Will Miami transfer D J Johnson follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City and the Washington Football program?
Trying to find his way is a phrase that could describe many of us. But in NCAA, that phrase describes a former Miami Hurricaine player. You see, he plays on the east coast. Unfortunately, he hails from Sacramento, California, and he would like to play closer to home. Fortunately, the Washington Football team plays in Seattle Washingon, which is 2,363 miles closer to home than Miami, Florida.
That young man seeking a way to get closer to home is none other than former Miami Hurricaine defensive end D.J. Johnson. We had discussed the rumors of Washington Husky interest in the young man about a year ago, and those whispers then seem to be valid discussions now. The reason for the interest in coming west has emerged, and it’s a matter of family health concerns:
That struggle to be close to loved ones is unfortunate, and my heart goes out to the young man who wants to be near to those dearest to him. In response, he needs the opportunity to do so in a Pac-12 school.
