Miami graduate transfer Lawrence Cager announces he will play for Georgia in 2019
Georgia lost a ton of offensive production at receiver and tight end following the conclusion of the 2018 season but have quickly rallied in recent days to find creative ways to make up for those losses.
It started with the addition of five-star 2019 signee George Pickens of Alabama, who flipped his longtime commitment from Auburn to Georgia on National Signing Day, and continued with the addition of Tennessee graduate transfer tight end Eli Wolf and now Miami receiver Lawrence Cager has pledged to join the Bulldogs for the 2019 season.
Cager is also a graduate transfer, making him eligible immediately in Athens for the 2019 season.
The former Hurricane announced the news Friday evening:
I have decided to transfer to UGA where I will continue my academic and athletic career. I am excited for this new journey with Coach Smart and the entire UGA family. #GoDawgs pic.twitter.com/a3cNpXujfT

During his three seasons with Miami, Cager caught 45 passes for 681 yards and 10 touchdowns. Based on his highlight reel below, Cager appears to be an incredible red zone target and at the very least, worthy of a visit for a Georgia team that could use a big target next season for Jake Fromm.
