Recruit Chris Mayes appears headed for JUCO

Chris Mayes wasn't likely to play this year for Georgia because of depth at his nose tackle position. Now it looks like the product of Griffin's Spalding High School won't be coming to Georgia for another couple years.

Mayes isn't likely to qualify academically and will be heading to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, reported this week.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt wouldn't confirm it on Thursday night before a Bulldog Club meeting in Columbus.

"I don't think I can talk about that," Richt said when asked by the Ledger-Enquirer's Kevin Price.

Mississippi Gulf Coast is the same school where John Jenkins is wrapping up his studies this month. Jenkins is due to compete for the starting nose tackle job with sophomore Kwame Geathers. The Bulldogs also have Mike Thornton, a redshirt freshman.

Mayes, listed at 6-foot-5 and 292 pounds, was rated a three-star prospect by

What is it with Spalding County?

I think the kid would've had to bulk up to play the nose anyway, so I doubt he would've seen much playing time this year.

Another positive: Jenkins and Cody went to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, so it really looks like the D-Line coach there knows how to continue to develop nose tackles.

Let's just hope he signs with UGA again after his stint in JUCO.

As a Griffin High school alumn.......yeah, I agree.

Does that open up another scholarship?

Geez, what is up with this program? We have players getting into trouble, acting lazy, going after recruits who are thieves, and now here we have a recruit (like WR Outlaw) who can't even qualify acedemically!

Fire Mark Richt!

So we'll probably get him back (hopefully) right when we need experienced depth at the NT position. NICE! I'm all in favor of using MGCC as a NT farm.

BuLLdawg, what's your point? That Mark Richt is one of the top 14 Div 1 coaches in America, or that he's last on that list?
