Duke Johnson becomes UM's 1st All-American since 2005

The honors keep pouring in for University of Miami freshman Duke Johnson.

The ACC Rookie of the Year -- according to both the media and coaches -- was named second-team All-America by the Walter Camp Football Foundation Thursday.

He is UM's first major All-America selection since 2005 (Eric Winston, Brandon Meriweather, Kelly Jennings) and was one of only two freshmen named to the Walter Camp team, joining Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman candidate Johnny Manziel.

The Miami Norland product had one of the greatest freshman seasons in UM history, amassing 2,060 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns, while breaking Clinton Portis' 13-year-old school freshman rushing record with 947 yards. He ranked nationally with a 33.0 yards per kick return average. His 892 kick return yards were a single-season record and he also tied the school single-season mark with two kick return for touchdowns.

It's spelled "you're" and no sh*t players with more carries a game get more yards a game.

i am not looking at the wrong things.....our team is not mean at all..they play scared,unsure and timid. there are not any "tolbert bain" moments...brown,moss,blades,stubbs,fullington etc...all brought cockiness,trash talk, brashness and emotion to the field.....jimmy saw that and added the "us against the world" attitude which was gas to the fire (he was one smart mother....f..ker)..our boys today are "bankers and CEO's"......man do I miss the east end of the OB....golden says he wants to get back to the old days but how?..i say you have to drill down to what made UM great....we need some blood on our shirts and some penalties or we will just be another ncaa team....we are not alabama or nd or florida for that matter...we are different, lets stay that way...we are not going to get the top fla recruits so lets get the nastiest inner city boys possible and look the other way at acedemic scores..whos gonna know anyway...who cares what the grad % is....dont even talk about it

again your an idiot....more carries dosent equal more yards per game....

leveon bell - michigan state is ranked #3 in rushing yards per game with the most carries at 350...

dude know your stats before you act out your jerk off ways.....class 2016

Again, "you're" not a real person, "you're" only pretending to be a retarded UM fan to troll real fans into talking to you, and of f*cking course more carries equals more yards per game.

The stat you just gave shows that, but of course you knew that.

Tool.

ok sh..it for brains: (championships)

#1 Kadeem cary - 275 carries / 146.42 yards per game
#3 laveon bell - 350 carries / 137.33 yards per game

see more carries...less yards per game..opppssss

well got to and watch the sunday version of the miami hurricanes.....keep doing research...get smart, lol

Duke had the highest yards per carry of any of them, only a complete psychopath would think Duke Johnson's year was "weak"

the Bryant de-commit is a crusher at DT, we need alot of help on the D-line

first you have to fire dnofrio.....no defensive player will come with being 3rd from last in ncaa....13 sacks the whole year..pathetic.....top guys get 8/10 sacks alone....Um will not go from 13 to 45 sacks next year...expect the same results unless a change is made.....that is what everyone is overlooking....no pressure.....the bryant de-commit was huge....our linebackers cant get to the QB....each have only 1 sack...the defensive scheem is done....somebody has to have the balls do what garcia did at FIU....either he goes or you go.

They gotta hit the Jr colleges and find a gem at DT..

Props to Duke. He will only get better and will be a Heisman candidate.
