Kennar Johnson commits to Georgia over Ole Miss, Mississippi State

Scott Cunningham

The Bulldogs landed the commitment of junior college safety Kennar Johnson on Saturday night, hours after defeating Georgia Tech.

Saturday was a good day for the Georgia Bulldogs. On top of crushing Georgia Tech, 42-10, they also landed the commitment of junior college safety Kennar Johnson.

Johnson, a 6'3", 190 lb safety from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, picked Georgia over in-state options Ole Miss and Mississippi State. He came to head coach Mark Richt's house on Saturday night after watching the game and told him he was committing in person. He's the 30th commitment in this recruiting class for the Bulldogs.

Johnson's commitment is big for the Bulldogs, who will be losing eight starters on the defensive side of the ball. He is one of five players committed to Georgia that primarily plays safety right now. Obviously, not all of those players will end up at safety once they get to Athens, but that type of depth will help take the sting off the huge number of players leaving the team after the season.
