Georgia freshman forward JoJo Toppin has found a new program.

Toppin announced via his Instagram page that he is transferring to Georgia State to play for newly hired head coach Rob Lanier.

The freshman played in 18 games for Georgia this season and averaged 1.4 points per game.

Toppin is one of three Georgia players to announce intentions to transfer this season, along with sophomore Teshaun Hightower and freshman Ignas Sarguinas, both of whom have not yet announced their next homes.
