Star Georgia defensive back Tyrique Stevenson has reportedly entered the NCAA transfer portal this Monday.  Matt Zenitz of AL.com first reported the news, while Stevenson soon after took to Twitter to confirm the decision.

Stevenson tweeted a thank you video to UGA and then retweeted a 247Sports post about the breaking news just hours after.

All the Twitter buzz right now is leaning towards Stevenson signing with his hometown team, the Miami Hurricanes.  No official reports of that have come out yet but that is most likely where he will end up for the remainder of his college career.

In two seasons with the Bulldogs, Stevenson had 47 total tackles (31 solo), 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack and 10 pass deflections.  In 2019 he played in all 14 games, had 13 total stops, 5 pass breakups and 4 quarterback pressures, winning him Co-Defensive Newcomer of the Year honors at the team’s post-season awards gala.

In 2020 Stevenson saw action in all 10 games, leading the team in pass breakups and finishing 5th in total stops.

This is a massive hit to the Georgia secondary that is already getting peppered by the 2021 NFL Draft.  Defensive backs Eric Stokes, Tyson Campbell and DJ Daniel have all declared for the draft.  Stevenson was set to take on a massive leadership role for Kirby Smart, Dan Lanning and the Bulldog defense.

Kelee Ringo, Latavious Brini, Jalen Kimber, Ameer Speed, and Nyland Green will need to step up big time for the Dawgs secondary come the 2021 season.

Stevenson gave Dawg Nation a great two years, helping the Bulldogs capture a Sugar Bowl and a Peach Bowl.
