It was a busy week in the Syracuse football recruiting world with the Orange & Blue spring game and several offers being handed out. Let’s get right to it.

Syracuse extended an offer to Rutgers transfer Cedrice Paillant. The offensive lineman announced his decision to enter the portal on Friday via Twitter. He made six starts in 2021, and played 20 total games played with 13 starts for the Scarlet Knights across two seasons.

Syracuse also offered 2024 athlete Mekhai White from King (Va.) George. He already has 17 offers, including from Boston College, Duke, Maryland, UNC, Penn State, and Pitt.

The Orange also extended an offer to Wayland (TX) Baptist University transfer Owen Fuambu. He reports it as his first Division 1 offer.
