The transfer portal strikes again as Bulldog defensive back Tyrique Stevenson‍ has decided to pursue other options this fall.

Sources close to the situation tell Dawg Post that Stevenson would like to play possibly his final college season closer to home and with his family.

The former 5-star from Miami Southridge (FL) was a huge signing for Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs in the 2019 class. The 6-foot-0 200-pounder chose the Bulldogs over the local Miami Hurricanes and others out of high school. He was ranked as the No.3 CB prospect, the No.4 prospect in the state of Florida, and the No.37 overall prospect in the country for the 2019 class.

Stevenson made his presence known early on as a freshman where he saw action in 14 games during the 2019 season. He made 13 tackles and broke up five passes as a freshman, playing his best football as the season went on. Stevenson also made a big impact in Georgia’s big 21-14 over Auburn.

As a sophomore this past fall, Stevenson played in all 10 games of the regular season, making 34 tackles and breaking up five passes. His best game came in a seven-tackle performance against Mississippi State, but his biggest moment came at the end of Georgia’s Peach Bowl win over Cincinnati. Stevenson broke up a key third-down pass that would’ve secured the victory for the Bearcats.

Stevenson becomes Georgia’s third defensive back to leave the program as starting cornerbacks Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell both opted out of their senior season and entered the 2021 NFL Draft.

 Stevenson played mostly the Star position in Georgia’s secondary, so that position will be up for grabs. Safeties Latavious Brini, Christopher Smith, Major Burns, Daran Branch, and newcomer David Daniel will all push for playing time at the Star position this spring.
