BREAKING: Ohio State signee commits to UGA

Mirko Jurkovic Jr., who signed with Ohio State last February but didn’t go there because of an academic issue, has decided to enroll at UGA.

Earlier on Monday, it was reported that Jurkovic was close to signing with UGA.  

This is a big addition for UGA, which signed four offensive linemen this year after hoping to bring in five. One of the signees, DeVondre Seymour, has already decided to give up football after reporting to UGA for summer school last month.

The 6-foot-5, 275-pounder is a Notre Dame legacy who attended Florida’s IMG Academy prep school this past year.

Jurkovic will report to fall camp on August 2, according to his Twitter account.

This isn’t the first time something like this happened. Shortly before this year’s signing day, UGA added offensive lineman Sam Madden after he was denied admission to Wisconsin.
