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.

"We are thrilled that Toby has decided to become a Georgia Bulldog," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "We're looking forward to watching him compete for playing time this upcoming season."

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