Welcome back Deon Maddox! On to today’s recruiting links…

Syracuse bolstered its offensive line on Thursday, adding a commitment from Willie Tyler, an offensive tackle from Texas, he announced on Twitter. Tyler started his career at Iowa Western before transferring to Texas in the 2019 recruiting cycle. He never played a snap for the Longhorns, because redshirted for a year and then opted out in 2020 due to COVID. Tyler, a former three-star prospect, has three years of eligibility remaining.

Earlier in the week, Syracuse offered 2022 Fort Myers (Fla.) defensive back Greg Delaine Jr. Sports Illustrated’s Mike McAllister spoke with Delaine about his offer, and he’s put SU into his top 3 along with Iowa State and Toledo.  “They offered me because I’m a dominant DB,” Delaine said. “I’m strong, I can play zone, I can play safety.”

Syracuse offered 2023 lineman Michael Jimmar from Plainfield (Ill.) East High on Thursday, he tweeted. It is Jimmar’s first offer, and his primary recruiter is defensive line coach Vince Reynolds. Check out his HUDL highlights.

The Orange also dipped into the class of 2024, offering wide receiver Tyseer Denmark, he announced on Twitter. He already holds offers from from a slew of high-majors, including Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland and Ole’ Miss. His primary recruiter is SU receivers coach Terrence Samuel.

That’s all for today. Have a great weekend!
