"I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.'" - President John F. Kennedy

Navy Lands First Recruit For 2010

A day after Navy's first press conference hosted by new offensive coordinator James Vernon, Navy landed it's first recruit of the 2010 recruiting season. 2 star recruit Isaac Johnson from West Milford, New Jersey announced today his intentions of attending the Naval Academy.

Navy had been high on his list from the very beginning so it was only a matter of time before he made his decision final.

Scout.com had this to say about the recruit:

"While lacking elite speed, Johnson has the speed to play with most collegiate level players. His coverage abilities definitely need work as he is a tad stiff when making the turn to run with receivers out of his backpedal.

His 6'1" 174lb frame could use the addition of some weight (which could enable him to make the transition to safety) and his tackling skills are definitely lacking, as he has poor form and tries too often to lay the ball carrier out instead of making the sure tackle. He doesn't have great jumping ability, but makes up for it in his pursuit angles and quickness to the ball."

"We're very excited to have him aboard," said coach Niumatalolo. "We think he had a lot of upside and could be a VERY valuable part of our team quickly."
