Good luck to the Syracuse women’s basketball team in the ACC Tourney! On to today’s recruiting links…

Hollywood (Fla.) running back Shaun Shivers already has plenty of offers, including Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kencuky and LSU. On Thursday evening on Twitter, he released an early favorite list that included three schools: Syracuse, West Virginia and Georgia Tech. But he also said “things can change,” which makes sense since he is a 2018 prospect.’s Chad Simmons caught up with Chaminade (Fla.) wide receiver Daewood Davis. The 2017 prospect committed to Syracuse under the Scott Shafer era, but has continued to be heavily recruited by Dino Babers’ staff. While Davis says he’s remained committed to Syracuse, but says he will listen other schools.
