We’re off with the recruiting links after today until next week, so I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas (for those of you who observe it). On to today’s links…
2016 Syracuse quarterback commit Lindsey Scott is still fully on board with the Orange, says Rivals.com’s Scott Brown. The Louisiana product told Brown that he is scheduling an official visit to Syracuse, which will likely take place the weekend of Jan. 15 or 22.
West Bloomfield (MI) High athlete Evan Foster received an offer from Syracuse, he tweeted on Thursday morning. Foster had originally committed to Bowling Green in late June, but decommitted earlier in the month when the coaching staff left for Syracuse. Scout.com’s Mike McAllister writes that Syracuse is recruiting him as a defensive back, and is working with him to schedule an official visit. Scout has him rated as a two-star recruit, and he also holds offers from Purdue, Toledo and Eastern Michigan.
2016 defensive end prospect Joshua Uche is being pursued by South Carolina, writes Phil Kornblut for The State. Uche has scheduled visits to Miami, UNC and Florida, but says that the situation is still in flux. Syracuse did an in-home visit with him earlier in the month.
And to close for today, best wishes to former Syracuse defensive end Ron Thompson. He declared for the NFL draft on Wednesday. Have a great holiday, everyone.
