ATHENS — Georgia football has added Mississippi State receiver Rara Thomas through the transfer portal.

Thomas had 44 catches for 626 yards and 7 touchdowns this season. Thomas’ yards ranked 12th in the SEC this season, and his 7 TD grabs were tied for fourth-most in the league.

The Bulldogs added three 4-star WR early enrollees in the 2023 class, Tyler Williams, Anthony Evans and Yazeed Haynes.

Veteran Georgia receiver Kearis Jackson noted that the three young receivers have had their lockers placed next to his during the early bowl practices, as they have been among the nine early enrollees practicing with the team.

Jackson’s status for next season is not known, and there has been no indication if Dominick Blaylock will return for another season with the Bulldogs.

The No. 1-ranked Bulldogs play No. 4 Ohio State at 8 p.m. on Dec. 31 in the CFP Peach Bowl Semifinal at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Thomas was on Georgia’s radar when he played at Eufaula High School in Alabama before he signed in 2021 with Mississippi State and played his first two seasons in Starkville.
