“‘I took it into consideration a lot,’ Humphrey told DawgsHQ in an exclusive interview, commenting specifically on UGA’s persistent pursuit. ‘I know with a solid year at Georgia, I can get to the NFL. The more I thought about this, why would I leave Georgia for a handful more bucks? I want to go there, it is Georgia and that is one of the top premier programs in the country.'”

Whether or if Humphrey will be with the team by the end of the transfer portal window will be totally up to him, but it is wonderful news for Kirby Smart and Will Muschamp as they won’t be losing a valued piece to their defensive success from the 2023 season.
