ATHENS - The receiver position is a huge need for Georgia in recruiting.
And the Bulldogs are filling it.
Two more joined the fold over the weekend: On Friday Uriah LeMay, a receiver from Matthews, N.C., made his commitment to Georgia. Then on Sunday came Reggie Davis from Tallahassee, Fla. (LeMay is the younger brother of current Georgia quarterback Christian LeMay.)
That brings Georgia to four receiver commitments for 2013, all of them categorized as four-star prospects by the major recruiting services. That's important for the Bulldogs, who only signed one receiver (Blake Tibbs) last February.

The team is also due to lose starting receivers Tavarres King and Marlon Brown to graduation. After that the depth is a bit precarious, even with sophomore Malcolm Mitchell eventually expected back after playing defense. Fellow sophomores Chris Conley and Michael Bennett look like they could have productive careers. Rantavious Wooten took a medical redshirt and will be a junior again this season. Redshirt freshman Justin Scott-Wesley looks like he could have a role on the offense this year too.
Georgia has 19 commitments now, but probably isn't done looking for help at receiver, or the other big position need, offensive line. Mark Richt has said the team can and will sign more than 30 players next February.
