Georgia football sees first player enter the transfer portal ahead of College Football Playoff game

Georgia defensive lineman Bill Norton has entered the transfer portal, becoming the first Bulldog this season to do so.

Norton has played in all 13 games, though mostly as a special teams player. He has three tackles on the season.

Georgia signed Norton as a member of the 2019 class out of Memphis, Tenn.. He will have two seasons of eligibility left at whichever school he ultimately ends up.

What makes Norton’s decision unique here is that he elected to enter the portal before Georgia’s game against Ohio State in the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes have seen multiple players enter the transfer portal, while Michigan has already accepted a commitment from a player in the portal.

Last season, the bulldogs did not see a player enter the transfer portal until after the national championship game.

Georgia has offered two wide receivers in the transfer portal already. It is unclear whether Norton will remain practicing with the team throughout the remainder of the season.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart shared his thoughts on the transfer portal and how things will go for Georgia in navigating the roster management tool.
