After announcing last Thursday that he was transferring from the University of Georgia, redshirt sophomore linebacker Brandon Burrows has decided to remain with the Bulldogs.
The change of heart occurred after Burrows reasoned that he was unhappy as a linebacker in Todd Grantham's 3-4 scheme and wanted to play defensive end. The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder from Marietta committed to Georgia when Willie Martinez was defensive coordinator.
Burrows, who has yet to play a snap for the Bulldogs, is at least the third Georgia player in the last several months to depart before reversing field. Tailback Ken Malcome announced he was leaving last September but returned the next day, and reserve safety Marc Deas decided in April to remain several days after choosing to bolt.
