Various media outlets have confirmed that Miami Hurricanes sophomore running back Storm Johnson will transfer to UCF in the summer. Johnson, who was heavily recruited by the Knights out of high school, will have to sit out this year due to transfer rules, but will compete for the Knights' starting running back role in 2012.
Miami head coach Al Golden granted Johnson's request to transfer, but prevented him from going to any ACC or SEC school and any non-conference opponent. The Knights were the most logical transfer option for Johnson.
The Loganville, Ga., native was rated as Rivals' No. 7 running back in the nation out of high school and the No. 8 prospect overall out of Georgia. Johnson should provide an immediate upgrade to the offense and will benefit the scout team while sitting out this year.
