The Mays High School wide receiver won’t have to remove his UGA tattoo.

Randrecous Davis, a 3-star recruit famously known for having the “G” tattooed on his bicep, committed to UGA on Monday, his high school coach Corey Jarvis told the AJC.

Davis also had offers from Alabama and Florida.

“Randrecous came back this evening and told me that he spoke to (wide receivers coach Bryan) McClendon on the phone and basically told him that ‘I’m ready to be a Dog,'” Jarvis told the AJC.

UGA coaches have toyed with the possibility of Davis switching to defensive back when he gets to campus, but the Mays senior doesn’t care one bit. His dream of becoming a Bulldog has come true.

“They talked to him about the possibility of playing some defensive back and some receiver, too,” Jarvis said. “That has a lot to do with his decision, too. Coach McClendon wants him at receiver, but coach Pruitt has been chomping at the bit wanting him to play some DB.

“He’s at the point right now where he really doesn’t care which position he plays. I know receiver is his preference and that’s where we have him at mostly, but so many people love his athleticism at cornerback as well. That could be his ticket to the NFL.”

The 5-foot-10, 169-pounder recently told the AJC that he expected to earn an offer at UGA’s Dawg Night prospect camp on Saturday, and that he was probably going to commit once he received it. McClendon, UGA’s recruiting coordinator, also went to Mays.

“(Bryan McClendon) came from the same high school as me and I have a lot of friends at Georgia who have played with me since I was young,” Davis said. “That’s been the plan for me. I’ve liked Georgia since I was little.”

Davis becomes UGA’s second wide receiver commit, along with Houston County’s Darion Anderson, in the class of 2016.
