If you’re still pondering where this past weekend falls on the Horrendous Scale of Orange sports, consider this:

Sean Tucker rushed for 109 yards. Colgate scored 100 points.

Anyone think those two numbers would’ve been so close?

Let’s get to those offers…

Dino Babers and his staff continue to scour the country looking to fill out their 2022 recruiting class while planting seeds for future classes.

Kadin Bailey – Class of 2022

Bailey, a linebacker from Jefferson, GA, recently tweeted out his offer from Syracuse. Bailey stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 200 pounds. He also has offers from P5 schools Kansas State and Tennessee. He has yet to be ranked by 247Sports or Rivals. Bailey’s offer also coincides with Geoff Cantin-Arku entering the transfer portal.

Aidan Vaughan – Class of 2022

Vaughan, out of Walled Lake, MI, also plays linebacker. He’s 6-foot-4 and weighs 220 pounds. He’s ranked three stars by 247Sports and two stars by Rivals. Wisconsin seems to have the inside tract with Vaughan as he’s received three Crystal Ball picks from 247Sports and one FutureCast from Rivals.

Koen Entringer – Class of 2022

Entringer is teammates with Vaughan. Both 247Sports and Rivals classify him as an Athlete. Also like Vaughan, he’s ranked three stars by 247Sports and two stars by Rivals. He hasn’t received a Crystal Ball pick or a FutureCast. But, 247Sports lists Wisconsin, Iowa, and Syracuse as “warm.” His primary Syracuse recruiter is Vince Reynolds according to 247Sports.

Websley Etienne – Class of 2022

Etienne is a Florida native who recently decommitted from Buffalo. Both 247Sports and Rivals rank him as a 3-star recruit. Etienne is a safety who stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 170 pounds. He also has offers from Indiana, Kentucky, and Mississippi State.

Grady Gross – Class of 2022

Gross is a kicker out of Scottsdale, AZ who doesn’t yet have a profile on either 247 Sports or Rivals. He recently tweeted that he’s rated first in Arizona in punting average at 47.1 yards with 11 punts inside the 20 yardline. That makes for an interesting recruiting angle given Syracuse’s difficulty with punting this season.

Xavier Miles – Class of 2024

Moving to the Class of 2024, Xavier Miles recently tweeted out an offer from the Orange. Miles plays for St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City. The defensive lineman already has size for the college game as he’s 6-foot-2 and weighs 328 pounds. While neither recruiting service has ranked him, he has offers from Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Mississippi, and Rutgers.


All’s been quiet on the hardwood since the early signing period wrapped up. Syracuse currently has the fourteenth ranked class by 247Sports and the twentieth ranked class by Rivals. Though, Maliq Brown isn’t listed by Rivals.

One recruit who won’t be signing with the Orange is former target Ty Rodgers out of Michigan. Rodgers recently signed his letter of intent with Illinois.
