“He gave me a couple of stories about (Mike) Bobo since they were teammates,” Murray said after Thursday’s practice. “If Bobo starts yelling at me, I’ve got some stuff to say back to him. It was good. He was a great guy.”

Murray said Johnson “is a huge, huge receiver. He’s a big kid. (Matt) Stafford’s doing well with him, that’s for sure.”

Murray phoned Bobo, Georgia’s offensive coordinator, on the ride back to Athens to find out what he missed from the scrimmage.

“I wanted to be here,” Murray said. “I was actually begging to come back, but we thought it was best if I went there and represented the university.”
