Georgia lands former Ohio State signee


Four-star offensive guard prospect Mirko Jurkovic Jr. found a new home in the SEC.

Jurkovic, who signed with Ohio State on national signing day in February, will enroll at Georgia according to 11alive.com.

The Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy prospect was the 33rd-ranked guard in the country and had numerous offers from Power 5 programs. The Columbus Dispatch reported in June that Jurkovic was denied enrollment at Ohio State because of an academic issue.
