Dion Waiters has seen better days. On to today’s recruiting links…

2020 Glades (Fla.) Central wide receiver Ja’vontae Williams committed to Syracuse during his official visit over the weekend, he tweeted. The three-star prospect picked the Orange over offers from Indiana, Illinois, Oregon and Miami, among other schools. He became the second pure receiver in the class, joining fellow Florida commit Damien Alford.

The Orange is in the final three for 2020 wide receiver Kentron Poitier‏, who will be picking between SU, Florida and Florida State, he tweeted on Monday morning. The announcement will take place on the early signing day of Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 9 a.m. EST. The three-star Miami (Fla.) Palmetto athlete also holds offers from an impressive group of schools including Michigan, Alabama, Miami, Auburn, Oregon and North Carolina, among many others.

Three-star Canadian offensive lineman Leif Magnuson tweeted over the weekend that Syracuse assistant coach Mike Cavanaugh called him to extend an offer. The 2020 prospect also holds offers from Boston College, Indiana, Kansas and Washington State, among others.

Syracuse also extended an offer to 2022 running back Christion Stokes from Harper (Mich.) Woods, he tweeted. He said it was his seven offer, and that list includes Central Michigan, Maryland, Minnesota and Kent State.

The Orange did, however, lose out on 2020 defensive tackle David Ndukwe, reports’s Stephen Bailey. The Arabia (Ga.) Mountain prospect was committed to Western Kentucky, and decided to hold to that commitment despite a late push from the Orange. Syracuse interim defensive coordinator Steve Stanard extended an offer last week during an in-home visit, and he was up at the Syracuse campus over the weekend for an official visit.

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