Duke Johnson says he doubts he'll be back for spring football; Miami lands 2015 commitment

The Miami Herald's Safid Deen, who covers recruiting for us, bumped into Hurricanes running back Duke Johnson at a South Florida Express 7-on-7 practice Sunday morning.

Johnson, whose season came to an abrupt end when he broke his ankle against national champion Florida State, covered a few topics including whether or not he thinks he will be back on the field for spring practice.

"I don't believe I will," Johnson told Deen. "But if anything changes, you'll see. But I don't really think so."

Johnson guessed he was about "a month and a half to two months" away from participating to on field activities. Johnson said he is lifting weights.

Johnson said the rumors about coach Al Golden leaving for Penn State earlier this month were exactly what he and the team believed them to be "rumors."

Johnson said Golden never spoke to the team about the rumors.

"We didn't feel the need to," Johnson said. "We looked at it as just rumor as that's what it was. Nothing took place that we know of. Nothing really happened. He's still here. There was no need to have a talk with us. We're moving on to our season and don't have time for distractions such as that."

> Canesport.com and InsideTheU.com reported Sunday that Miami received a commitment from 2015 offensive lineman Kevin Feder of Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey. Feder (6-9, 305) is rated a three-star recruit according to both sites.

> Both sites also reported 2014 commitment Demetrius Jackson, a 6-4, 220-pound defensive end from Miami Booker T. Washington "solidified his commitment" to the Hurricanes after taking his official visit this weekend. Jackson reportedly canceled an official visit he had planned for Texas Tech next weekend.

$$$$$ to oregeron.....unless these DL Juco and others van really male some noise

Def will mever be good if ee continue to get zero pressure up front

To CaneFan72, San Fran, Seattle, New England, and Denver have something in common. Not only the best 4 teams in the NFL but they all primarily use the 3/4 versus the 4/3. Wonder why?

Golden and his coachs will be out coached every game but maybe 2 but clearly we need somebody who knows football, defense will be a joke again and coachs will blame everything on players which isnt the problem, its so defense coachs can get a check, Golden is just a BS artist who knows a little law and uses the verbage to fast step issues. The fans know there are plenty of quality coachs available, so does Donna and her monkey Blake. This year will bring program to its knees, and no it cant be fixed under current coachs.

Duke might be ready to play some by Neb game but we will still have no run game. We might be smart to use new guys and have 2 QBS ready to go, no doubt one will be injured.
