Georgia walk-on running back Sevaughn Clark entered the transfer portal on Thursday. He’s not the first walk-on to do so, but is among the ones with the most experience having appeared in 11 career games. Clark has carried the ball 27 times for 109 yards in three seasons with the Bulldogs.

While the departure of a walk-on isn’t going to do too much damage to Georgia’s depth at running back, the Bulldogs could become short there quickly if things went south. Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards are both in their fourth seasons with the program. Branson Robinson is headed into his second, as is Andrew Paul. Meanwhile, Roderick Robinson will be a freshman this fall. That leaves Dell McGee with just five scholarship backs and few who have a ton of experience, combining for less than 500 carries in total (470, an average of 94 per player).

Georgia also has Cash Jones, a fellow walk-on of Clark’s who seemed to pass him by on the depth chart this past season. Jones saw action as a reserve running back and special teams player in 11 games last year alone. He had two carries for 44 yards and a touchdown. Jones led the Red Team (first-team offense) in rushing attempts, rushing yards and receptions on Saturday during the annual G-Day spring game.

“No, we have good backs,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said when asked about the running back position and whether it was a concern of his headed into the fall after having so few available for the spring game with Milton, Paul and B. Robinson out. “Andrew Paul had a really good fall camp. We feel really good about him coming back healthy, and it’s going to be like his freshman year because he really didn’t get that so he’ll be behind. Branson, whenever we’re able to get him back, man, he had a great spring. He got the workload. We’ve got two backs with a lot of experience in Daijun (Edwards) and Kendall, who’ve played and done a good job. So I’m excited about those guys.”

Cash (Jones) has done a great job. Roderick Robinson had a good day today,” he continued about the two that got the majority of touches with Edwards only getting five touches (three carries / two catches). “He’s (Robinson) a different kind of back, but he catches the ball coming out of the backfield. He’s big and physical. Guys don’t like tackling him. So we have a good group of backs. I feel really confident about the group we have.”

Georgia has had 14 scholarship players enter the transfer portal so far this offseason including four since the opening of the portal this spring. Griffin Scroggs came the most recent to do so, joining AD Mitchell (Texas), Dominic Blaylock, Brett Seither (Georgia Tech), Ryland Goede (Mississippi State), Jacob Hood (Nebraska), Bear Alexander, Shone Washington, Bill Norton (Arizona), Trezmen Marshall (Alabama), Rian Davis and Jaheim Singletary (Arkansas).
