  • Ohio State signee Mirko Jurkovic signs with Georgia after academic issue

    Offensive lineman Mirko Jurkovic, a three-star prospect from IMG Academy, tweeted Monday that he was attending Georgia this fall after originally committing to Ohio State.

    According to the Columbus Dispatch, Jurkovic was denied admission to Ohio State because of academics, but apparently Georgia’s academic requirements aren’t nearly as stringent. UGASports.com, citing a source, said it wasn’t academics, but rather the fact that Ohio State had exceeded its scholarship limit that left Jurkovic available.

    Either way, Ohio State’s loss is Georgia’s gain.

    Jurkovic had 22 offers out of high school and, shockingly, Georgia was not one of them. But once Jurkovic became a free agent, the Bulldogs pounced. Notre Dame also courted Jukovic, but wanted him to first attend nearby Holy Cross College.

    Jurkovic is the son of former Notre Dame All-American Mirko Jurkovic Sr., and the nephew of John Jurkovic who played nine years in the NFL.

    BYU signee Charles West was shot in the arm Sunday evening while playing pickup basketball at a middle school in Dallas.

    West, a three-star running back out of Coppell, Texas, was playing basketball with several people when a man walked up to him and shot him in the upper left arm.

    According to police, five or six shots were fired and West fled the scene. He got about a half mile before he knocked on a door and asked for help.

    West was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

    Police said seven people witnessed the incident and a video also was circulating. Police were still trying to determine whether the video was authentic. Police have identified a person of interest, but have not yet released a name.

    For all who is concerned I'm fine. May the lord be with everyone.
