I think Syracuse basketball is going to make Joe Lunardi’s head explode. On to today’s recruiting links…

Syracuse landed a talented running back in the 2018 class, with Jarveon Howard announcing his commitment to the Orange on Monday afternoon via Twitter. Rated three stars by 247 Sports, the Mississippi prospect was also considering Tennessee, Mississippi State and Southern Miss. Howard told’s Stephen Bailey (first to report the story) that SU felt like a “home away from home.”

Palm Beach (Fla.) defensive back Colby Dempsey tweeted late Monday evening that he received an offer from Syracuse. It is the first offer for the 2020 prospect. Check out his HUDL highlights here.

Just last week, 2018 defensive lineman Dorail Walls tweeted that he had received a preferred walk-on offer from Syracuse. That same day, he also received a PWO offer from hometown school of Dorail Walls, and on Monday, he snagged it. He had interest from the FCS level, including offers from Alabama A&M, Morgan State and Robert Morris, among others.

Earlier in January, Syracuse was the first school to offer 2021 quarterback Athan Kaliakmanis. The Illinois prospect picked up another high-major offer on Monday, this time from Virginia Tech, he tweeted.

That’s all for today. See you tomorrow!
