Three-star athlete Adrian Killins Jr. took his official visit to Syracuse over the weekend, and recapped it with Scout.com’s Mike McAllister. The Mainland (Fla.) prospect will make his decision on signing day, though he is currently a UCF commit. Syracuse is viewing him as a receiver.

Another recruit visiting over the weekend was Peach State defensive end Josh White. The three-star defensive end currently holds offers from Maryland, Purdue and Mississippi State. Syracuse has not offered yet, and it will likely depend on what happens with…

… 2016 Syracuse defensive end commit Jaquwan Nelson, who took an official visit to Georgia over the weekend, and posted several pictures on Twitter. Nelson committed on his official visit to SU earlier in the month after being committed to Miami at one point.
