5 biggest losses for Georgia in the transfer portal

The Georgia Bulldogs have one of the best rosters in the country, but that roster lost 20 players to the transfer portal this offseason. No loss can break the Bulldogs, but these five losses will hurt.

Sorey is the other Georgia linebacker with recent starting experience who is departing from Athens. He started twice in 2023 and is headed to Arkansas where he’ll certainly take on a much bigger role.

Across his three seasons at Georgia, Sorey amassed 24 tackles, a sack, and one pass breakup. He is far from an essential part of the Bulldogs' defense, but he is an experienced piece who could spell the young linebackers if they’re struggling early in the season. 

Georgia will be better off for undergoing a rebuild at linebacker, especially with Williams who is going to soon be one of the best players on the entire defense. Sorey is an acceptable loss, but on a roster like Georgia’s, there aren’t many losses that would knock the team out of contention.
