Former UAB linebacker and leading tackler Jake Ganus has committed to transfer to UGA. Disbanding the UAB football program put a lot of quality players in a tight spot. After playing with his brothers at UAB, Jake Ganus suddenly found himself without a team. He looked to UGA for the solution.
Losing Armalo Herrera and Ramik Wilson after this year puts UGA in a situation where A LOT of young guys will have to play early at the two inside linebacker positions. It’s a no-brainer to bring in a D1 player with experience and especially on that led his team in tackles the previous year. Ganus had 70 tackles, 16.5 TFL, 6 sacks, and a fumble recovery that he returned 56 yards for a TD his junior year. Jake tells us that he can enroll early and not count against one of UGA’s coveted EE spots. Obviously, he will count against the 85 man limit. Jake was also being heavily recruited by Marshall.
Best case scenario, and what Jake will be striving for, is having Ganus come in and earn a starting job at one of the ILB spots. Worst case scenario is Jake provides quality depth at a thin position, earns a spot on special teams, and becomes a senior leader of a young position group. Either way, join us in welcoming the newest Georgia Bulldawg! Welcome Jake Ganus!!! DAWGSONTOP
