Georgia’s Jonathon Rumph has picked up from where he left off on G-Day.
The junior college transfer receiver had a quiet spring before accounting for 98 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the spring game.
The 6-foot-5, 208-pounder from Cayce, S.C., had four catches for 53 yards on Wednesday in Georgia’s first preseason scrimmage.
“Rumph looks so much more comfortable now then he did in spring,” coach Mark Richt said. “He just was really finding his way. Now he’s much more sure of himself. He looks confident. He’s practicing with confidence. I don’t think we would be afraid to have Rumph get in the ballgame. We’ve just got to make sure he knows what to do in every situation.”
Speedster Reggie Davis had two catches for 23 yards.
“I don’t know what his role is going to be, but I would say he’s definitely in the race for playing time,” Richt said. “We’re not thinking redshirt for either one of those two right now.”
Rumph tied for the lead in catches on the day with Mitchell (4-64), Justin Scott-Wesley (4-53) and Arthur Lynch (4-91 TD).
