Mason: Rumph might be the MVP at receiver for spring ball

If they gave out awards after six spring practices, Georgia starting quarterback Hutson Mason knows which player he would hand one out to at wideout.

“Jonathon Rumph, I think, so far might be the MVP at receiver for spring ball,” Mason said. “It’s just night and day from last spring. He’s always been that big-bodied guy that you thought you could just throw up to and he’d get it. He’s just flat out making more plays this spring than he was last spring, and it’s great to see a guy who’s that big of a target that you can have that mismatch.”

The 6-foot-5, 208-pound Rumph, a junior college transfer, had seven catches for 121 yards last season, but battled a hamstring injury and didn’t play his first game until November against Florida.

“I’m in a good position to showcase my talent,” Rumph said Friday night.

Rumph said he is looking to improve “my flexibility, my health, eating right and technique, things like that. Really just getting in the playbook so I can be more versatile in the offense.”
