This morning proves that not all Mondays are terrible, as the rumors suggest that Georgia football offensive tackle Amarius Mims could return to the program. reported that Mims is expected to remove his name from the transfer portal this morning. This report is excellent news for the Dawgs because there can never be too many guys on that offensive line. He adds extra depth that Georgia doesn’t mind having.

Last week, Mims entered the portal and visited Florida State this past weekend. However, things seemed to have changed with the former 5-star.

Georgia football could see Amarius Mims return to the program.

Fellow 5-star Clay Webb also entered the portal, but right now, the reports only suggest that Mims expects to return to the team soon.

At 6-7 and 330-pound, Mims was someone that everyone thought would break into the lineup, but things weren’t quite going that well. He started against UAB last year and played in seven other games. With Jamaree Salyer and Justin Shaffer headed to the NFL, everyone thought he would get into the rotation, but it didn’t seem to happen.

After visiting FSU, there must have been a change of heart, and we don’t blame him. Georgia has some of the best facilities, nutrition, schooling, and anything an athlete could need in Athens.

Broderick Jones seems to have locked in the left tackle spot, so Mims could fight for that backup position now that he seems to be staying in Athens.

Georgia needs depth on the offensive line, so having him return is a win for the Dawgs. No one likes seeing a 5-star like him leave, and while it wasn’t going to be detrimental because Earnest Greene stepped up this spring, we won’t complain about him returning.

Mims will have to work his tail off to make up for the missed time, but he must know that the best situation is in Athens.

With college football and the NIL deals drastically changing things, it’s good to see him decide to stick with his initial decision. It shows that something is going right in Athens without NILs.
