2019 Projections: The defensive backfield is pretty crowded so it seems like John will see scout team duty this season for the Syracuse Orange

How Did He Get Here?: His father Howard also attended Syracuse so it seems like that influenced the decision to attend.

What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: No ratings

Money Quote: From a high school petition to implement spring dress code early, John had this to add and as someone who dealt with twelve years of school dress code I nod in agreement.

“I hate dress code.”
