ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs are hoping to make college football history this upcoming season.

The back-to-back national champions are preparing for the 2023 season in hopes of achieving the almost unthinkable “three-peat”.

There’s talent all over the place, and they have one of the deepest and most talented receiving rooms in the SEC.

Everyone knows about Ladd McConkey and incoming transfer Dominic Lovett, but Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint is another veteran wideout with plenty of size, ball skills, physicality, and playmaking potential.

The 6-foot-2 195-pounder out of Pompano Beach, Florida played in all 15 games last year, catching 29 passes for 337 yards and two touchdowns, with one of them coming in Georgia’s beatdown of No. 1 Tennessee in Sanford Stadium.

Rosey-Jacksaint may not get as many targets as he should, but that could change in 2023. When the ball comes his way, good things happen. Look for him to take on a leadership role this fall along with more passes coming his way.

The senior receiver spoke with the media this week about the “three-peat”, the addition of Dominic Lovett, and much more.

On the possibility of winning three national championships in a row...

"That is something that we are not even worried about right now. We are worried about UT-Martin. We are worried about the first game and then the next game and the next day. We are not worried about a three-peat - that's not what we are focused on. We are focused on winning today and attacking the day today. I know everybody wants to talk about the three-peat, but that's not what we are focused on. We are just focused on ourselves and getting better."

 

On what stands about Dominic Lovett since joining the program…

“His ability to come in – he came in during the spring – his ability to get right in the playbook and start learning the plays right away. His athletic ability – he’s super-fast, quick, great hands, great route running, and I feel like he is just going to be an extra tool for us to use this year. He’s a great person and a great player. I feel like he will put in a lot of work for us, and he’ll contribute for us this year.”

 

On the impact of wide receiver transfers has on the position group…

“In my head, whenever somebody new comes in the wide receiver room – I’ve been here for four years, so one thing about me, I always want to welcome everybody. You made it here to Georgia so you’re family now. Like Rara [Thomas] and Dom [Lovett], they came in and I accepted them with open arms. The whole team accepted them with open arms. They haven’t felt left out or ostracized or anything like that. With me, I just want to bring them in and make them feel a part of the team. They’re part of the family that we have here.”
