According to Justin Rowland from Rivals.com, Kentucky hosted Georgia linebacker, Jamon Dumas-Johnson, this past weekend.
This is huge news for Kentucky as they are lacking a little bit at the linebacker position going into the offseason. A pickup in the addition of him would be very beneficial to the UK defense.
With several Kentucky linebackers leaving for the NFL Draft this summer, Brad White is looking for his replacements on the field. Trevin Wallace, D'Eryk Jackson, and JJ Weaver are all headed to the NFL more than likely, and then there is Keaten Wade, who decided to transfer with his brother Destin Wade to Colorado.
Jamon Dumas-Johnson is a former 4-star recruit out of Baltimore, Maryland who played high school ball for St. Frances Academy. He was a top-200 prospect coming out of high school and the 22nd-best linebacker in the entire country, while also being the eighth-best overall player in the state of Maryland in 2021.
In his three-year career with the Bulldogs, he managed to total 125 total tackles, 83 solo, 6 pass deflections, 9.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 1 interception. A lot of talent, looking for another chance. There'a been a lot of speculation about Brad White being able to address the defensive needs in the transfer portal this offseason and if managed to bring Dumas-Johnson to Kentucky that will be a great start for the 2024 season.
