Quarterback John Rhys Plumlee has committed to Georgia.

John Rhys Plumlee didn’t see two major hurdles standing in his way in Athens. He just saw an opportunity to compete with Jake Fromm and Justin Fields.

The Bulldogs saw a two-sport athlete with very good speed they hoped to add to their quarterback room, too. The 4-star athlete from Mississippi sent out a tweet Friday night that broke the news of his commitment to Georgia.

He has a 95-yard touchdown run on his varsity resume. Very few high school quarterbacks can say that.

The Magnolia State product completed 63 percent of his passes as a junior for 1,759 yards. He threw 14 touchdown passes, but his 9 interceptions stand out. His rushed for another 599 rushing yards and 8 scores.

He missed a couple of games during his junior season with a fractured thumb.

It is also worth noting he carries a very high rating from ESPN. That service charts him as the nation’s No. 9 dual-threat QB prospect for this cycle.

How does the rest of the recruiting industry view Plumlee?

  • 247Sports ranks him as a 3-star recruit, the nation’s No. 35 ATH and at No. 389 overall.
  • Rivals.com lists Plumlee as a 3-star prospect and as the nation’s No. 14 dual-threat QB.
