"Everybody's talking about how good a prospect I am, what type of season I should have, this and that," he said at SEC Media Days in Birmingham. "But whenever anybody asks me about Charles Johnson, I say, ‘He's the best defensive end on the football team.' "
Johnson is a 6-2, 275-pound junior who spent the 2005 season backing up Will Thompson. Now that Thompson is out of eligibility, Moses is convinced that Johnson will emerge as a superstar.
"I really believe he has the potential," Moses said. "I've had more opportunities and more experience. But he's definitely the same caliber player I am … if not a better player."
Moses isn't just being humble or polite. Johnson really does have the talents to be a special player. Just ask Georgia's head coach.
Questioned about the Bulldogs' strengths, Mark Richt replied: "I think you've got to start with our defensive end position, with Quentin Moses and Charles Johnson. Quentin has certainly proved he's one of the better players in the league and in the country. And I think Charles Johnson is rapidly proving that he can be named in that kind of a (elite) group."
