Trevor Etienne, a notable name in the running back position from his time with the Florida football team, has entered the transfer portal in search of a new team. As the brother of Travis Etienne, a former Clemson star now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Trevor is currently leaning towards committing to Georgia, according to BetOnline, with +200 odds in their favor. Ohio State is the next closest contender with +250 odds. If the deal goes through, it would be a significant boost for the Bulldogs, as Etienne possesses the skills to make an immediate impact in the upcoming season.

During his stint with Florida this season, Etienne demonstrated his prowess by accumulating 131 carries, 753 yards, and eight touchdowns, boasting an impressive 5.7 yards per carry (YPC). Georgia fans have reason to be excited about the prospect of his potential contribution to the team.

While Etienne’s final destination remains uncertain, Georgia seems well-positioned to secure his commitment. The potential move adds an intriguing dimension to the longstanding rivalry between the Bulldogs and the Gators, who face off annually on a neutral field. If Etienne chooses Georgia, the ensuing matchup against Florida is sure to captivate fans and add a compelling narrative to the rivalry.
