New Georgia transfer led all WRs in this stat last season
Former Missouri receiver Dominic Lovett joined Georgia this offseason as one of the top transfer portal additions in college football.
Lovett led the Tigers in receiving last season with 56 catches for 846 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore.
The slot receiver was particularly special versus man coverage and according to Pro Football Focus, was graded as the best in college football in man-to-man situations in 2022.

Lovett boosts a Georgia receiving corps that will be replacing star wideout Adonai Mitchell (Texas transfer), Kearis Jackson (NFL) and Dominick Blaylock, who has yet to find a home in the transfer portal.
The Bulldogs also added Mississippi State’s leading receiver Rara Thomas via the portal.
