Ames, IA — Considering the current state of affairs with ISU football I felt it was an opportune time to offer a fresh perspective on the Cyclones future. At present, the team can only account for 2 wins. Perhaps it’s best for fans to start looking towards next season and begin learning a bit about the newest batch of recruits – specifically, wide receiver Josh Johnson.
It is easy to feel optimistic about the trajectory of the program once you examine Josh Johnson’s highlight reel on Hudl. Johnson is athletic enough to play on both sides of the ball, a hallmark of a future superstar. Josh told us in a recent interview that he chose Iowa State becuase he believes he can make an immediate impact. Based on our time in the film room, we tend to agree.
By the looks of it, Cyclone fans won’t have to wait too long before they have something to brag about in Ames. We here at the Gazette think Johnson can be the biggest playmaker Iowa State has seen since Troy Davis.
