Kirby Smart On How Georgia’s Grad Transfers Look So Far

first_img In four years at Miami, Cager recorded 45 receptions for 681 yards and ten touchdowns. This past year he recorded career highs with 21 receptions for 374 yards and six touchdowns.Wolf was less prolific with the Vols, making eight catches for 78 yards and a touchdown during his four years there.While Smart will certainly be happy to see his two transfer acquisitions up to speed, it’s hard to argue that Georgia benefited overall from the first year of the transfer portal.Former five-star quarterback Justin Fields is one of six Georgia players who have left the team via the portal.

But they’ve also picked up a few players who are quickly making an impression on head coach Kirby Smart.Speaking to the media this week, Smart spoke glowingly about graduate transfers wide receiver Lawrence Cager and tight end Eli Wolf. Cager joined the Bulldogs in a transfer from Miami (FL), while Wolf joins from SEC rival Tennessee.Smart complimented Cager and Wolf on their maturity, and believes that they’ve already “bought in” and “blended in” to the program. Via DawgNation:“I’ve seen them workout, and they do that hard… They are very mature, just what you’d expect.“These guys come from two really good programs, they work really hard, they know this is their season, so this is their opportunity to shine, and I feel like those guys have bought in and they’ve really blended in well.”Cager and Wolf will likely need to be up to speed if they hope to contribute in their lone year with the team. Georgia will be without several of their top receivers last year, who have moved on to the NFL.last_img
