This week, the #2 ranked player in the class of 2021, Jojo Todaro (2021, D/LSM, Carey) decided to switch his verbal commitment from Syracuse to Johns Hopkins.
The Syracuse Orange snagged one of the poles on Long Island when Jojo was only in 8th grade, but Todaro decided that Syracuse might not be the best fit for him, so he decided to take his talents to Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays are getting one hell of a player. From a defensive perspective, Todaro has all the skills of a great long pole. He has great footwork, he’s a ground ball machine, and he’s very good in transition. The LILJ sat down with Todaro for an exclusive Q&A talking about his life changing decision.
