Georgia wide receiver Dominick Blaylock will miss the upcoming season with a knee injury that requires surgery, the school announced.

Multiple outlets reported that the 6-foot-1 sophomore tore his left ACL in practice Wednesday, the same knee he injured in the SEC Championship game against LSU last December.

Blaylock appeared in 12 of the Bulldogs’ 14 games as a freshman in 2019. He caught 18 passes for 310 yards and five touchdowns.

Blaylock, the son of former NBA All-Star Mookie Blaylock, was a four-star recruit in the Class of 2019 out of Walton High School in Marietta, Ga. He was ranked as the No. 5 receiver and the No. 36 overall prospect by the 247 Sports Composite.

Ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press Top 25 preseason poll, Georgia is scheduled to open the season on Sept. 26 at Arkansas.
