It was announced by Justin Rowland of Rivals that Georgia linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson took a visit to Kentucky this past weekend. After the recent visit, Jamon has announced today that he is committing to the University of Kentucky.


This is a huge pickup for Coach Stoops and company as Kentucky is losing a lot of depth at the linebacker position during the offseason. Trevin Wallace, D'Eryk Jackson, and JJ Weaver are all three more than likely headed to the NFL Draft following the Gator Bowl. Also, Destin Wade, another defensive linebacker, decided to transfer with his twin brother Keaten Wade to Colorado.


The former 4-star recruit managed to record 34 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, and 2 pass deflections in his nine games played this season. Johnson was also one of the most productive players on the defensive side of the ball in last year's national championship game.


This pickup is the type of athlete who can play either inside or outside linebacker. It appears that Johnson can space the open field so that he is more effective against the run. He can read plays really well and has a quick reaction time in his coverage. However, if he can continue to increase his upper body strength over the next season he has the potential to be a fairly quick pick off of the NFL Draft board some day. The 6'1 245-pound backer started in 9 games at Georgia over three seasons, playing in 33 career games. Experience, SEC standout, and now a Kentucky Wildcat.
