A great showing from Syracuse fans at Onondaga Community College this weekend to support Boeheim’s Army! On to today’s recruiting links…

Syracuse picked up a pair of commitments over the weekend, starting on Saturday, when Montreal (QC) Vanier College defensive back Ben LaBrosse pledged to the Orange. Here’s what he told to 247 Sports’ Mike McAllister, who was the first to report about his commitment. “Everything felt right,” LaBrosse said of his decision. “From the coaches, players, facilities, the atmosphere in general. I know I can’t go wrong with them.”

A day later, Syracuse picked up an in-state pledge, as Steven Mahar from Aquinas Institute (NY) announced his commitment to the Orange on Twitter on Sunday. Stevie Johnson from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle caught up with Mahar after he made his decision. “It’s special man, I’ll be able to rep my home state in the ACC conference. To rep New York state means a lot,” Mahar said to Johnson. The three-star tight end was also strongly considering Boston College and Pittsburgh.

Syracuse offered 2020 defensive back Chase Atkinson, he tweeted on Saturday. He also holds an offer from Coastal Carolina, and currently is not rated by 247 Sports.

At the end of last week, Syracuse also extended an offer to 2021 Georgia linebacker Barrett Carter, he tweeted. He’s got a rating of four stars from 247 Sports, and holds an impressive offer list that includes Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Texas A&M.

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