Stafon Johnson heading to the NFL not quite a done deal...

Pete Carroll disputes the report that Stafon Johnson is headed to the NFL...

From CFB Talk.

This afternoon following practice, however, head coach Pete Carroll said no decision had been made.

Carroll, who speaks regularly with the injured tailback, said Johnson will apply for a draft evaluation and is planning on making an announcement this week about his playing status. Johnson suffered a life-threatening throat injury while weightlifting on Sept. 28 but has now been medically cleared to resume working out.

Carroll also added that whatever Johnson decides, "I'm going to support him."

To me the draft evaluation is a simple formality. I still have a hard time seeing Stafon coming back to SC.

Why take the risk?
