I wanted to start today by wishing Syracuse legend Jim Brown a very happy 80th birthday! On to today’s recruiting links…

Four-star quarterback Kasim Hill from St. John’s (DC) will be visiting Syracuse this Saturday, writes’s Brian Dohn. He also recently visited Maryland, and says he has no other visits scheduled as of right now. Hill holds offers from Michigan, Mississippi State, Michigan State and Penn State, among others.

Marcus Bowman, a defensive end from Frederick Douglass (MD), tweeted on Thursday morning that he had received offers from Marshall and Syracuse. Take a look at his HUDL highlights if you have the time.
