Will it Come down to the hat trick for Patrick Johnson

Pompano Beach Ely High School DB Patrick Johnson took an official visit to Florida this past weekend.

His father, Patrick Sr., says his son remains a Hurricane commitment.

"Probably just Miami will be his only other visit, but he might also visit LSU or USC," Patrick Sr. said. "He's still a Miami commitment. He just wants to get out and see different things."

Dad says his son is an "80 percent" done deal for the Canes right now.

And he says his son is "leaning toward" making a public decision on national television during the Army All-American Bowl.

"He's going to have hats in front of him – will probably fully commit then," Patrick Sr. said. "We're trying to decide if he'll do it that way. He's probably going to fully commit then. If it's Miami he'll just say it twice, nothing wrong with saying it twice, picking up a UM hat and showing the world."

Dad said the UF visit impressed them.

"The neatest thing was the team walk when they first get off the bus and walked into the stadium," he said. "That was cool. And the fans, the way the place is is very impressive."


Patrick Sr. says he's leaving a final decision in the hands of his son.

"He likes it at Miami," dad said. "It's his decision. I'm just trying to back him up. I want him to make the right decision. Right now he just wants to get out there and see different things.

With Time to think, WR solidifies Commitment


Miami Booker T Washington High School Davon Johnson has had a couple of days to mull things over since returning from an official visit to Florida.

While he says "I was swayed" during the time in Gainesville, he says "I'm still a Hurricane as of now. I'm a commitment. I'm still a strong commitment."

At the same time he says "It's still early in the process."

And he says he plans to take an official visit to the University of South Florida Jan. 19.

"I just like that it's an upcoming school, the offensive scheme they're running," he said.

Johnson says an overriding concern he has is UM's passing offense.

"I've been concerned about the offense because, as a receiver I want the ball in my hands," he said. "I talked to coach (Marques) Mosely last night. He said they have a lot of spreads, that they have to have enough receivers to do what they want to do.


"He was telling me to keep my head focused, know who you're going to play with this year, the class they're bringing in, not to worry about the offense, that they have enough receivers to spread it out."

So what are the chances Johnson signs with the Canes in February?

"It's an 80 percent chance right now," Johnson said.

Canes Getting Healthy, Coach Returns to Team


UM head coach Randy Shannon said today linebacker Darryl Sharpton and defensive tackles Dwayne Hendricks, Teraz McCray and Antonio Dixon are expected to play against the Aggies on Thursday night. All either missed or were limited in the last game.

"We got all those guys back," Shannon said.

Someone else that's back: Running backs coach Tommie Robinson.

He left the team the week before the FIU game – his father was dying, and when he found out he says Shannon gave him immediate permission to leave the team.

Robinson got to his father, who died the next day.

"It was tough, real tough," said Robinson, who returned to UM yesterday.

Robinson had never missed a game before.

"First time in my life," he said. "I've been coaching ball over 20 years, never missed a game. I didn't even get a chance to watch the FIU game - it was ESPNU and my parents don't have that service. I was on my little phone, on the Internet with play by play. They would say, `Kyle Wright incomplete.' They wouldn't say, `Jerrell Mabry missed the ball.' I didn't know what was going on.

"I tell you what surprised me – I didn't know Shawnbrey (McNeal) was going to play. When I looked at my phone it said Shawnbrey carried the ball. I was like, `Wow, what are they doing?' I was really happy to see he carried the ball, he and Lee Chambers. Lee got a kickoff return. It was a little different for me missing games, missing practice and being around here. But that's part of life. It's something we all have to do. I really missed it. I'm just happy to be back."

* Shannon says he isn't talking to any potential transfers. He says they have to get a release before he'll talk to them.

With rumors swirling around Deonte Thompson possibly transferring - despite some media outlets that have debunked the possibility - Shannon was asked if he would accept any transfers.

"It depends who it is," Shannon said. "I don't worry about things like that right now."

* Shannon said there is no update on Robert Marve, who is working the scout team and taking snaps with a soft cast on his left wrist with a glove over that, or on Jermaine McKenzie, who is not yet cleared to wear a helmet and practice (he is recovering from a neck injury).

* LB Glenn Cook is out of a protective boot, but there is no word on when he might return to practice.

* Patrick Nix's wife is expecting their fourth child - the due date is tomorrow.

Canes High on 4 Star DB's List


Waco (TX) High School safety Victor Johnson is busy concentrating on his senior season.

So his coach, Johnny Tusa, has asked that he not do media interviews.

But Tusa does say the Canes are among the frontrunners for the talented 6-foot-1, 170-pounder.

"He likes Miami, he likes Oklahoma State and he likes Texas A&M - those three for sure," Tusa said. "Miami, he's said that it's intriguing to him."

The Hurricanes have offered Johnson a scholarship, and defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff is recruiting him.

"Coach McGriff was at Baylor, so there's that connection there," Tusa said.

Johnson hasn't set up any official visits yet, according to Tusa.

And that's the way Tusa likes it.

He doesn't like his players making early commitments.

"We're very much opposed to early commitments because that harms us," Tusa said. "If you knew you weren't going to work your job, that you already had another job two or three months down the road, sometimes you'll be looking too futuristically. And let's say you have a little injury, you're not going to want to risk that. We've seen that work against us."

Tusa knows whatever program lands Johnson will have a tremendous prospect.


"He's just an energetic, talented young man that enjoys playing the game and plays it at a rapid pace," Tusa said. "He has the motor of a kid that played for us, plays for the Chiefs, (linebacker) Derrick Johnson."

A good example came this past week: "He came in on a punt and knocked the personal protector back to the punter," Tusa said. "The next time the personal protector kind of dodged him. There's incident after incident. One thing about an outstanding player – what is extraordinary becomes ordinary. You almost take that for granted.

"He'll always `Oh, wow' you. And especially on special teams because he's a very unselfish person that excels not only at safety, but trying to block punts and running back kicks."

Academics could factor in for Johnson, as he is likely to be a borderline qualifier.

"To his credit he is trying to focus really hard on his academics," Tusa said.

Man that would be dope as fu*k if Florida can steal Patrick Johnson, it would obviously be the wiser decision for him to go to UF.

Guess Hill's announcing at 6:30 on ESPNU now. There's a great chance the Gators could sway PJ or land Harris when alls said and done.

Woooo! We whooped an a.ss. Whole game was good. Cooper is really coming out man. He is one fast kid. Our defense was so nice tonight too. Even Kyle Wright looked good and so did our receiving core, finally. I liked the use of tight ends too, we need more of that. Great game. I think this may get us ranked.
