Isaiah Johnson To Transfer To South Carolina
Johnson posted a photo of himself in a South Carolina Gamecocks helmet and jersey inside of the South Carolina locker room.
Johnson will be playing closer to his hometown of Cary, North Carolina. He will be eligible to play immediately in 2015 because he is a graduate transfer and figures to provide a big boost to the Gamecocks secondary that was shredded at time in 2014, including the 511 yards passing given up in the opening game against Texas A&M.
Johnson had 75 tackles in 2014, which was second on the team behind only Ben Heeney. Johnson also had an interception, 2 pass breakups, and forced a fumble. Johnson started all 24 games in the last two seasons while being named as the Big 12’s Defensive Newcomer of the Year in 2013.
Johnson was a two-year starter at Kansas after starting all 24 games over the past two seasons.
