Suspended Miami LB Eddie Johnson no longer enrolled in school

After suspending Eddie Johnson early last month, Miami head coach Al Golden stated he was “hopeful” for the linebacker’s return to the team.

While that may ultimately be the case, those prospects certainly aren’t looking good at the moment.

Citing a UM official, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Tuesday that Johnson is no longer enrolled in classes at the school.  That news comes on the heels of the release of the Hurricanes’ official roster, of which Johnson was not a part.

The team has not given any new update as to Johnson’s status, although the paper writes that this latest development points to Johnson’s career being “on life support.”

Johnson missed two games last season for disciplinary reasons.  His latest suspension was the result of an “accumulation of undisclosed issues.”

When Johnson was on the field last season, the redshirt freshman made an impact.  He led the ‘Canes with 7.5 tackles for loss and finished fourth in tackles with 59 despite playing in just 10 games.  He started eight of those contests.

    No more classes. NOW, he will not have a chance to become a Phi Beta Kappa member.

    That is not good. He was a really good talent and nice surprise last season. I hate seeing kids unable to pull out of the mess.

    That place is a trainwreck. What will the 117th defense improve to? 73rd? Smart money says they don’t crack the top 50. More suffering ahead. But the incredibly soft schedule will probably pad all these numbers and get cane fan all up in a lather over nothing. Only to get hammered when they meet up with a real team in a bowl. UM’s bowl record last five years? 0-3-2. PATHETIC.

    Miami has passed on playing in a bowl the last two years, so how did you work out that 0-3-2 record? And they had two ties? Your knowledge of college football is exceeded only by the worth of your USF degree.

    Canetic and 35: Easy gentlemen. Lets settle this like big boys.

    At least we can agree on one thing; these are not your father’s Hurricanes because those sneaky bastards got away with everything! Hookers, assault rifles, money! This team can’t fart without getting hit with a violation.
