One prospect that wasn’t on campus, but would’ve been is 2022 quarterback Jalen Daniels from Lincoln (CA). His father tweeted a photo of Jalen (wearing Syracuse gear, no less) saying that he would’ve been up in Central New York had he not been playing for the San Diego D1 championship. Daniels currently holds offers from Howard and Syracuse.

Speaking of 2022 quarterbacks, could Syracuse get back in the hunt for Henry Belin? The Cardinal (NY) Hayes signal caller committed to Duke earlier in the year over Pitt, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Rutgers, among others. With head coach David Cutliffe parting ways with Duke after 14 seasons, his situation is one to keep an eye on.

On the basketball court, Syracuse has extended an offer to 2023 center Isaiah Miranda from Commonwealth (VA) Academy. The Orange joins a long list of suitors for the 7-footer that includes UConn, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Seton Hall and St. John’s. He is ranked as a top 40 prospect his class and four stars.
