Congratulations to Syracuse track runner Justyn Knight, who broke his own school record in the mile at the John Thomas Invitational in 3:55.82! On to today’s recruiting links…
Class of 2019 big man Isaiah Stewart sat down with Made Hoops’ Pat Lawless to talk about his recruitment. He mentioned Syracuse as one of the schools recruiting him the hardest, with Gerry McNamara as the lead recruiter. “The first thing that comes to mind is the dome. It has a crazy atmosphere and the fans are crazy about basketball.”
Syracuse.com’s Donna Ditota writes about 2018 commit Jalen Carey, and how he wants to push the tempo. “I’m always ready to go,” Carey said. “I try to model my game after Russell Westbrook a lot.”
2019 linebacker Avery Huff tweeted on Sunday that Syracuse extended an offer to him. The Florida prospect also holds offers from Kentucky, Auburn and Texas.
2018 defensive lineman Fitzroy Gardner is a three-star prospect from Florida, and took an official visit to Syracuse over the weekend. “Had a great time at SU,” he tweeted. He will be taking an official visit to Maryland next weekend.
247 Sports’ Allen Trieu writes that Syracuse has extended an offer to 2020 St. Louis (Mo.) quarterback Mekhi Hagens. “It was big to see them early in my career as a freshman, and it inspired me to work harder and be better than I was the previous season,” he said about the offer. It was his first offer, and the other schools showing interest include Nebraska, Mizzou and Iowa State.
That’s all for today. Have a great start to your week, everyone!
