In his statement, Klock thanked coach Paul Johnson and the staff for the opportunity to play, as well as the team’s medical, training and academic adviser staffs.
“I am forever grateful for my time as a Yellow Jacket,” he wrote. “I have made some lifelong friends and incredible memories that I will never forget. The legacy of the traditions this program was founded on will live inside me for the rest of my life and I am very proud to have been a part of it.”
Of the eight transfers since the end of the regular season, Klock will be the first to leave as a graduate. The other seven are linebacker Emanuel Bridges, B-back Marcus Marshall, cornerbacks Meiko Dotson and Dorian Walker, wide receiver Harland Howell and Christian Philpott and defensive lineman Trent Sellers.
