UGA could get some last-minute help on the offensive line.
Mirko Jurkovic Jr., who signed with Ohio State last February but didn’t go there because of an academic issue, could enroll at UGA, a source told the AJC on Monday.
If it works out, it would be 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’s status with UGA is pending his approval by school admissions.
This wouldn’t be 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.
