Georgia QB Jamie Newman opts out of season over coronavirus concerns

Georgia QB Jamie Newman opts out of season over coronavirus concerns”

Thamel wrote in a tweet that Newman is expected to begin training for the 2021 NFL Draft. Then again, pretty much everything is unclear right now when it comes to the connection between the 2020 college season and the 2021 draft.

Listed at 6-4, 230 pounds, Newman threw for 2,868 yards and 26 touchdowns for the Demon Deacons last season, with just 11 interceptions. Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken lauded Newman for his dual-threat abilities, and added that he's a "better thrower than people think". The graduate transfer from Wake Forest departs the school without ever playing a snap for the Bulldogs. "Certainly we wish him nothing but the best in his quest for an National Football League career and he knows he will always have a home at UGA".

Next in line at quarterback for Georgia appears to be USC transfer JT Daniels, who committed to the Bulldogs in May after entering the transfer portal a month earlier. He was granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA in July.

Georgia also has three other scholarship quarterbacks on its roster: senior Stetson Bennett, freshman Carson Beck and redshirt freshman D'Wan Mathis.

Daniels started for USC as a freshman, passing for 2,672 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

In his statement, Newman thanked Smart "for extending the offer for me to be a part of the University of Georgia football program". He completed almost 61 percent of his passes, adding 574 yards and six scores on the ground.
