Recruiting Roundup: Elite 2015 TE Chris Clark commits to Syracuse

Happy Friday, everyone! Let’s get to our recruiting links for the day…

Syracuse picked up a huge commitment from the No. 1 tight end in the class of 2015 on Thursday, reports Scout.com’s Mike McAllister. Chris Clark committed to the Orange after he had narrowed his decision down to SU and Pittsburgh. Clark said he picked the Orange “because of how comfortable I feel there.”

SNY.tv’s very own, Adam Zagoria, reports that Syracuse is showing interest in 2019 big man Maxwell Lorca. The 6’9″ forward from Northfield Mount Hermon (NY) already has an early offer from Penn State.

2017 wing Jordan Tucker was originally supposed to take a visit to Maryland, but now won’t, Zagoria also reports. He holds offers from Connecticut, Arizona, Syracuse and St. John’s, among others. Tucker and several other Syracuse recruits, including Tyus Battle, Nick Richards, and Mohamed Bamba will all play in the Sharette Dixon Classic later in October.

Battle’s brother, Khalif Battle, will visit Syracuse this weekend for Orange Madness, writes Syracuse.com’s Donna Ditota. They will be joined by commit Matt Moyer. Among other recruits who may attend include Cameron ReddishTaurean ThompsonJahvon QuinerlyQuade Green and Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree.

To end off for the week, I wanted to wish former hoops star Dion Waiters the best of luck as he works out a contract extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder. That’s all for today. Have a great weekend!
