Reggie Davis: UGA lands fourth WR for 2013 class

It’s raining wide receivers at UGA.

For the second time in three days, the Bulldogs landed a commitment from a 4-star wide receiver.

Reggie Davis, a 6-foot-1, 155-pound speedster from Tallahassee, Fla., committed to UGA over Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and Ohio State, among others.

“Coach [Mark Richt] screamed when I told him … He said I made his weekend,” Davis told the AJC.

“Georgia has been there ever since my sophomore year, and [UGA WR coach Tony Ball] said that he liked that I said I would come in, work hard and compete for a spot. He said ‘You know, I don’t mind playing freshmen.’ He said they could make plays around me, and I could do kickoff and punt returns after competing hard and working for it. That’s what I wanted to hear, so why not commit?”

Davis committed to UGA on Sunday, while Uriah LeMay pledged on Friday – giving the Bulldogs a total of four WR commitments for its 2013 recruiting class. Davis said he was unsure if UGA (which could sign as many as 30 in February) would try to sign any more at the position.

“Coach Ball said they were looking for 3-4 wide receivers because two are leaving this year, one may be leaving, and another one is going to defense,” Davis said. “I don’t know if this is it or not. I’m not the recruiting coach or head coach. I don’t have any worries about if they do get more, because there’s always going to be competition.”

The Florida Gators were the runner-up. “To be honest, Charlie Weis was the coach that offered me from Florida. When he left to go to Kansas, I think my Florida offer left with him. After that, the [Florida coaches] were like ‘Why don’t you come to camp and show the new coaches what you can do?’ But why would I do all of that when I still have a Georgia offer sitting here and they [Florida] have other coaches that know what I can do. Why should I have to go through that when I have a bunch of other schools lined up and waiting for me?

“I’m not trying to sound cocky or nothing, but I’m just saying … it’s my senior year, and I don’t want to have to be waiting for that last-minute call trying to pick up an offer. You know what I’m saying?”

What type of WR is Davis? “I think I will be a speedy wide receiver. I can be like a little DeSean Jackson at UGA. Coach [Ball] said I can be the guy who can stretch the defense with my speed.”

UGA now has 19 commitments for its 2013 recruiting class.

Add 4 or 5 offensive linemen, plus Coach Bobo making it past page 2 of our playbook, and we’ll be set on offense. GO DAWGS!

Sounds like a nice commit speed wise, but he better hit the weight room or he will get killed.

I guess all of these receivers means that Malcolm Mitchell will be a full time CB after this year. That’s a good thing because I believe Mitchell could end up being the best CB in the country.

20-30 more pounds on him and this kid could be dangerous. This is a serious pick up for the dawgs if they can hold him. I wonder which receiver is “leaving” the team? Could it be Marlon Brown or Wooten? hhhmmmm, I’m curious. He also confirmed the rumor that Mitchell’s move to defense might be permanent.

HA Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha South Carolina can’t get any good receivers to come to their school. Can’t even get the best one in your state. When he’s burning your defense with his speed your going to be saying,” I thought he would get broken in half”.

Brown and King are Seniors. They are the 2 that are leaving this year. They could be talking about Wooten that keeps getting injured and had that bad concussion.

I’m pretty sure Tavarrez King was this exact same size coming out of high school and he has done fairly well. I don’t think they will be asking him to run routes across the middle and get killed by the huge SEC safties and linebackers. His role will be to stretch the field meaning he will be running go routes, bubble screens, reverses etc… I think this is a good pickup. Go Dawgs! Also congrats to Tech on there pickup.

Gamecocks. I just scanned your roster. Most of your receivers are 5-9 and most of them weigh around 175-185 lbs. You only have about 2-3 that’s 6″0 or over and you want to talk about the size of a kid that’s 16-17 year old and has another year of growing to do. Get real

The problem with being a receiver at SC is that your QB keeps running with the ball instead of throwing it.

I know Reggie, play ball with him. He only 16 so he’s gonna grow. His dad is also pretty built and his dad is a track star (Olympics). He also does track. Helped win state 4×1. Fastest kid I’ve seen on a field. Hard worker, runs good routes, the Dawgs got a great damn pick with him.
