Ty Flournoy-Smith (80) will spend his sophomore season at a junior college.

Flournoy-Smith (6-3, 229) signed with the Bulldogs in 2012, and appeared in eight games as a true freshman, mostly on special teams.

He is expected to transfer to Georgia Military College, a junior college, according to Rush Propst, his coach at Colquitt County High School in Moultrie, Ga.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that Georgia coach Mark Richt is not ruling out Flournoy-Smith’s possible return to UGA.

“Possibly,” Richt said Wednesday night before an appearance in Statesboro, Ga. “That could happen.”

In February, Flournoy-Smith allegedly reported three textbooks valued at $225 stolen when he actually resold them to a local buyback store. He was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of filing a false report of a crime, and pleaded not guilty April 17.

He was a 3-star prospect and the nation’s No. 12 tight end according to Rivals.com, and a 4-star recruit by ESPN.
