Dogs LB Burrows returns to team

By staff
According to multiple published reports University of Georgia linebacker Brandon Burrows has opted to return to Athens just days after announcing that he was transferring.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Burrows was reinstated on Monday after leaving the team last week -- the redshirt sophomore had said he was more suited to a 4-3 defensive scheme as a defensive end, rather than as a linebacker in Georgia's 3-4 line-up, but has since changed his mind.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Burrows, out of Marietta's Walton High, is listed as No. 3 at the "Mike" position (one of two middle linebacker spots in the line-up) on the preseason depth chart behind senior Mike Gilliard and sophomore Amarlo Herrera.

Burrows' return comes after a string of Bulldogs have either left the team or been dismissed for various issues. Georgia could begin the season with as few as 70 recruited scholarship players -- the limit for Football Bowl Subdivision programs is 85 scholarship players.
