Aldarius Johnson Heading For NFL Draft As Miami Investigation Drags On

Suspended Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Aldarius Johnson has decided not to stick around and see whether the program allows him back on the field, the Miami Herald reports. As Barry Jackson writes:

Johnson is on track to graduate in December, and UM has shown no interest in reinstating him.

UM told him he needed to be more honest with the NCAA, but Johnson stuck by his original story, that he played in a bowling-for-dollars event with other players and Nevin Shapiro, but that he did not receive any of the other benefits that Shapiro alleged.

Johnson was sidelined on August 30 in such a way that made it clear he wouldn't be let back on the field along with eight other suspended Canes players. For one, they were all given a specific number of games to miss, which they've fulfilled. Johnson received the dreaded "indefinitely" tag.

A quick check of NFL mock draft outlets reveals Johnson is going to have some work to do if he wants to catch on with a pro team.
