USF HC Willie Taggart cited junior RB D'Ernest Johnson as one of the team's emerging leaders.
During Taggart's first two seasons with the Bulls, the team went 6-18. They began the 2015 season in similar dismal fashion, slogging out to a 1-3 start. And then, magic. South Florida went 7-2 down the stretch. Taggart credits the likes of the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Johnson for the turnaround. "Those guys that I named [as leaders] are the same guys that decided to come here because they wanted to turn it around," he said. Johnson was named to the Paul Hornung preseason watch list earlier this week. The award is handed out to the most versatile player in the country. Last season, he rushed 71 times for 307 yards, caught 25 passes for 346 yards and racked up a juicy 563 yards via 21 kick returns. That last mark works out to 26.8 yards per return. Marlon Mack is the lead back, here, but Johnson doesn't need 20 carries to make a positive impact. Sat, Jul 16, 2016 04:28:00 PM
