In 2023, Downs had barely decided to dodge Georgia’s recruitment efforts. With this new transfer window activated, fans are speculating something big. 

There is already noise on social media after Downs followed multiple football players from Ohio like Denzel Burke, Cameron Martinez, and Brandon Inniss.

However, College football reporter Tom VanHaaren had something different to add to the fold. 

Earlier today, he posted a Tweet saying,

“I was told that Alabama freshman Caleb Downs hasn’t made a decision on his future yet if he’ll stay or transfer.”

VanHarren further adds,

“He’d like to see who’s added to the Bama defensive staff, but very likely could make a decision either way tomorrow. Travaris Robinson staying at Georgia factors in.”

Since Downs is still silent on the issue, we can do nothing more than wait and watch.
