The rich got a little bit richer on Wednesday as the Georgia Bulldogs picked up a big commitment into their class of 2021 recruiting cycle. Jamon Dumas-Johnson is a 4-star OLB out of St. Francis (Baltimore, Md.) Academy and his is one of the top linebacker recruits in the entire class.

The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder is ranked by the 247Sports Composite as the No. 214 player nationally, the No. 14 OLB and the No. 11 player in the state of Maryland. Dumas-Johnson projects as an inside linebacker thanks to his speed and physical nature and the Bulldogs beat out the likes of Florida, Auburn and Tennessee to pick up a linebacker that always seemed destined to play somewhere in the SEC.
Jamon Dumas-Johnson scouting report
Dumas-Johnson is a big get for the Bulldogs after they went the entire month of June without picking up a commitment. The Bulldogs have moved up to the No. 16 ranked class in the country and their ranking will only increase as they pick up more commitments to fill out a class that has fewer pledges than any above them in the rankings other than Alabama.
The video below shows what Dumas-Johnson is all about. The first play is one we call “destruction of a quarterback”, where the linebacker shows ridiculous closing speed to blast an opponent into the third row of the bleachers. This fits the general theme of Dumas-Johnson’s high school highlights, which all seem to see the linebacker arriving at the right time and the right angle to run through an opponent and slam him into the ground.
There isn’t much subtle about the way Jamon Dumas-Johnson plays, but you wouldn’t want that in a 235 pound MLB. He is going to punish running backs coming through the hole and quarterbacks when he is blitzing with that insane closing speed and tackling technique. This is a player ready-made for the SEC who should have Georgia fans excited at his commitment.
