With one year left, teammates and coaches think that Johnnie Morant has turned the corner. The necessary evidence for that conclusion is there.

Perhaps motivated by many of his peers from his recruiting class going to the NFL, Morant's attitude is noticeably different. Described as an "all-smiles guy," by teammate Thump Belton, Belton has put a face on the new Morant.

"It ain't no smiles anymore," Belton said.

Besides Morant, the Orangemen have a deep unit including Jamel Riddle, and juniors Jared Jones (213 yards, two touchdowns) and Andre Fontenette (12.7 yards per catch).

Riddle, the team's best receiver last year, compiled 41 catches for 626 yards.

More on Morant and the rest of the unit can be found in this month's issue of The Juice.
