ATHENS - A week ago it looked like former 5-star offensive tackle Amarius Mims‍ was leaving the Georgia Bulldogs

Now it appears Mims is going to stick with the Bulldogs. The former Bleckley County star played limited minutes in 2021 during Georgia’s run to the 2021 national title, and he missed two practices last week as well as the Dawgs’ annual G Day game in Sanford Stadium

But multiple reports are out, and insiders have confirmed that Mims is likely headed back to Athens to play in Silver Britches again. Mims took a trip to Florida State last Wednesday, and was greeted by Notes coach Mike Norvell

The move back to Georgia gives the Bulldogs even more depth on their offensive line. If Mims can fight his way into the starting lineup remains to be seen. Both tackle starting tackle spots appear to have roadblocks in his way with Warren McClendon and Broderick Jones at the starting spots. 

When asked about the NCAA Transfer Portal after G Day, Georgia coach Kirby Smart said over the weekend that his program was interested in developing the talent that it brings in. 

“The guys that want to be here, we're going to coach them.  The guys that don't, then we're not going to chase after them,” he said. “We can't.  That's their determination. We're trying to create a culture of I want to be here and grow and get better.  Like you come to Georgia, you get developed.  If I'm not the guy, at least I'm developing to be the guy, and we've got a lot, a lot of examples of guys that stuck around and became really good players, and Channing Tindall is a great example of that.  That's really my focus.  It's really not on who's in it, who's not in it.”
