Johnson Discusses Decision

Kennar Johnson visited Georgia officially this weekend and he committed while in Athens. Find out why and where he will play here.

"I have committed to Georgia," Kennar Johnson told Scout from the airport Sunday morning. "I committed to Coach [Mark] Richt last night. I felt ready to make my decision and Georgia is where I want to be."

Johnson chose Georgia over Ole Miss and South Florida and he is now set to enroll at UGA in January.

He knows where the Dawgs want to use him.

"They want me to play free safety for them. They like my size and my ability on the field, and they want me to come in and help when they lose Bacarri Rambo. I will be ready."

Not only did Johnson like the fact that he would have the opportunity to compete for playing time immediately at Georgia, but he just feels good with the people that will be his new family.

"The situation is just right for me at Georgia. I really enjoyed my visit this weekend, I like the coaches a lot, and I feel Georgia is just the right place for me.

"I am not too far from home, I will be around good people, and I knew it was time for me to make my decision when I was there this weekend."

Georgia is getting a 6-foot-2, 195 pound defensive back out of Gulf Coast Community College and he will have three years to play two.

Johnson can't wait to get there.

"I am ready for Georgia," he said. "It is SEC football, they have a great thing going there, and I am looking forward to getting there early in January."
