Believes he will play Sunday Johnson (ankle) said "I'm confident I'm going to play" in Sunday's game against Houston during a media session Saturday, Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press reports.
Impact Johnson suffered an ankle injury in the closing seconds of Rutgers' win over Clemson on Friday, but his comments make for good news regarding his availability Sunday. Along with scoring two points, the big man recorded 10 rebounds, three steals and three blocks against Clemson. His presence would make Rutgers more formidable inside against a strong Houston team. If he's unable to go, though, freshman Cliff Omoruyi would likely be thrust into a significant role down low Sunday.
