UGA Football Recruiting: Toby Johnson waits to hear from Mark Richt

Mark Zerof-US PRESSWIRE

Despite a season-ending injury, Toby Johnson remains hopeful he'll hear from the Bulldogs soon

Toby Johnson, the top ranked junior college prospect in the nation is waiting to hear from Georgia head coach Mark Richt, after sustaining a season-ending injury last week.

The 6-foot-4, 310-pound defensive tackle from Huchinson Junior College has recruiting visits lined up to numerous top-flight schools, but waits to hear from Richt following his knee injury, which is believed could be a tear in the ACL and MCL. Johnson remains at the top of the Bulldogs' board for 2013, and isn't too worried about his status, based on his words to the media Thursday:

"I haven't talked to Coach Mark Richt," Johnson said. "I've talked to Tennessee, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Miami ... I've talked to everybody but Georgia. They usually call sometime during the week. They're going to call later, I'm sure."

Toby Johnson has only taken one official visit to Oklahoma, but it's certain we'll see him head to UGA before long. Planning to enroll in the Spring, he will have plenty of time to recover from his injury, depending on its severity (an MRI is scheduled for this week). Even if Toby Johnson is unable to play immediately, he still has another year as a redshirt he can use if needed.
