ATHENS, Ga. -- Having redshirted last fall at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Chris Mayes has three years of eligibility left now that he’s enrolled at Georgia. And that’s a good thing, as the big defensive lineman is still in many ways a project as a football player.

Mayes was a basketball player until the coaching staff at Spalding High School in Griffin, Ga. -- wowed by the athleticism displayed by a 6-foot-4 player who tipped the scales at nearly 300 pounds -- convinced him to play football for the first time as a junior.
