Alabama commit Netori Johnson was supposed to visit UGA this past weekend for the South Carolina game.
But the 4-star offensive lineman from Cedar Grove had a change of plans with UGA for a reason that will make Alabama fans happy.
“My first game couldn’t be a Georgia game,” Johnson told the AJC’s DawgNation.com. “It had to be an Alabama game. I didn’t have a choice. I might go to a few more games, but I’m not sure. We play Friday nights and I’ll be tired, so I don’t really get out like that.”
Johnson previously told the AJC’s DawgNation that UGA was his lone No. 2 school, but that has changed — UGA and Auburn are now tied.
The 6-foot-5, 330-pounder is rated as Georgia’s No. 12 prospect for 2017.
In the video above, Johnson explains why his recruitment may not necessarily be over yet, why UGA and Auburn are now tied and the harsh message some Alabama fans have apparently told him after he flirted with some other colleges.
