Georgia added two quarterbacks during the early signing period, and interestingly enough, committed Mississippi native John Rhys Plumlee was not among them.
That fact may be all that is needed to be said when it comes to Plumlee’s future in Athens but that doesn’t mean the Hattiesburg, Miss., native doesn’t have solid options leading up to National Signing Day. In-state schools Ole Miss and Mississippi State are both after the four-star prospect from Oak Grove High School.
Following the end of the dead period in recruiting, Joe Moorhead’s program was first to host Plumlee for a visit over the weekend. While Mississippi State already added four-star signee Garrett Shrader during the early signing period, he has already enrolled early and arrived on campus in Starkville, Moorhead’s program looks to be interested in adding more depth at the game’s most important position heading into 2019.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Plumlee is rated as the No. 7 dual-threat QB in the nation and the No. 265 overall prospect by 247Sports Composite Rankings. He’s expected to visit Miami and Ole Miss leading up to National Signing Day when he’ll need to make his final decision.
Plumlee passed for 2,834 yards and 33 touchdowns to only three interceptions as a senior for Oak Grove. He also added 1,444 yards and another 19 scores on the ground during his final season in high school.
He posted the following photo on Twitter during his visit to Mississippi State:
