Q&A with Duke Johnson

Read on to see what junior running back Duke Johnson is saying about yesterday's scrimmage, in which he had a long touchdown run.

On the offense being mid-season form:
I wouldn’t say mid-season. I’d say opening season. It was nice getting back out there and live situations. We got into the ice tub and I woke up feeling better than yesterday.

On what he took from it:
We showed signs of being good and also bad signs. We came back out today to clean things up.

On the number of passes he expects to catch:
I haven’t been given a number. Whatever number is fine with me. I know they want to get my in space and the ability to catch passes.

On his relationship with Jake Heaps:
It’s fine. We talk, hang out in the locker room. We’ll talk about things. Our relationship off the field is the same on the field.

On Brad Kaaya’s first two weeks:
The first week and a half, two weeks, Brad doesn’t act like a freshman quarterback the way he handles the plays, his checks, and how he reads defenses. He might not do it as well as Jake but he handles it exceptionally well for a freshman.
