Happy National Ballpoint Pen Day! On to today’s recruiting links…
The News-Gazette’s Scott Richey recently caught up with 2020 forward and Syracuse priority recruit Andre Jackson. “The relationship [with the coaches] definitely matters the most. If I feel comfortable, I’m going to play my best,” Jackson said. Syracuse, UConn and Iowa are the schools that have been after him the longest. He’s taken official visits to UConn, Syracuse, and most recently, UCLA.
York (PA) offensive lineman Garth Barclay tweeted on Saturday that he had received an offer from the Orange. The 2020 prospect had previously taken a visit to Syracuse in mid-May. Virginia, Kent State, Villanova and Toledo are among the schools to offer.
2021 wide receiver Jordan Moore also tweeted out a Syracuse offer on Saturday. It is the second offer for the Towson (Md.) star, with the other being Boston College. His primary recruit is Orange assistant coach Reno Ferri.
Ferri is also the primary recruiter on 2020 wide receiver Jordan Addison, a three-star recruit from Frederick (Md.). Addison tweeted a Syracuse offer on Saturday, adding to a list that already includes Maryland, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Virginia, among others.
Suffield (Conn.) defensive lineman Kechaun Bennett now holds a Syracuse offer, he tweeted. The 2021 prospect already holds offers from Michigan, Pitt and Tennessee, among others.
Two recruits with Syracuse offers picked other schools over the weekend. 2020 Washington, D.C. offensive lineman Patrick Matan tweeted that he had committed to NC State over offers from the Orange, UNC, Kansas, Louisville and Maryland, among others. That followed news that 2020 three-star linebacker DJ Humes pledged to Liberty. The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) star also had offers from Buffalo, Missouri and Pitt.
That’s all for today. Have a great start to your week, everyone!
