The four-star cornerback from Virginia is expected to make his decision later today.The current favorite for Johnson is Penn State, which makes sense considering his recent visit with the program.Following his visit in Happy Valley, Johnson went on Twitter to announced that he’s changing his decision date. He originally expected to make his decision on July 4, but ultimately moved up the date two days earlier.The four schools remaining in the hunt for Johnson are Penn State, Ohio State, NC State and Texas A&M. They’ll find out whether or not they’re landing the talented defensive back very soon. Johnson revealed on Twitter that his commitment will come later this evening.Check it out:I’m committing at 7 today !— (J3)Joseph Johnson lll (@joseph_johnson7) July 2, 2019Johnson is the No. 33 cornerback in his class, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. The site’s internal rankings have him as No. 20 recruit at his position.Penn State is on a recruiting hot streak lately, and receiving a commitment from Johnson would help bolster their future secondary.The only defensive back that Penn State has a commitment from at the moment is Ji’Ayir Brown. Perhaps that’ll change around 7  p.m. EST, when Johnson announces where he’ll play college football.last_img read more

Rabat – The United Nations General Assembly adopted by overwhelming majority a resolution that rejects Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.Ahead of the vote, which took place Thursday, Trump had threatened to cut aid to UN members who would vote against his decision.“They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care.” His threats fell short of deterring the overwhelming majority of member states from voting for the resolution and calling on the U.S. to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, including 28 countries from the EU.Germany, which had previously refrained from taking positions related to Israel, also voted for the resolution.Only nine countries voted against, including the United States and Israel, Micronesia, Togo, Palau, Marshall Islands, Honduras, Nauru and Guatemala.Five EU states and Canada were among the 35 countries to abstain from voting.In his speech following the vote, Israel’s UN ambassador Danny Danon said UN members who backed the resolution were being manipulated. “You are like puppets pulled by your Palestinian masters.”Meanwhile U.S ambassador to the UN indicated that the vote disrespects her country.“I must also say today: When we make generous contributions to the UN, we also have expectation that we will be respected. “What’s more, we are being asked to pay for the dubious privileges of being disrespected.”“If our investment fails, we have an obligation to spend our investment in other ways. The United States will remember this day,” she added Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas described the result as a “victory for Palestine.” read more
