UGA commit Rico Johnson exudes speed 

July, 18, 2012
The past two months have been a whirlwind for Rico Johnson (Swainsboro, Ga./Swainsboro). The 5-foot-11, 172-pound athlete put himself on the radar with an impressive performance at the Charlotte NFTC, but no offers had come in for the in-state sleeper. What Johnson did earn was an invite to the Mark Richt Camp in June, and an opportunity to impress the coaching staff at the University of Georgia.

Johnson did not disappoint. After running blistering 40 times of 4.25 and 4.28 seconds, and making play after play at cornerback, Johnson was asked to line up at wide receiver. The unheralded athlete was able to burn cornerbacks left and right – and he earned a coveted offer from the Bulldogs. He wasted little time accepting the scholarship and accomplishing the dream of thousands of high school athletes.

To Johnson, though, there is something beyond just playing FBS football.
