Morgantown, West Virginia – When West Virginia University lost Jahmile Addae to the University of Georgia, they lost one of the very best young coaches in college football.
Four year starter at West Virginia at defensive back, two-time captain of the Mountaineers and two-time All Big East selection, Addae is the former co-defensive coordinator at West Virginia and in 2020 – his final season at West Virginia before departing for Georgia – West Virginia’s defense was one of the best in the nation, ranked 4th nationally, giving up only 291.4 yards per game.
Addae, 39, is now the defensive backs coach for the Georgia Bulldogs, who are currently 12-1 and ranked #3 in the nation. In addition, Georgia has the 3rd best recruiting class in 2022.
Addae has become the Bulldogs’ top recruiter and one of the best in the country in only one season at Georgia. Addae was the lead recruiter and personally responsible for the commitments of four 5 star prospects and two 4 star recruits next season.
Malaki Starks, a five star prospect and one of the top recruits in the nation, has committed to play for Addae at Georgia. In addition, five star cornerbacks Jaheim Singletary and Daylen Everette, as well as five star edge rusher Marvin Jones, Jr. will play for Addae’s secondary next season.
While losing Addae was a huge loss for the Mountaineers, he’s clearly gone on to great success in the SEC. Jahmile Addae is a true Mountaineer and hopefully one day he can return home to West Virginia where he belongs.
