Youngstown Cardinal Mooney senior linebacker Andrew Armstrong decommitted from Bowling Green, and may be looking toward Syracuse, writes’s Bill Greene. He also holds offers from Cincinnati and Wake Forest. “I would definitely consider Syracuse, because I have a great relationship with that staff,” Armstrong said.

Camden (N.J.) defensive end Jamal Holloway appears to be fully on board with the new Syracuse coaching staff. He tweeted a picture of his in-home visit with the Syracuse coaching staff on Thursday, calling the visit “excellent.”

One basketball note for today:’s very own, Adam Zagoria, writes that Syracuse is among the schools pursuing elite 2017 guard Trevon Duval the most. The other schools Duval mentioned include Arizona, Maryland, Louisville, Villanova, and Baylor.

We close on a sad note, as we send our thoughts and prayers to NBA legend Dolph Schayes, who passed away earlier today after a long battle with cancer. He was a member of the 1955 NBA champion Syracuse Nationals and a 12-time All-Star. His son, Danny, played in the NBA from 1981 to 1999 and also played for the Orangemen. That’s all for today. See you all tomorrow.
