Georgia wide receiver Ladd McConkey will return in 2023 for his final season with the Bulldogs.

“One last ride with my friends! No place I’d rather be #back2work,” he wrote.
After redshirting his first season in Athens, McConkey emerged as a star pass catcher in Year 2. Over the past two seasons, he had 89 catches for 1,209 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also recorded 178 yards and three touchdowns in the rushing game.
McConkey could declare for the 2023 NFL Draft, but he could enter the league as a late-round pick or undrafted free agent. In today’s age zero, it makes sense that the 21-year-old receiver is heading back for another season at the collegiate level.
McConkey played a large role in the Bulldogs’ two national championship victories. He and Kirby Smart’s Georgia team will be looking for a rare three-peat in 2023.
