With the signing period for junior college players beginning on Wednesday, junior college prospects Chris Mayes and Jonathan Rumph have signed with the Georgia Bulldogs.

The 6-foot-4, 330-pound Mayes initially signed with Georgia back in 2011 but did not qualify academically. The nose tackle spent two seasons at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, where he redshirted one of those years. Mayes will have three years of eligibility at Georgia and he could be a candidate for immediate playing time, especially if junior nose tackle Kwame Geathers bolts for the NFL.

Rumph is a big wide receiver at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds. He spent the last two seasons at Holmes Community College in Mississippi. With 4-star receiver Tramel Terry possibly heading toward a redshirt after recently injuring his knee, Rumph could provide a boost at the position next season. Rumph will have two seasons of eligibility and has the option to redshirt one year.
