ATHENS, Ga. -- Looking back, Marc Deas believes he was acting selfishly when he opted to transfer away from Georgia in search of increased playing time.

The rising redshirt sophomore safety said after Tuesday’s practice that it was much easier to ask Coach Mark Richt to accept him back into the program following a weeklong hiatus than it was to tell him of his intention to leave.

“I was selfish at the beginning and I really didn’t know what I had until I stepped away from the program,” Deas said. “I feel like it’s a blessing just to be accepted back, not just by Coach Richt and Georgia, but for my teammates and everybody else -- the fans and everything. That’s a real blessing.”
