Demetris Robertson may have escaped UGA’s grip after the in-state wide receiver prospect committed to Cal on Sunday, but another five-star Bulldogs recruit in Mecole Hardman Jr. is offering himself up as an in-house suggestion to help pick up the slack.
@KirbySmartUGA I heard you might need some more fire power at WR? Just call my name and I'll give you more than you need ✊?

Hardman, who signed with the Bulldogs on National Signing Day, is expected to start out at cornerback and also return kicks, while eventually working his way toward playing receiver. But Robertson’s decision to head west could force UGA coach Kirby Smart into considering using the nation’s No. 1-ranked athlete prospect on offense sooner than expected..
It indeed would be fun for Bulldogs fans to see five-star quarterback signee Jacob Eason throwing the deep ball to Hardman. We’ll see what the Bulldogs have in store for Hardman this summer and fall.
