Toby Johnson, a defensive lineman from Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, signed a letter of intent Tuesday to play for Georgia.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder played at Banneker High School in College Park, Ga., before heading to Hutchinson, where he had 87 tackles, 17 tackles for a loss, five sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and two blocked kicks in two seasons. He was rated the No. 8 junior college prospect by Rivals.com and Scout.com.

Johnson, the 33rd signee in Georgia's class, had scholarship offers also from Auburn, Mississippi State and Oklahoma.
