ATHENS - Georgia is losing yet another defensive back, but this time the result is it's gaining another receiver.
Brendan Langley, who started four games last year at cornerback, is moving to receiver, head coach Mark Richt confirmed to Dawgs247.com on Monday.
Langley will be a sophomore this fall. He began last season as the starter, but was benched after the fourth game in favor of fellow freshman Shaq Wiggins. Langley finished the season with 12 tackles and two pass break-ups in nine games.
Wiggins decided to transfer last week. Georgia also lost safety-star Josh Harvey-Clemons, who was the team's third-leading tackler, then dismissed from the team in February.
Never miss a local story.
This leaves rising senior Damian Swann as the team's lone cornerback with more than one start under his belt. Aaron Davis, a walk-on freshman, was a first-team cornerback for much of spring practice.
But Georgia's depth at receiver has also been a concern, especially after this season, when it will have three seniors (Michael Bennett, Chris Conley, Jonathon Rumph) and redshirt junior Malcolm Mitchell, who could be a candidate to go pro.
Langley is listed at 6-foot-1 and 181 pounds, and played some receiver in high school.
