Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst was asked Monday how Miami’s offense changed once star running back Duke Johnson was injured.
“He was a really good player,” Chryst said. “But as you play different teams you can’t be sure how exactly they change. If you say they’re every bit as dangerous now, then it seems like you’re saying he wasn’t a good player. But I think they still present all the same problems to us now. In the run game and throw game they’re explosive, and they have some good players across the board offensively.
“I thought he was one of the top backs in the league, and nobody wants to lose their best players. But I think they’re every bit as dangerous now.”
Offensive tackle Kc McDermott of Palm Beach Central High and receiver Braxton Berrios from Leesburg Road High in Raleigh, N.C., signed financial aid paperwork Monday. They’ll be graduating early and arriving on campus in time for spring practice. The Palm Beach Post first reported the news.
