Can Syracuse get to a third straight bowl game?

Liam Smith, one of the top projected offensive linemen from New Jersey’s recruiting class of 2016, earned an offer from Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood, Tuesday. The 6-5, 285-pound Red Bank (N.J.) Catholic tackle discussed his trip to campus with “It feels great,” said Smith, who visited campus with his parents. “I’m just really honored to receive a scholarship. It’s humbling and it felt really good.” Coaches from Wake Forest, UConn, Penn State, Syracuse, Pitt and Boston College have visited Red Bank Catholic to inquire about Smith throughout the first half of the spring evaluation period.
