Johnson is another JUCO prospect but, unlike other big names who have joined the ranks thus far, Johnson’s name isn’t as well-known.

Georgia Football Coach Mark Richt was asked to look back on some games – games the Bulldogs lost – in his press briefing Sunday to talk about the upcoming Southeastern Conference Championship Game.

Aaron Murray has opted to remain incognito this week as his No. 3 ranked Georgia Bulldogs prepare to face-off against Alabama this weekend. However, his absence from the microphone hasn’t kept tongues from wagging about the overwhelming challenges he’ll face playing against the Crimson Tides’ vaunted defense.
