Randrecous Davis Picks Dawgs: What It Means

Mays WR Randrecous Davis picked Georgia over Alabama, Louisville and Florida on Monday night - two nights after he showed his blazing speed at Dawg Night.

“Blessed to say I have official committed to the University of Georgia,” Randrecous Davis tweeted Monday night.

What it means: Georgia is in desperate need for wide receivers. They’ve got a very fast one in Davis, who is considered a three-star prospect. The 5-11, 178-pound Mays product had offers from a slew of schools. He’s a smaller receiver, which is usually the case with speed backs.

If the Bulldogs are going to progress with Jacob Eason the way most folks think they will, the program is in need of adding receivers. It is interesting to see Georgia’s moves with receivers now. Keep in mind that for years Tony Ball recruited the receivers for the Dawgs. Georgia always had steady, but not unbelievable playmakers at receiver.

While Davis is not considered a threat to be an elite playmaker at the next level, one should note that new receivers coach Bryan McClendon reached into his backyard - Mays - to bring another Raider to Athens. McClendon went to the West Atlanta school as did standout LB Natrez Patrick.

Georgia needs to continue to address receiver, but adding Davis gives the Dawgs their speed WR for the 2016 class. Davis is Georgia's 2nd WR in this class. Georgia moved up back into the top ten of Scout's national recruiting rankings.
