UGA Football recruiting: Bulldogs set for huge weekend

Georgia will be hosting at least 17 football recruits this weekend, including top uncommitted JUCO prospect Toby Johnson.

Georgia coach Mark Richt is prepared for perhaps the biggest recruiting weekend of the season when at least 17 prospects descend on Athens Friday.

Most of the players visiting have already committed to Georgia, but there is one top uncommitted prospect making the trip. That would be defensive tackle Toby Johnson out of Hutchinson junior college. Despite recently undergoing surgery for a torn ACL and MCL, Johnson remains one of Richt's top priorities. Johnson is ranked No. 2 out of junior college prospects by 247sports.

Johnson has only taken visits to Georgia and Oklahoma, but he is set to take a trip to Missouri next month. The 6'5, 310-pound defensive tackle does not have a timetable for his commitment (via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution):

"I don't know exactly when I'm going to commit," Johnson said. "But whenever it feels right, I'm going to go ahead and do it."

Georgia currently has 30 commitments for the class of 2013, and could potentially sign up to 36. Click here for the full list of committed players who will be visiting the school this weekend.
