Recruiting Roundup: Bryce Bailey, Damion Abrams to visit Syracuse

As with the perennially successful basketball program, Orange football fans will only return in large numbers if the team regularly has high profile winning seasons

What an amazing weekend for Syracuse hoops, with the men’s and women’s teams advancing to the Sweet 16! On to today’s recruiting links…

2017 Indiana offensive lineman Bryce Bailey will be visiting Syracuse on Tuesday, reports’s Scott Brown. Bailey currently holds offers from Illinois, Iowa State and Purdue, among others.

Another prospect that is looking to take a visit in the spring is 3-star defensive lineman Romello Martin, Brown also reports. The Abraham Lincoln (NY) prospect offer list includes Florida State, Louisville, Miami, Nebraska and Rutgers.

2017 Jersey City (NJ) linebacker Damion Abrams will be among those visiting, as well, he said on Twitter. According to 247 Sports, he doesn’t have any offers yet, but is obviously drawing interest from the Orange.

Cass Techical (Mich.) High School teammates Donovan Johnson and Rodney Hall were among a large group of teammates to visit Syracuse earlier in the year. The visit clearly had an effect on Hall, who tweeted a photo of the two from their time at SU. Johnson is a defensive back prospect, while Hall is a dual-threat quarterback.

Tyus Battle, a 2016 Syracuse commit, was invited to play in the Jordan Brand Classic, but declined the invitation because of an ankle sprain, reports’s Ben Sigel. Battle was recently named Gatorade Player of the Year for the State of New Jersey.

Made Hoops’ Pat Lawless reports that Louisville and Arizona are the latest schools to offer 2017 Neumann Goretti (PA) point guard Quade Green. Green has no shortage of offers, including one from Syracuse.

Elite 2017 prospect Mohamed Bamba will take a visit to Harvard this week, reports’s very own, Adam Zagoria. Bamba holds offers from nearly every elite team in the country, including Duke, Syracuse and Kentucky.

That’s all for today. Have a great start to your week.
