Post Happy JUCO Day

Vince Vance…all 6’7″ of him

It’s been a while since Georgia has signed a junior college football player, but that has changed in a big way. Today is the first day that JUCO transfers can sign with a program, and Georgia has received three signatures so far.

OG/OT Scott Haverkamp, DE Jarius Wynn, and DT Corvey Irvin signed with the Dawgs today. Two other JUCO offensive linemen, Vince Vance and Joe Blaes, are also expected to sign within the next day or so. All will be enrolled for spring semester and will be able to provide depth during spring practice. The Dawgs needed some immediate help on the offensive line particularly, and these junior college transfers give the Dawgs some older and more physically-mature players than the typical true freshman at a position where that really matters. Now they have about eight months to get up to speed and hopefully contribute to Georgia’s depth for the 2007 season.

UPDATE: Chad Simmons of UGASports.com is reporting tonight ($) that Blaes will not sign with Georgia at this time because the Dawgs apparently ran out of room for mid-year enrollees. It is possible that Blaes still could sign with Georgia in February and enroll in the summer, but he is weighing his options and considering a couple of other schools where he could enroll mid-year..
