American (Fla.) Heritage wide receiver Oronde Gadsden II committed to Syracuse on Monday afternoon, he announced on Twitter.

Rated three stars by 247 Sports, he picked the Orange over finalists Penn State, Arizona State and South Florida. He also had offers from Boston College, Baylor, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia, among others.

“He can play the boundary receiver type role that Jamal Custis did for Syracuse,” Sports Illustrated Director of Football Recruiting said to The Juice. “I think there’s some tight end upside for him, too.”

Gadsden is the 21st commitment in SU’s 2021 class, and its third wide receiver. He joins Kendall Long and Umari Hatcher, who are also rated three stars.
