Congratulations young Mr. Johnson on your very wise choice of Syracuse University Football. Now bring some of that Tough Texas Football with you and put it on display in the ACC and help Syracuse University become a powerhouse. Go Orange!!!!!!!!!
Is it ok to still want what others are smoking? Asking for a friend.A very very nice get. If someone told us two years ago that the third year under HCDB that we would have a 10-3 record, (should be 12-1) and back to back very good recruiting classes and 7 - 4* recruits. We would have said, I want what you are smoking. lol But we did and it is so great to see the excitement back in SU football.
I don’t think he is as agile, but in terms of strength, speed and running with balance, this guy has some AJ Dillon in him. We haven’t had a big power back with his speed and ability to break tackles in a while. A long while.
He seems to run over or away from most defenders on his tape - and he's from Manvel, Texas (Manvel HS and Frenship HS). TexanMark, texascpa or someone from that state/area would know more about the competition level, but he looks tough to bring down.One thing I've noticed from his tape is his speed for a big guy. He hits the hole hard and doesnt get caught from behind. Very agile and quick feet. Gets hit and doest go right down. This kid is still all baby fat...when he gets into our strength and conditioning program our staff is going to create a monster! Similar to jarveon howard but might have more upside and I really like howard.
I look forward to when our OL is a little more optimized / a little stronger on the interior. Teams having to account for the pass are going to get gouged.we could make a living off have Jerome Smith type guys in this offense. we had so many plays the last 2 yrs where the RB lost the 1-1 battles in the holes and this guy hopefully is tougher to bring down.. Smith would have killed it in this offense. if you cant make people miss you have to be hard to bring down.
