Richt adds DL Toby Johnson as Dogs' 33rd signee

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Junior college defensive lineman Toby Johnson has become the 33rd member of Georgia's signing class.

Georgia coach Mark Richt says Johnson, from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, signed with the Bulldogs on Tuesday. Johnson, from College Park, Ga., attended Banneker High School.

At 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds, Johnson was ranked among the top junior college prospects in the nation. He had five sacks and 17 tackles for losses in two seasons at Hutchinson.

Richt says he is looking forward to Johnson competing for playing time in the 2013 season.

Georgia's class includes 13 players who've already enrolled in Athens after graduating early from high school or junior college.
