ATHENS - Georgia already knew it would be without one member of its 33-member signing class this year. Now you can make it two.
Receiver Rico Johnson, who was not expected to play this year barring injuries ahead of him, tweeted on Monday that he had not been cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
"Unfortunately NCAA didn't take my two online classes but I'm still rockin wit DawgNation to the death of me see yall at the top!" Johnson tweeted.
That most likely means Johnson will head to a prep school to get eligible by next year - as current freshman defensive end Leonard Floyd did last year - or he could go the junior-college route, which would take longer.
Never miss a local story.
Johnson was a consensus three-star recruit out of Swainsboro High School. He was rated the 24th-best overall prospect in Georgia by 247Sports, and the nation's No. 42-ranked receiver.
The only other player from the 2013 signing class known to not qualify is DeVondre Seymour, who is headed to prep school. Seymour, an offensive lineman and the son of former Georgia star Richard Seymour, was also a consensus three-star prospect.
