With guard Tyler Ennis already confirmed and big man Chinonso Obokoh committing on Monday, the Syracuse Orange added the third piece of the 2013 puzzle when 6-foot-7 forward B. J. Johnson committed to play for the school, according to the Post-Standard.

And just like that, the Class of 2013 has gone from one player to three.

With guard Tyler Ennis already confirmed and big man Chinonso Obokoh committing on Monday, the Syracuse Orange added the third piece of the 2013 puzzle when 6-foot-7 forward B. J. Johnson committed to play for the school, according to the Post-Standard.

Johnson made an official visit to Syracuse this past weekend. He told the coaches on Saturday that he would accept their offer of a scholarship.

Johnson received a three-star rating from Rivals, three-star rating from Scout and a three-star rating from ESPN.

Last season, Johnson averaged 15.8 points and led the Lower Merion Aces to a 29-4 record. He chose the Orange over offers from Rutgers, Temple and Villanova.

And so, the Orange now have a quality recruit at each core position for 2013. The coffers remains full and Boeheim has some more guys that fit his mold and program.
