The sensational running back said he has chosen the day after the Hurricanes’ bowl game against South Carolina to announce whether or not he will skip out on his senior season.
That date also happens to be the birthday of his mother, Cassandra Prophet-Mitchell. Johnson has said repeatedly that he plays football with hopes of providing for his family, but that his mother has also insisted he get his degree.
