Name: Sharod Johnson

Position: Wide Receiver

Year: (Redshirt) Junior

Weight: 182

2020 stats: Johnson played in ten games for the Syracuse Orange but had only four receptions for 41 yards.

2021 projections: As one of the most experienced wide receivers on the roster there’s an opportunity for Johnson to step into a bigger role this Fall. Can he emerge as a threat in the slot receiver role?

How’d he get here?: Chose to join the Orange over offers from UCF, Illinois, Purdue, Temple, App State and others.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars

Money quote: Johnson didn’t have to hesitate when Nick Monroe offered him a scholarship.

“That was always my dream school,” Johnson said Monday night. “He was giving me an opportunity that I’ve always been wishing for.”

Tweets of wonder: This tweet brought to you by a rash of injuries.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Dino will never turn down an opportunity to recommend a Denzel Washington film. Since Will Sherrod plays a part in “Flight” that’s what we’ll go with this year.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Johnson started following Syracuse after family friend Durrell Eskridge committed to the Orange.
