Blog: Langley makes move from secondary to receiver for Bulldogs

Brendan Langley, who started at cornerback the first four games last season as a freshman before being replaced, is moving to wide receiver for Georgia.

“Gonna be fun going back to my roots on offense!” Langley tweeted Monday night. “Cant wait to see how i will be utilized into our offense!”

The move is the latest of an ever-changing Georgia secondary under new coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Cornerback Shaq Wiggins is transferring and safety Josh Harvey-Clemons was dismissed and will play for Louisville.

Coach Mark Richt confirmed Langley’s position change on Monday night to Dawgs247.

Georgia is looking for more depth at receiver with Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley coming back from injuries.

The 6-foot-1, 181-pound Langley got beat on a pair of touchdowns against South Carolina in the second game last season. He played in only five of the last nine games, all in a backup role. He was looked at as a safety this spring.

Langley played both cornerback and receiver for Kell. In a game against Gainesville in 2012, he had 167 receiving yards and four touchdowns, according to AccessNorthGa.com.
