Arik Gilbert, former Georgia TE/WR, makes B1G transfer decision
Arik Gilbert spent 1 season at LSU before transferring to Georgia, where he remained for 2 seasons. The tight end/wide receiver from the Atlanta area will now head to the B1G to hopefully resurrect what once appeared to be a promising college career.
According to On3’s Hayes Fawcett, Gilbert has committed to Nebraska and 1st-year head coach Matt Rhule. He will join former teammate MJ Sherman, a linebacker with Georgia for 3 seasons.
Gilbert saw success in his 1st year at LSU. Considered by 247Sports the No. 5 recruit in the class of 2020, he made 38 catches for 368 yards and a pair of touchdowns. For his efforts, he was named to the SEC’s All-Freshman Team.
He ultimately entered the transfer portal and landed closer to home at Georgia in 2021. But he didn’t play during his 1st season in Athens due to an undisclosed personal issue. In 2022, he played in just 3 games, totaling 2 catches for 16 yards and a touchdown against Vanderbilt.
