Georgia football podcast: UGA No. 1 in recruiting again after Jermaine Johnson commitment

Beginning of the show: The nation’s No. 1 junior college prospect — outside linebacker Jermaine Johnson — committed to Georgia Thursday night resulting in the Bulldogs returning to the No. 1 spot in the recruiting rankings again after finishing in that position at the end of the 2018 cycle in February. I’ll discuss on today’s show why UGA fans should be excited about Johnson, and the Bulldogs’ ongoing recruiting battle with Alabama.

10-minute mark: I congratulate former UGA wide receiver Javon Wims on a sterling NFL debut with the Chicago Bears in Thursday night’s Hall of Fame Game vs. the Baltimore Ravens, and share the latest edition of the Kroger Click List Checklist.
