The Georgia Bulldogs have signed Chris Mayes, Jonathan Rumph, and Kennar Johnson, three JUCO football recruits for the 2013 recruiting class.
Mayes (6-4, 330) is a defensive lineman that will likely line up at nose guard for the Dawgs. The Rivals.com 3-star recruit graduated from Spalding High School in Griffin, Ga. and signed with the Bulldogs in 2011 as part of the “Dream Team.” However, he failed to qualify academically and has played the last two seasons at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
In 2011, Mayes had 17 tackles, a forced fumble and and fumble recovery. He redshirted in 2012, so he will have three years to play three seasons at UGA.
Rumph (6-5, 215) is a wide receiver from Cayce, SC (Brookland-Cayce High School). He spent the last two seasons at Holmes Community College in Mississippi. As a freshman, Rumph had 42 receptions for 778 yards and 4 touchdowns. He followed that up with 45 catches for 569 yards and three touchdowns in his sophomore season.
ESPN rates Rumph as the no. 7 JUCO prospect in the nation, while Rivals.com and Scout.com each rate him as a 4-star recruit.
Also signing with Georgia is safety Kennar Johnson of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Johnson (6-2, 185) attended East Ridge High Schools in Clermont, FL and played for Reedly College (Reedly, Ca.) as a freshman before transferring to GCCC.
Johnson, rated three stars by Rivals, will have three years to play two seasons at Georgia. The Bulldogs have reportedly received his letter of intent but have yet to officially announce his signing.
