Congratulations to the women’s lacrosse team for their win over Georgetown in the NCAA Tournament! On to today’s recruiting links…

Stevie Johnson from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle recently caught up with 2020 tight end Steven Mahar Jr. from Rochester (NY). The Aquinas Institute recently picked up an offer from Syracuse in May, but seemed frustrated that the Orange was late to his recruitment. “At this point I’m considering all of my offers equally, but it impacts a little bit that they were behind some other schools,” he said.

2020 athlete (LB/RB) Stefon Thompson from Charlotte (NC) picked up an offer from Syracuse, he tweeted on Saturday. He’s got a three-star rating from 247 Sports, and holds offers from Colorado State, Liberty and Wisconsin, among others. Syracuse is his first ACC offer.

Desmond Daniels, 2020 linebacker from Fairburn (Ga.) tweeted on Friday evening that he received an offer from Syracuse. UAB, Akron, Illinois and Eastern Kentucky are some of the other schools who have extended offers.
