Texas branching out, recruiting in Georgia

AUSTIN, Texas -- There has never been a football player from the state of Georgia that started his college career as a Longhorn. At least not dating back to 1947, which is the first year Texas started keeping track of its players’ hometowns on its official website.

The list of players from Georgia who transferred in isn’t much bigger -- you can count them on one hand with a few fingers to spare -- making former Longhorns punter Greg Johnson part of a very small fraternity.
