Draft Scout Jaquan Johnson News
09/05/18 - S Jaquan Johnson picked up where he left off from last season when he led Miami in tackles with a game-high 11 against the Tigers. He was Miami's leader in interceptions last year with four to go with his 96 tackles.
12/27/17 - Miami safety Jaquan Johnson grew tired of hearing other people talk about his future, and suggest that he should leave school early for the NFL. So he let them know their opinions didn't matter. He's coming back to Miami next season with eyes on competing for a national championship - and he thinks the final game of this season might be a springboard toward that goal. The Hurricanes (10-2) play Wisconsin (12-1) on Saturday in the Orange Bowl, in the capper of a season where Johnson became a breakout star for Miami. "I could sort of sense it in people's voice that they wanted me to just leave, but you know, I make my own decisions," Johnson said Wednesday. "My dad taught me that. My mom taught me that. And they tell me, make my decisions and live with it." And his decision? "I want to get my degree and play for a national championship," Johnson said. He's on target for the degree, and the Hurricanes - after about a decade of mediocrity - seem like they're getting closer to rejoining the ranks of the nation's elite programs. This is Miami's first trip to a New Year's Six bowl since going to the Peach Bowl in 2005, and if the Hurricanes beat the Badgers it'll be their first 11-win season since 2003. - AP College Football

Johnson led all Hurricanes with eight tackles (four solo) and wore the program's "turnover chain" yet again, this time on an interception of Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush early in the game. Johnson added one tackle for loss and broke up a pass. Johnson leads all Hurricanes with 66 tackles this season and has started every game. He ranks second on Miami's team with three interceptions. - ACC Football
