ATHENS -- Dontavius Jackson, one of two Georgia players arrested on alcohol-related charges last week, is transferring from the university after summer semester.

Coach Mark Richt suspended Jackson for at least six games after the sophomore was charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident and other motor vehicle offenses early Saturday morning.

Jackson, a backup running back, had four carries for 38 yards in 2009.

Richt announced Jackson's plans to transfer on Wednesday. The school initially said Jackson would transfer after spring semester.

Sophomore split end Tavarres King was charged with underaged possession of alcohol and has been suspended for at least one game.
