Georgia nose guard John Jenkins did not follow the smoothest path to SEC football, spending two years at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College before big programs like Georgia and Florida pursued him as a recruit.

And even once he arrived at UGA, things didn't come easily for the big nose guard from Connecticut. Jenkins didn't truly begin to figure things out until midway through his first season -- a fairly common progression for a juco transfer.

Jenkins has finally gained a comfort level at Georgia, and his experiences in junior college helped him appreciate that progress all the more.
