Georgia's gathering of graduate-transfer football players out of the Atlantic Coast Conference didn't end with Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman.

Florida State tight end Tre' McKitty announced Monday via Twitter that he would be joining the Bulldogs for his final year of eligibility.

"I'm excited to become part of the UGA family," McKitty said. "I can't wait to see what the new year has in store."

McKitty, a 6-foot-5, 245-pounder from Wesley Chapel, Florida, caught 23 passes for 241 yards this past season in 12 games, which included nine starts. He had 26 receptions for 256 yards and two touchdowns during the 2018 season.

As a Florida State signee in 2017, McKitty was the nation's No. 15 tight end and the No. 397 prospect overall on the 247Sports.com composite rankings.

Georgia is losing two senior tight ends from its Sugar Bowl championship team, Charlie Woerner and Eli Wolf, with Wolf leading Bulldogs tight ends with 13 catches for 194 yards and a touchdown after transferring from Tennessee. The Bulldogs signed the nation's No. 1 tight end, Darnell Washington of Las Vegas, last month during the early period.

Newman announced this past weekend on social media that he would play his final season with the Bulldogs.
