After entering the transfer portal just days before Georgia’s annual G-Day game, former five-star offensive tackle Amarius Mims is returning to Athens for the 2022 season, sources say.
Mims received numerous accolades throughout his senior season at Bleckley. He was selected to be an Under Armor All-American and was named a first-team All-American by SI All-American.
Mims is a special prospect who doesn’t come around often. Upon entering college, many thought it would take a year for Mims to develop and become physically ready for SEC play. Instead, he took that time as a rookie, rotating with second and third units behind Warren McClendon, Broderick Jones and Owen Condon.
As a sophomore, Mims is expected to face another year behind Warren McClendon. McClendon returned for his redshirt junior season, his third as a starter in Athens, and according to sources, this led to Amarius Mims entering the NCAA transfer portal.
After visiting Florida State shortly after his decision to enter the portal, sources tell SI Dawgs Daily that returning to Georgia for another season is not out of reach.

With the portal not removing the ability to return to a player’s current school, it will allow Georgia to bring a potential All-SEC offensive tackle back to Amarius Mims, restoring much-needed depth to the offensive tackle.
