Offensive tackle Vincent Johnson (Sacramento/Christian Brothers) has lived in many different parts of the country. Born in Maryland, Johnson has also called Florida, Tennessee, Washington, D.C., and California home at various points. On Thursday night, when he and his father left for an unofficial visit to Iowa State, he didn’t know that he would be adding one more location to that list. But after he returned from the visit, Johnson knew he was ready, as he committed to head coach Paul Rhoads and the Cyclones.

“I am going to be an Iowa State Cyclone,” Johnson said. “I couldn’t be happier with my decision and it’s a huge weight off my shoulders. After taking the visit, I knew Iowa State was the place for me.”

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound offensive tackle said he did his best to go into the trip with an open mind, but it wasn’t long before it was made up.
