Switching to football,’s Mike McAllister reports that local product, 2017 CBA wide receiver Noah Jordan-Williams, will take a visit to Syracuse later this month. Jordan-Williams received an offer when Scott Shafer was the head coach, and he also holds an offer from Buffalo.

2017 Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) corner back Cedrick Dwyer has received offers from Wisconsin, Syracuse and Florida Atlantic, according to’s Corey Bender. “What I like about ‘Cuse is their coach’s (Nick Monroe) swagger. That’s the swag daddy right there,” Dort said.
