Blog: Update on Georgia football signees reporting

Most of Georgia’s 33 signees from its 2013 football recruiting class are now on campus, where summer school began this week.

There were 13 that arrived in the mid-year, leaving 20 more to join the class.

Only four have yet to report: safety Kennar Johnson from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, offensive lineman DeVondre Seymour from North Gwinnett and receivers Rico Johnson from Swainsboro and Uriah LeMay from Butler High in Matthews, N.C.

Seymour was signed knowing he was a long shot to make it academically and he will be headed to junior college or prep school. He’s the only one of the four known to have been ruled out this season from joining the Bulldogs.

Kennar Johnson graduated from junior college in December, but is back in his home state of Florida completing a course with designs on leaving for Athens on June 24. He had the option of taking the course in Florida or in Georgia and he decided to take it back home, according to Bud O’Hara, who coached Johnson at East Ridge High School in Clermont, Fla.

Butler High, where LeMay is from, is ending its school year today.
