Cedar Grove offensive lineman Netori Johnson has been active on the recruiting trail this month. The rising junior committed to Alabama in a bit of a surprise on June 1. Then he went to UGA camp last Friday and proved to be not only the top lineman, but the top overall performer at the 7-on-7 event.

That was part of a day which saw he pick up an offer from UGA in the process and the coaching staff even brought up his Alabama commitment.

“They just kept telling me to stay home and be a Dawg,” Johnson said.

So what’s all the fuss about? Well, the 6-foot-5, 330-pounder has very good feet for a young man of his size and stature. See how he performed in one-on-one lineman drills below in this AJC.com video:
