. Collin Hill (6-4, 205) of Roebuck, S.C. High committed to the Rams last month.”

Towers noted that Virginia Tech is a possible transfer destination for Park.

At Alabama, Park would again face steep competition. With Florida State transfer Jacob Coker, redshirt freshman David Cornwell, Cooper Bateman, and Blake Barnett all at quarterback, one wonders if Park can find an opportunity. But the quarterback that will not be at Alabama may be the reason Park ends up in Tuscaloosa. The number one 2016 prep quarterback recruit in the country has committed to Georgia, Jacob Eason.

It seems unlikely Park will end up at Alabama, but sharing his visit plans with Joe Schad is the only information Park has released about his current recruitment. And it’s Alabama.
