Lyndell Gibson replaced Johnson as Mike linebacker number one during the North Carolina game last year. Gibson finished the season as starting Mike and Johnson played few snaps. The coaches thought they'd be able to transfer his athletic 6 foot 2 inch 230+ lb frame to defensive end, but he struggled against the run.
Patrick Terry was stuck on the depth chart below fellow junior flankers Danny Coale and Dyrell STRAIGHT BURNER Roberts.
It's rumored they'll both transfer to division 2 schools.
