When Marcus Rosemy watched the LSU game last Saturday night, he had a different reaction than recruiters at rival schools might have been wishing for.
Georgia’s top receiver recruit for this cycle broke it down into a simple formula: Hard work + talent + An opening = An early opportunity.
That 27-point loss on a very big stage did not give him pause about his commitment, but more of a cause to prepare himself for.
“The game last night was an eye-opener for me cause I saw first hand that the receiver corps is not where it’s supposed to be at the moment,” he said on Sunday. “But that it is a great opportunity for me to come in during June and win a starting job.”
He didn’t reach for any negativity with that. He just processed what his eyes saw. The same word kept showing up in his thoughts: Opportunity.
Rosemy sees a way he can help the Bulldogs get more out of its offense in the next big game like that one.
“It does because when I look at the receiver spots I see a wide-open slot waiting for me but I just have to go in with a business mentality,” he told DawgNation.
That 37-10 loss showed him how quickly he might be able to play for Georgia. When Georgia lost to South Carolina earlier this year, it stoked up more of the same reaction. He learned something from that.
