Johnson Transfers to Syracuse
As reported by the Syracuse Post-Standard, former Iowa State forward Wesley Johnson has decided to transfer to Syracuse. "I liked what they had to offer . . . enough to end the recruiting,"Johnson said. "I really liked the school a lot. I got to meet the coaches and see the campus and the Carrier Dome. I felt good about it." The 6-7 sophomore, who left the Cyclones late last month, canceled his scheduled visits to Ohio State, Pittsburgh and West Virginia. His older brother, Craig Carroll, said the Orange had everything Johnson was looking for. "He lined up all the things he wanted and Syracuse met each one," Carroll said. "He knew what he wanted and Syracuse has that." Johnson averaged 12.4 points per game last season.
