Impressive stat promises Adonai Mitchell and Georgia Football


During the 2021 season, several Bulldogs players were dropped into the gauntlet of what SEC football is all about, and quite early in their careers. Real freshman Brock Bowers put his name on the map after his masterful breakout season, redshirt freshman Kelee Ringo burst onto the scene as an elite player at the position of cornerback, and true freshman Adonai Mitchell showed off his skills as a receiver.

These three players were all major contributors to the Bulldogs being crowned national champions. out of high school. They were known merchandise and stars. But Mitchel, Mitchell proved he had insane wide receiver potential at the University of Georgia as a former 3-star freshman. And there are more signs.

Mitchell’s most memorable play in a Georgia uniform came when he climbed over an Alabama defender to fire a 40-yard touchdown pass to put the Bulldogs late in the national championship game. .

While that singular play was by far the pinnacle of Mitchell’s freshman campaign, he did more than just pull off a miraculous play on the biggest stage. In 2021, Mitchell had 29 receptions, 426 yards and four touchdowns. Pretty impressive for a freshman player.

However, the most impressive stat for Mitchell lies in the depths of the stat sheet.

Since 2010, there have only been three wide receivers at UGA averaging at least 14.7 YPC with at least 25 receptions their first year. Malcolm Mitchell did it in 2011, George Pickens recently did it in 2019 and Adonai Mitchell did it last season. A nice elite company to surround if you are A. Mitchell.

Mitchell had to overcome some growing pains at the start of last season, as most true freshmen would, but that didn’t hamper his production on the football field. The Texas native has proven he’s here to stay as a coveted member of the Georgian offense, and he certainly doesn’t suck under the brightest lights the game has to offer.

Buy your tickets now and jump on the Adonai Mitchell hype bandwagon while you still can, as all signs point to a very special college career for the Bulldog wide receiver.
