Georgia sent its recruiting coordinator to Kansas this past weekend to evaluate Toby Johnson.
The Georgia Bulldogs are trying to add one of the top defenders in the country to their defensive line next year. Last weekend, the Bulldogs sent recruiting coordinator Randy Garner to Kansas to evaluate the nation's best junior college player, Toby Johnson, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Johnson, a 6'5, 310-pound defensive tackle, plays for Hutchinson, who defeated Independence, 75-0, on Saturday.
After the game, Garner spoke with Johnson:
"Coach Garner had said that he wanted to watch me play in person," Johnson told the AJC. "He told my coaches that I played pretty well and he liked what he saw.
"When I talked to him, we didn’t talk much about how they need me. I already know that for a fact. I’ve looked at the depth chart, and I’ve seen Georgia play this season."
Johnson is expected to take five official visits before deciding on a school in December. He is also expected to consider Oklahoma.
