When last on the same field, Dominic Lovett was the leading receiver there, catching a long pass that set up Missouri’s lone touchdown in its near-upset of No. 1 Georgia. Evidently, the Bulldogs saw enough.
Lovett, who ranks third in the SEC in catches and receiving yards, announced Thursday that he will transfer to Georgia for next season. That followed the announcement by RaRa Thomas, another receiver, that he was transferring from Mississippi State to Georgia.
Here’s what you need to know.
Lovett led Missouri in both catches (56) and receiving yards (846), and had three touchdowns last season. He had six catches for 84 yards against Georgia on Oct. 1, including a 36-yard catch.
He will have two more years of eligibility.
A product of East St. Louis, Ill., Lovett was a four-star recruit in 2021, the second-ranked player in Missouri’s class at No. 331 overall in the 247Sports Composite.
