Georgia Tech running back Christian Malloy to transfer

At perhaps the deepest position on the roster, Georgia Tech running back Christian Malloy has elected to transfer.

Malloy, from Parkview High, played in one game in his first season on campus (2018) and four games last season as a redshirt freshman. Last season, he ran seven times for 32 yards.

He has three seasons of eligibility remaining, but has three seasons to complete them. Were he to transfer to another FBS school, he likely would have to sit out the 2020 season and then have two seasons remaining to compete.

Malloy was in a position group with All-ACC back Jordan Mason, Jamious Griffin and was to be joined by four-star signee Jahmyr Gibbs. Dontae Smith, Devin Ellison and Tony Amerson also are scholarship returnees, and Bruce Jordan-Swilling moved to running back from linebacker in spring practice.

The news was first reported Monday by 247Sports.
