ATHENS, GA. - The Georgia Bulldogs football roster will be seeing some changes as starting punter and backup quarterback Brice Ramsey and defensive back Reggie Wilkerson will transfer from the program.

Ramsey has one year of eligibility remaining. 

Wilkerson was a four-star recruit when he graduated from North Marion High School in Citra, Florida in 2013, according to 247Sports. He was considered the 25th-best corner in the class of 2103 along with the 50th-best player in the state of Florida. 

Wilikerson also enrolled early at UGA in January 2013 before redshirting for the 2013 season. 

He appeared in one game in 2014, when he accrued one tackle in the Bulldogs' game against Troy. In 2015, Wilkerson played in 13 games, registering 11 total tackles, two tackles for loss, and an interception. Last season, Wilkerson played in six games and had five total tackles. 

Wilkerson also has one year of eligibility remaining. 

It has not been announced where Ramsey or Wilkerson will transfer.  

Georgia has two scholarship quarterbacks remaining on the roster: sophomore Jacob Eason and freshman Jake Fromm.
