As I was eating my girlfriend's scrumptious oreo truffles today (I only had 14!), word began trickling around that WKU football had received a big time gift from Santa Claus himself.
That gift was a verbal commitment from Shaquille Johnson, a two-star tight end from Columbia High School (Lake City, FL).
The Hilltoppers had an advantage in recruting Johnson, who made an official visit during the weekend of October 19th.
If you'll recall, that was the weekend WKU suffered a heartbreaking 43-42 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe. But, despite the loss, Johnson apparently came away impressed with his visit and an intrigue to play in Bobby Petrino's offense.
Johnson becomes WKU's 20th commitment joining Joe Occhipinti, Devante Lee, Dishone Rimone, Johnny Delaney, Juwan Gardner, Marcus Ward, Devante Duclose, Kyle Jones, Marcus Adams, Ismael Aurismond, Jalen Edwards, Chris Huhn, Justin Martinez, Isaac Tanner, Dontravious Wilson, LaBront Scott and junior college signees Maurice Bennett, Connor Popeck, Dalton Patterson, and Lonnie Turner as part of the 2013 signing class.
And with that I say, "Merry Christmas to all Hilltopper fans! And to all a good night!" It's now time for me to take some Pepto, for obvious reasons (refer to first paragraph).
If your jonesing for a Shaquille Johnson highlight video, look no further. I got you covered...
