ATHENS — Georgia football receivers Trey Blount and Makiya Tongue entering the transfer portal on Monday.

Neither player had a catch this season.

The No. 8-ranked Bulldogs are expected to have a loaded receiving corps returning next season, and coach Kirby Smart reference again on Monday how the December early signing day would make premium roster management a challenge.

“We’re in a situation where we’re probably going to have the largest number of mid-year (enrollees) that we’ve ever had,” Smart said last week, in reference to the Dec. 16 early signing date.

Georgia plays at Missouri at noon on Saturday looking to finish the season with momentum and attract more great players.

Blount is a redshirt junior Atlanta, who signed alongside his former Pace Academy teammate Andrew Thomas. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Blount saw action in three of the past four games for the Bulldogs.

Blount had a 13-yard reception last season against Arkansas State, and as a freshman in 2018, he had three catches for 39 yards and played in all 14 games.

Tongue is a 6-2, 210 redshirt freshman from Baton Rouge, the son of former NFL safety Reggie Tongue. Tongue saw action last season in games against Murray State, Arkansas State and Georgia Tech.

Last Monday quarterback D’Wan Mathis entered the transfer portal. Mathis, a 6-6, 210-pound prospect from Metro Detroit, has yet to decide on another program.

The Bulldogs had a handful of transfers during the last offseason: safeties Otis Reese (Ole Miss) and Divaad Wilson (Central Florida), along with offensive lineman Cade Mays (Tennessee).

Smart will evaluate his coaching staff after the season.
