Recruiting Roundup: Sean Riley, Malik Harrison get Syracuse football offers

Syracuse is just 1-9 against Pittsburgh in the last 10 meetings between the teams

Welcome back, Coach Boeheim. We missed you. On to today’s recruiting links…’s Scott Brown reports that 2016 3-star wide receiver Sean Riley received an offer from Syracuse. Riley committed to Arizona in March, but will be part of a large group of recruits taking an official visit to Syracuse on Jan. 16.

Two of his teammates from Narbonne (Ca.) will be joining him in WRs DeVaughn Cooper and Cedric Byrd, writes’s Mike McAllister. Cooper picked up an offer from Syracuse earlier in the week and is also an Arizona commit.

The following weekend (Jan. 22), Syracuse will be getting a visit from FAU commit Rashad Smith, reports’s Corey Bender. The Homestead (Fla.) linebacker is rated three stars by 247 Sports, and also holds offers from Bowling Green and Temple.

Columbus (OH) Walnut Ridge wide receiver Malik Harrison tweeted on Thursday that he had received an offer from Syracuse. The three-star athlete has offers from Indiana, Ohio State and Wisconsin, among others.’s Allen Trieu reports that Syracuse extended an offer to Detroit (Mich.) Catholic Central offensive lineman Tom Kowalkoski. However, the two-star offensive guard committed to Boston College in May, and declined the offer.

That’s all from the recruiting world for today. Could Tom Coughlin, the New York Giants former coach and Syracuse alum, be replaced by another SU alum, Doug Marrone? Things could get interesting quickly. Have a great weekend, everyone.
