Syracuse picks up first 2017 commit with Daewood Davis — Cuse Clicks

Possessing a size and speed combo that’s coveted by a boatload of programs on the recruiting trail, Syracuse’s coaching staff was brimming with joy when they received word that Daewood Davis bought into their vision and committed to their football program on Monday afternoon. Davis, a product of Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Somorset Academy Charter, just wrapped up his sophomore year and is armed with additional offers from the likes of Louisville, NC State, Nebraska, Marshall, Utah and Florida Atlantic.

Penn State is in the early stages of recruiting junior-to-be running back A.J. Dillon. The Lawrence Academy (Mass.) standout’s current offers include: Virginia, Boston College, UMass, UConn, Syracuse and Temple. However, the young running back worked out with PSU head coach James Franklin and running backs coach Charles Huff during Friday’s camp in Happy Valley.

In the past two weeks, the Syracuse coaching staff wasn’t ready to accept a commitment from one New Jersey linebacker and directed another elsewhere. With likely only one linebacker spot left in its Class of 2016, the Orange has been selective. And on Monday, SU received a pledge from one of its top targets, Camden (N.J.) High School outside linebacker Dymelle Parker. Parker announced the decision on Twitter.
