Sure, the NCAA now allows the transfers of Brandon Turnage from Alabama and Arik Gilbert from LSU, but that still leaves Georgia in need of the SEC’s blessing. At this moment, there remains an intra-conference ban on the books that would require both to sit a year before being allowed to play in Athens.
However, Mark Schlabach reports that SEC chancellors and presidents are expected to vote whether to change the rule on Thursday. Barrett Sallee confirms that such a vote is expected this week and that a change is expected to pass.
So, watch for that — and be glad that it isn’t Greg McGarity representing Georgia’s interests this week.
