Early Impressions of Duke, Tracy, Lockhart, and Lewis at UM
Here is a cut and paste of part of Barry Jackson's column in the Miami Herald from today, Sunday, May 27. I cut and pasted rather than linked because most of the column is about the Heat, Fins, and Marlins.
### Teammates’ eyebrows were raised when running back Duke Johnson and cornerback Tracy Howard, both five-star recruits, arrived on UM’s campus a week ago. Maurice Hagens saw enough in one week to call Johnson “amazing.”
“Wow,” Eduardo Clements said of Johnson. “Last week, in 7-on-7s, he caught a pass, made a move, ran for a touchdown, and I’m like, ‘Damn.’ And Tracy is everything everyone makes him out to be – the footwork, breaking on the ball.” Several Hurricanes like what they have seen of receivers Malcolm Lewis and Robert Lockhart.
### Former players love how they have been welcomed back by Al Golden, but when Clements saw Clinton Portis on campus last week, “I was scared to say something. He’s a guy I look up to.” So good guy teammate Mike James got Clements on the phone with Portis, who counseled him about sharing carries with two other backs – the likely scenario for James, Clements and Johnson this fall.

Can't wait to see the impact these guys have. I am hearing good things about Bush as well.

Y'all can doubt if you want, but Howard will be a starter. He's a better prospect than Chick and Denzel, and they both started as freshman. And the corner position is worse than DE or LB were last year. There will be growing pains, but he'll also make some plays. IMO

Good read, I expect big things from Duke and Tracy this year.
