247 Sports’ Mike McAllister calls in to analyze the 2019 early signing period for Syracuse football with host Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by TJO editor in chief Brad Bierman then calls in to chat about the basketball team heading into ACC play.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: The 2019 early signing period is over. Syracuse inked 18 new players. I just wanted to get your overall thoughts on the guys Syracuse is bringing in.

Mike McAllister: I think their class is very solid. I think it’s missing that one big wow factor recruit to make the class feel like it’s taking a step forward. This year, they were involved with Cade Fortin the quarterback and Kentron Potier the wide receiver from Florida who picked Florida State. It feels like they’re missing that one big fish in this class. Otherwise, the players they got in overall are either on par or a slight tick up where they’ve been in the past. If they can sure up the quarterback position and grab one of those high-profile, hyped guys, it would make the fan base feel better about it.
