Giant Georgia recruit John Atkins will not be able to report to his first UGA training camp after failing to get the required score on his ACT, the Atlanta Journal- Constitution has reported.

The 6 ft 4, 325-lb defensive linesman, who signed for the Bulldogs in February told the paper that he failed the test by “just one point”, and will therefore have to be redshirted for his first season.

He said: “I’m going to get it [the test score], and I feel like I can get it. I’m going to tutoring all week on how to take it. I’ll be ready for it.”

He will be working out at his high school, Thomson, until July, and he hopes to enrol in July.

Thomson was a 3-star recruit for the Dawgs.
