National Signing Day, Syracuse Recruiting: Isaiah Johnson, the Orange Honey Badger

Future Orange defensive lineman and everyone's best friend on Twitter Isaiah Johnson puts his Syracuse commitment in writing.

If you are a Syracuse fan on Twitter, odds are you've seen Isaiah Johnson (@IDVMJ_7) kicking around, and odds are his rampant excitement about SU has made him one of your favorite incoming Orange freshmen.

Stat Me: Isaiah Johnson is among the most physically impressive incoming players, with a 6'5", 270 pound frame that should allow him to play multiple positions along the defensive line.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 2*, Rivals - 2*, 247 - 3*, ESPN - 2*

Who's Crying?: UConn, Hawaii, UMass, Temple, Wake Forest

Money Quote:

Honestly, I don’t compare myself with anybody. I’m Isiah Johnson. I don’t compare myself to anyone because nobody is as unique as I am. I’m tall. I have quick feet. I know how to rush the passer fairly well, and there’s just a whole lot of things about me that I have to learn. I think I’m a late bloomer in this game called football.

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: Donnie Henderson is credited with his recruitment on Rivals, but Shafer was instrumental in holding on to Johnson.

Fun Fact: Isaiah plays for the Eastern Christian Academy Honey Badgers, which has a few decent football players this year
