John Taylor Dooley, the grandson of former Georgia Head Coach and Athletic Director Vince Dooley, has accepted the opportunity to walk-on with the Bulldogs.

“JT” Dooley is a class of 2017 wide receiver prospect out of Highland Park High School from the Dallas, Texas area. JT’s father, Derek Dooley, was a walk-on wide receiver himself at the University of Virgina.
Vince Dooley told theAthens Banner-Herald’s Mark Weiser:

“He was so excited. He’s going to walk on. It’s very exciting, particularly for his grandmother (Barbara). She’s happy and I am, too, but she’s much more emotional so she’s really happy about it. He’ll be around. It’ll be a great experience for him.”

The 6 foot 1 and 175 lbs receiver will join another Georgia legacy for 2017 in Athens, Frank Sinkwich IV, the great grandson of none other than Georgia’s 1942 Heisman Trophy winner Frank Sinkwich.
Sinkwich announced he had committed to the Bulldogs as a preferred walk-on back on January 4th via Twitter.
