this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
The Baltimore Sun is reporting that 4* (Rivals) LB Javarie Johnson, who committed to Maryland (after previously committing to Miami) is leaving the school.
He had enrolled early and was taking classes there, [EDIT: Removed idea that he could transfer without sitting out as it is unclear if spring practices would eliminate this possibility]. Apparently he was still around some bad influences in his hometown area of DC and was having academic issues.
Before commiting to Miami his final 4 was: Miami, Maryland, Michigan, MSU (not nec. in that order).
Obviously character + academic issues is a fine line to walk these days, but it could potentially lead to something. More on it on my blog below if you care. :)
