  Georgia's first opt out of the 2020 college football season couldn't be any bigger. Wake Forest graduate transfer Jamie Newman won't play for the Bulldogs after all, someone who is familiar with the situation confirmed to the Athens Banner-Herald. Yahoo Sports was first to report Newman's decision and Newman himself soon confirmed the news himself. Newman cited "uncertainties of this year amid a global pandemic," and said he will start training for the 2021 NFL draft where he's a possible first-round draft pick. "While we will miss him being part of our program, I fully support Jamie's decision and we will continue to regard him as a Georgia Bulldog," said UGA coach Kirby Smart via a statement. "Certainly we wish him nothing but the best in his quest for an NFL career and he knows he will always have a home at UGA."

Newman's high school coach Anthony Timmons was unaware Newman decided to opt out before the announcement. "Kind of surprising, but you know what LSU is losing some good players and there's a couple of players from different colleges opting out," said Timmons, who coached Newman at Graham High School in North Carolina. "I'm not quite sure what to fully make of it." The departure leaves Georgia with Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels, coming off a knee injury, as the leading candidate to start. The Bulldogs' other quarterbacks are redshirt frshman D'Wan Mathis, true freshman Carson Beck and redshirt junior Stetson Bennett. - Athens Daily Banner
