Could Syracuse have a new coach by the end of the MAC championship this evening? Dino Babers statement to the media doesn’t exactly extinguish this possibility. With that in mind, let’s move to today’s recruiting links…
Waukesha (Wisc.) West offensive lineman Sam Heckel has reopened his recruitment in the wake of Scott Shafer being fired, reports Scout.com’s Allen Trieu. The 2016 offensive lineman had committed to Syracuse over the summer. “I will stay committed, but until the staff and head coach are not there, I will reopen my recruitment for the sake of my future.”
Alabama coach Avery Johnson and North Carolina’s Roy Williams were on hand to watch 2017 five-star wing Kevin Knox this week, reports 247 Sports’ Jerry Meyer. Knox holds an offer from Alabama but hasn’t received one yet from UNC. Syracuse, Auburn and Florida State are among the many other schools to offer.
Tampa (Fla.) Plant junior, Juwan Burgess, tells Scout.com’s Corey Bender that he mimics his game after NFL cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The 2017 four-star WR has no shortage of offers, including Clemson, Florida, FSU, Miami and Syracuse.
Three-star junior athlete Logan Rudolph of Northwestern High School in Rock Hill, S.C. picked up an offer from Tennessee earlier in the week, reports 247 Sports’ Ryan Callahan. He now holds 25 offers, including Michigan, Auburn, Kentucky and Syracuse.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
