ATHENS -- Georgia quarterback Logan Gray decided Wednesday to remain with the Bulldogs after considering a transfer.

"I have decided to stay at the University of Georgia because I truly do love being a Georgia Bulldog," Gray said. "I want to be a part of this team getting back to the SEC Championship game and winning it. I'm also looking forward to getting some work at receiver and am going to work hard to make the best out of my opportunity at this position as well. I appreciate coach (Mark) Richt's patience while I made this decision and his helpful advice. Now, I want to put all of this behind me and focus on getting to work on preparations for next season at UGA."

Richt was happy as well.

"I'm extremely pleased that Logan has decided to remain a Bulldog," Richt said. "He's an outstanding player and a great person as well. We're fortunate to have him and he'll be an important part of our team over the next two years."

The junior wasn't sure he wanted to remain at Georgia after redshirt freshman Aaron Murray was named the No. 1 quarterback coming out of spring practice.

If Gray had transferred, the Bulldogs would've been faced with having a true freshman as Murray's backup. Instead, Gray will give Georgia experience at quarterback, and he's also going to get some work at receiver.
