CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Virginia officially added more size and depth at the wide receiver position on Tuesday -- including one player with a previous connection to quarterback Bryce Perkins.
UVA announced the additions of graduate transfer wide receivers Dejon Brissett and Terrell Chatman on Tuesday afternoon. Both players will enroll at UVA in June and have one season of eligibility remaining.
Brissett announced his decision to finish his career at UVA on Instagram on Monday. He was an All-CAA first-team selection at Richmond in 2017, after catching 63 passes for 896 yards and seven touchdowns. The 6-2 Brissett only played in three games last season because of an ankle injury.
Listed at 6-4, Chatman brings even more size to the wide receiver position. A former Arizona State teammate of Perkins, Chatman caught a total of three passes for 28 yards and a touchdown for the Sun Devils the past three seasons.
UVA returns two of its top three receivers from last year in rising seniors Hasise Dubois (52 catches, 578 yards, five touchdowns) and Joe Reed (25 catches, 465 yards, seven touchdowns). But the Wahoos need to replace the production of departed senior Olamide Zaccheaus, who left as the program's all-time leader in catches and second all-time in receiving yards.
