Several Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian Academy recruits have recently made their college decisions, and earlier today defensive tackle Isaiah Johnson joined this group. After receiving his offer earlier this week, Johnson decided that Syracuse was going to be his future home.
"I decided to go there because I had a great talk and relationship with Coach Henderson," said Johnson. "I love how they treated me at their camp, their graduation rate is great and people that graduate from there have great jobs."
The interaction Johnson had with the coaching staff at the recent summer camp helped with his decision.
"They taught me great techniques and how to use my speed," said Johnson
Johnson's family agreed with his decision.
"They loved it because it's not too far and not too close," said Johnson, who is 6-foot-5 and 270-pounds.
Besides Syracuse, Johnson also had offers from Temple, Hawaii, Massachusetts and Marist. While his recruiting process was just beginning to take off, he is happy that it is now over.
"It feels great," said Johnson. "It's a huge relief off of my shoulders."
Now with his decision complete, Johnson will turn his attention to his upcoming senior season.
"Off-season training is great," said Johnson. "Flash Training is a step ahead of every program in the nation, so I feel as though I'll be well prepared."
Johnson will play defensive end and tight end this season at Eastern Christian Academy, and was recruited by Syracuse as a defensive end.
