4-Star LB Jamon Dumas-Johnson Commits to Georgia


Jamon Dumas-Johnson, a physical 4-Star linebacker from Baltimore, MD

committed to Georgia on Wednesday afternoon.


"The reason why I picked UGA is because I feel as though I trust them the most," Dumas-Johnson said. "Coach (Kirby) Smart and his staff I believe they can help me take my talents to next level."


How the Bulldogs will use Dumas-Johnson played a big role in his decision.

"I like how they attack the ball (in) the running (game)," he said. "I think I fit perfectly in this defense. Also, (Georgia was the pick) because they are the real LBU."


St. Frances coach Henry Russell also sees the fit with Georgia and Dumas-Johnson.

“When you think about physicality on defense, you think about the SEC,” Russell said. “It seems like Jamon will be a great fit for Georgia. They’ve had some great defenses under (coach) Kirby Smart, (defensive coordinator) Dan Lanning. I expect him to come in and contribute on special teams and hopefully work his way into the lineup, but he has all the skill sets to be a really outstanding player.”


Dumas-Johnson's other four finalists were Tennessee, Florida, Auburn and Maryland.


Dumas-Johnson is the Bulldogs 10th commitment to the 2021 Class.
