Georgia’s 2021 class got a boost this afternoon with the commitment of 4-star outside linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson. Dumas-Johnson is out of Baltimore. After Georgia signed 5-star Mekhail Sherman out of Washington, D.C. last year, he would be the second straight blue-chip linebacker the Dawgs have signed out of the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area.
Dumas-Johnson can cover the field from sideline to sideline out of his middle linebacker spot, and that very well could be the reason Kirby Smart and Dan Lanning wanted him so badly. With so many offenses running forms of the spread these days, speed and coverage ability are traits that Smart and Lanning prioritize in their linebackers. Dumas-Johnson looks to be another pice in an already deep linebacking corps. Check out his highlights below. He’s fun to watch, and reminds me a bit of former Dawg Rennie Curran.
Many industry experts have called Dumas-Johnson’s recruiting one of the quietest of the 2021 cycle. Jamon doesn’t appear to be very into social media, but his Twitter profile picture was of him wearing Florida gear for quite awhile. He switched it to just a black circle prior to announcing his commitment. That caused some folks to speculate that he was trolling the Gators. If true, then I think I like him already.
Besides the Gators, Georgia beat out Tennessee, Auburn, Texas A&M, Michigan, FSU and Ole Miss for Dumas-Johnson’s services. He is rated as the 11th best outside linebacker in the class of 2021, but many experts think that rating could rise if he gets to play out his Senior season. Dumas-Johnson is the 10th commitment in Georgia’s 2021 signing class, and the second outside-linebacker, joining fellow 4-Star OLB Chaz Chambliss.
