Plenty to talk about in this week’s Syracuse recruiting roundup! Let’s get right to it.

Syracuse is the latest school to offer Cardinal (Fla.) Gibbons defensive lineman Ahmad Moten. The three-star prospect holds offers from West Virginia, Illinois, and Maryland, among others. Following Syracuse’s offer, Florida, Kentucky and Oregon also threw their hats in the ring.

Keep an eye on 2022 Walled (Mich.) Lake athlete Keon Entringer. The three-star athlete decommitted from Central Michigan last week. Entringer had committed to CMU in June, and Syracuse extended Entringer his first Power 5 offer on Oct. 16. He already has an unofficial visit to Louisville lined up according to 247 Sports’ Allen Trieu and also holds offers from Maryland and Colorado.

Syracuse is the first school to extend an offer from Class of 2025 quarterback Rich Belin. The Cardinal (NY) Hayes signal caller is the younger brother of Duke quarterback Henry Belin, who was also heavily recruited by the Orange before he chose the Blue Devils.

Speaking of quarterbacks, Syracuse just lost one over the weekend. Sophomore Dillon Markiewicz announced he was entering the portal on on Sunday after he was buried on the depth chart throughout all of 2021. Markiewicz appeared in two games in 2020 during SU’s injury-marred 2020 season, and didn’t appear to have a path to starting after the emergence of Garrett Shrader with JaCobian Morgan as his backup, and Justin Lamson as a potential heir-apparent.

Over to the basketball court, the class of 2022 is locked in. Quadir Copeland, Justin Taylor, Chris Bunch, Maliq Brown and Peter Carey all signed their letters of intent last week. The class is currently ranked 14th overall according to 247 Sports.
