ORLANDO, Fla., — Anyone who watched Georgia football this year could see that the Bulldogs needed help at the wide receiver position this year. Recruits noticed that too.
The Bulldogs addressed those concerns by signing four wide receivers in the 2020 recruiting cycle. Justin Robinson, Marcus Rosemy, Jermaine Burton and Arian Smith are all hoping to help the Bulldogs next year improve and will look to do so early next year.
DawgNation caught up with both Rosemy and Smith in Orlando as a part of the Under Armour All-America Game. Rosemy is the No. 41 overall prospect in the class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings and played for Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas.
Smith is from Lakeland, Fla. and is the No. 72 prospect in the country. He won the fastest man competition earlier in the week.
In the video below, Rosemy and Smith discuss what they excel at, what their freshmen expectations are for this upcoming season and why Georgia needs to land 5-star athlete Darnell Washington to add to its array of pass catchers.
Rosemy did suffer a shoulder injury on Tuesday but indicated that he will be fine. Both Smith and Rosemy will not be enrolling early. In addition to football, Smith is a track standout and will also run at Georgia.
In interviews earlier this week, both downplayed the LSU loss, specifically with how the wide receivers looked in that game. Smith added that the game was actually the reason for his commitment to Georgia, as he told DawgNation he called Georgia coach Kirby Smart the day after the loss to make his commitment.
Smith is the speedster and says he envisions his game turning into a Tyreek Hill type role. Smart has compared Smith to Mecole Hardman given the type of speed he can bring to the offense and special teams.
Rosemy is more of a technician, as he’s able to make contested catches and win in tight spaces. He said he’s tried to model his game off of Calvin Johnson. Rosemy made an impressive sideline grab during Tuesday’s practices.
The Under Armour All-America Game will be played in Orlando on Jan. 2. Smith and Rosemy will play on opposing teams. Burton was supposed to be in attendance for this game but was unable to participate due to an illness.
