Georgia adds transfer WRs Lovett, Thomas from SEC rivals
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — No. 1 Georgia bolstered its depth at wide receiver for the 2023 season Thursday when two wide receiver transfers from Southeastern Conference teams committed to play for the Bulldogs.
Missouri’s Dominic Lovett and Mississippi State’s Rara Thomas announced their decisions on their Twitter accounts. Each ranked among the SEC’s top 15 in yards receiving in 2022.
Lovett, a sophomore, ranked fourth in the league with 846 receiving yards on 56 catches. He had three touchdown catches.
Thomas, also a sophomore, was 14th with 610 yards on 38 catches, including seven for touchdowns.
The transfers can’t play in this year’s postseason for Georgia, which will face No. 4 Ohio State in the Peach Bowl College Football Playoff semifinal in Atlanta.
Georgia has had two players, tight end Arik Gilbert and defensive lineman Bill Norton, enter the transfer portal.
