VERBAL: 3-star Florida WR announces for WSU

IT WAS ON Sunday morning that three-star wide receiver Isaiah Johnson announced on his Twitter page that he was backing off his verbal pledge from Florida. And moments ago, the heavily touted WR made another announcement on his Twitter account, this time providing big news for Cougar fans.

And that news is that he'll don a crimson uniform in 2016.

Moments ago, Johnson, a 6-3, 205-pounder, let the Twittersphere know that he has committed to Washington State and will head to the Palouse for the spring semester.

Throughout his recruitment, Johnson has been committed to Florida, Miami and Louisville, making WSU the fourth school he has given his verbal pledge to.

In addition to those schools mentioned, the three-star prospect also held offers from North Carolina State, South Carolina, West Virginia, Auburn, Mississippi State, North Carolina and others.

Johnson hails from William T. Dwyer High School, the same school that produced current WSU freshman wide receiver Tavares Martin. Johnson took an official visit to WSU on Dec. 4 and prior to that trip, he told Scout.com's Corey Bender that he was very much looking forward to reconnecting with Martin out on the Palouse.

And now, the two will be teammates running routes in Mike Leach's Air Raid offense beginning this spring. 

"Measuring in at 6-foot-4, 215-pounds, Johnson is a fluid athlete with nice size for the position. Johnson, who could eventually transition into a tight end, has a long frame that can pack on an additional 15-20 pounds without losing much athleticism moving forward," Bender said. "The wide receiver is a load to bring down and runs crisp routes for such a big athlete. Johnson does a good job of extending plays by planting his foot in the grass and making defenders miss. Johnson is a matchup nightmare for defensive backs with speed to get behind the secondary for lengthy gains."
