Wide Receiver's to Emerge in the SEC in 2024

Spring games have mostly concluded, and all teams are well into their spring practices at this point. Throughout the off season, we have picked up tea leaves from coaches and seen highlights of players in practice that can lead us to speculate who may emerge at the wide receiver position in the SEC for 2024. In this article, I predict who I think may emerge at the position based on information I have gleaned and highlights I have seen.

Dillon Bell (Georgia)

Bell is just the latest example that stars do not always matter in Athens for head coach Kirby Smart. Last year, Bell began to emerge for the Bulldogs late in 2023 catching 228 yards and a touchdown in his last four games.

Colbie Young (Georgia)

The six foot three inch tall Young transferred from the Miami Hurricanes this past fall. In Coral Gables in 2023, Young caught five touchdowns for 563 yards.

Against Texas A&M in the second week of the season, Young has a season high six catches for 75 yards and a touchdown.

His height showed it could pay massive dividends during the Bulldogs’ spring game this past Saturday.

While many are just now noticing Young’s presence and pleasantly surprised, LockedOn Bulldogs podcast hosts Clint Shamblin and Daniel Monroe have been touting Young since he joined the Bulldogs months ago. These two are usually spot-on. This combined with Young’s performance in the spring game should be promising for Bulldog fans heading into the fall. 

Anthony Evans III (Georgia)

Evans flashed on the scene for the Bulldogs last year against the Florida State Seminoles in the Capital One Orange Bowl, and in the SEC Championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Against the Seminoles, Evans caught a 14-yard touchdown pass and had a 28-yard punt return in the SEC Championship versus Alabama.

Evans flashed again the spring game for the Bulldogs this past Saturday, which should not be a surprise. The Converse, Texas native maintained his redshirt in 2023 with Smart opting to keep him under wraps. Do not watch for him to be a secret for long in 2024.
