Recruit Chris Mayes appears headed for JUCO

Chris Mayes wasn't likely to play this year for Georgia because of depth at his nose tackle position. Now it looks like the product of Griffin's Spalding High School won't be coming to Georgia for another couple years.

Mayes isn't likely to qualify academically and will be heading to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, reported this week.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt wouldn't confirm it on Thursday night before a Bulldog Club meeting in Columbus.
