For Georgia fans who were worried about depth at wide receiver for this season, this was a game-changing week.
On Friday evening, Miami grad Lawrence Cager announced on Twitter that he was transferring to UGA. Earlier in the week, longtime Auburn 5-star commit George Pickens flipped to the Bulldogs on Wednesday’s signing day.
Who is Lawrence Cager? He’s a 6-foot-5, 220-pounder who was Miami’s second-leading receiver this past season, while also catching a team-high six touchdown passes. He made 18 career starts for the Hurricanes, and he’ll be eligible to play immediately at Georgia.
Cager’s tremendous size gives the Bulldogs a major weapon in the red zone. He also provides some much-needed depth, as junior receivers Mecole Hardman and Riley Ridley departed early for this year’s NFL Draft.
This is the second commitment from a graduate transfer in as many days for UGA. On Thursday, Tennessee tight end Eli Wolf announced he was headed to the Bulldogs.
