Aaron Sterling, Brad Johnson to miss remainder of season with injuries
COLUMBIA, S.C. — A rough 48-hour stretch for the Gamecocks continues to get worse.
After announcing that four members of the defense would be opting out of the rest of 2020, including star defensive backs Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu, interim head coach Mike Bobo also announced that defensive linemen Aaron Sterling and Brad Johnson will miss the final three games due to injuries.
Sterling, a senior from Atlanta, only appeared in four games this season. He totaled 0.5 sacks and nine total tackles after recording six sacks and 40 tackles last year.
Johnson, a junior from Pendleton, S.C., saw action in every game except Ole Miss this season. He finishes with eight total tackles on the year.
