The recruitment of one of Georgia’s top remaining targets had been in limbo for a while after recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner left the Bulldogs to take a position at Auburn. Juco defensive tackle Toby Johnson (College Park, Ga./Hutchinson Community College) maintained that the Bulldogs were still his top team, but everything hinged on who was hired to replace Garner, Johnson’s position coach and primary recruiter.

Late Friday evening DawgNation received word that Mississippi State defensive line coach Chris Wilson accepted an offer to join Mark Richt’s staff. The hire has not been finalized, but a formal announcement is expected by Tuesday. Wilson was Johnson’s primary recruiter at Mississippi State and will continue to try to bring the talented defender to Athens.

“I think it is a good hire,” Johnson said. “Coach Wilson has put a lot of people in the league. He is a good coach, and I have a good relationship with him.”
