Dawgs sign trio
Wednesday was the first day junior college players could sign their letters of intent, and the fax machine at Georgia's Butts-Mehre Building was open for business.
The school confirmed to reporters that it had received the signed scholarship of former Spalding High standout Chris Mayes, who spent the last two seasons at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
Although Mayes was the only player UGA could confirm, wide receiver Jonathan Rumph and safety Kennar Johnson both told UGASports.com that they had faxed their letters to Georgia as well.
All three players have a chance to make immediate contributions to the Bulldogs next fall.
Johnson, who also held offers from Iowa State and South Florida, will have a chance to compete for immediate time following the graduation of Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams, while Rumph is a big-bodied receiver who caught 45 passes for 569 yards and three touchdowns for Holmes Community College.
Meanwhile, the 6-foot-4, 330-pound Mayes had 17 tackles, a forced fumble and fumble recovery for Mississippi Gulf Coast in 2011 before redshirting this past year.
