Ex-Miami RB Storm Johnson looking at another in-state school

Ramon Buchanan Storm Johnson

After a couple of months of rumor and speculation, Storm Johnson decided to take his leave of the Miami football program in the middle of last month and ply his football wares elsewhere.

Nearly four weeks after that not-so-unexpected decision, another school in the football-rich state of Florida may have an interest in adding the former Hurricanes running back.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Johnson will visit UCF on Wednesday as the back attempts to figure out the next step in his football career.

It had been reported in March that Johnson, along with five of his teammates,would be suspended for the Hurricanes’ season opener.  A month later, it was reported that Johnson was involved in an incident that allegedly that included police officers and non-legal herb, not necessarily in that order.

Following those reports, it had been rumored that Johnson could be facing a multiple-game suspension for being a repeat violator of team rules, although the school never confirmed the initial suspension much less rumors that involved multiple contests being missed.

Johnson, who exited spring practice No. 3 on the depth chart, played in 10 games as a freshman in 2010, rushing for 119 yards on just nine carries.  Johnson came to the ‘Canes as a touted four-star recruit out of Loganville, Ga., and was the No. 7 RB in the country according to Rivals.com.

    of course he’d go to a lesser school… He doesnt wanna work for anything. He just wants to get by on natural talent

    So delusional. At this point UCF has a better program than Miami.

    Why is Maryland tagged in this?

    @Southpa: Because Maryland appears right above Miami in the little box we use to tag items, and I apparently checked the box next to the Terps instead of the ‘Canes. Thanks for the heads up. I will correct that right now…
