An interesting group of coaches could be the next coach at Syracuse. Let’s just hope that Mark Coyle makes the right decision as we move to today’s recruiting links…
The fallout from the firing of Syracuse coach Scott Shafer certainly will have an impact in the recruiting department. SU’s top commit in the class of 2016, Moe Neal, says to The Daily Orange’s Paul Schwedelson that he is still on board, for now. “Right now I’m still committed to Syracuse,” Neal said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do yet, but right now I’m still committed to Syracuse.”
Another one of SU’s prized recruits, Rex Culpepper, is also taking a wait-and-see approach. Stephen Bailey from Syracuse.com caught up with Culpepper’s father, Brad on Monday. “He still loves Syracuse and thinks it’s a good situation with regard to quarterback opportunity,” Brad Culpepper said.”
Scout.com’s Corey Bender caught up with 2018 running back Shaun Shivers. The Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna has put West Virginia atop his list, and also has Cincinnati and Syracuse in consideration.
Boston College is leading the way for 2017 RB Kevin Mensah, writes Eric Ruttger from Today’s U Sports. Syracuse and Northwestern are among the other schools checking in with Mensah. “I am just looking for a school, it’s not just about football, but they have to have good education too,” Mensah said.
One basketball note for today: Rivals.com’s Eric Bossi writes that five-star junior shooting guard Hamidou Diallo drew a huge crowd of high-majors in the National Prep Showcase. “I definitely notice when guys like Coach Calipari and Coach Ollie are out there,” Diallo said. Syracuse is among the many, many schools to offer Diallo.
That’s all for today! Enjoy your Tuesday before Thanksgiving, everyone.
