If Gray Transfers, could Bacarri Rambo move back to QB?

Rumors are flying today that Logan Gray may leave the program and transfer for an opportunity to start during his final two years of eligibility. If that happens, Georgia will be down to one scholarship quarterback until freshman Hutson Mason arrives on campus later this summer. Fortunately for the Dawgs, they have a player on campus who played quarterback in high school and acted as the main scout team quarterback during his freshman year in 2008. Of course I am talking about starting safety Bacarri Rambo.

Rambo came to Georgia from Seminole County High where he was a star on both sides of the ball. While Rambo has developed into a great play making safety, if the situation was right, would Georgia move him back to quarterback? He spent his true freshman year emulating mobile QB opponents on the scout team including Tim Tebow and Josh Nesbitt. In 1995, Georgia was faced with a similar situation and moved Hines Ward to quarterback for much of the season.

Of course, none of this will probably happen. Even if Gray leaves, Mason should come in and be fine in the back up position. But with the way things have been going lately, you never know what will happen next.

You can't be serious.

Bacarri Rambo could never be an SEC QB. Sure, he can take a snap and played QB in HS, but he only played there because it was a tiny school and he was the best athlete, something that happens at least a hundred times every year to athlete-QB's in the state of Georgia.

Yeah, Rambo could play QB, but the only game Georgia would win would be La.Lafayette and that might not be easy. Idaho State might be asking too much.

I'm not being serious, just having a little fun with a worst case scenario.

That begs a question though, would you rather put a guy like Rambo out there or a walk-on?

IF both Murray and Mason got hurt I am sure the coaches would consider it. Probably add in some option etc. I hope it doesn't get to the point that we need him too but I would feel better with him back there as opposed to a true freshman walk on. Hopefully Murray will stay healthy and by this time next year all the worries will be gone as Murray will be established, Mason will have a year of practice and Lemay will be in the fold.
