Andre Johnson Inducted into University of Miami H.O.F.

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame. Eight former Hurricanes were inducted into the Hall of Fame and former NFL players Clinton Portis and Lamar Thomas were among the group.

This was the release on Johnson from Hurricane

In 2002, Andre Johnson caught 52 passes for 1,092 yards – an astonishing 21 yards-per catch average – and nine touchdowns, joining UMSHoF member Eddie Brown (1,114 yards in 1984) as one of only two Miami receivers to gain over 1,000 yards in a season.  His 193 yards (on six catches) against Virginia Tech in 2002 is the fourth-most receiving yards in a game by a Hurricane.  He ended his career with 92 catches for 1,831 yards, the fifth-highest total and his 20 touchdowns are tied for third-most. Johnson caught seven passes for a career-high 199 yards and two scores to lead Miami to its fifth national title. For his efforts, he was named the 2002 Rose Bowl Game Most Valuable Player. A 2002 All-BIG EAST first team member, Johnson also ran track, winning BIG EAST titles in 2002 in the indoor 60-meter and 100-meter dashes.
