Deangelo Gibbs has officially transferred to Tennessee.
Reports surfaced Thursday night that the former Georgia DB would transfer to the SEC East rival. That news was confirmed Friday by Tennessee, who welcomed Gibbs on social media.
No doubt Gibbs is a great athlete. He played DB at Georgia, but he’s planning on changing to WR at Tennessee, a position that may better enhance his skills. Tennessee just needs playmakers on offense, and Gibbs could certainly help in that area. It’s expected that he’ll have to sit out the 2019 season due to the NCAA transfer rule.
Following his transfer, Gibbs released a statement on social media, thanking Georgia and expressing his excitement to be at Tennessee.
