Plenty of news from the Syracuse recruiting world as we head into the middle of May.

On Friday, Syracuse received a commitment from FAU transfer D’Marcus Adams. Adams was originally a three star recruit and ranked the No. 420th player in the 2018 class and committed to Florida State. He transferred to FAU in 2020, and finished with 3 receptions for 94 yards, while also playing defensive back. He entered the portal in December and has two years of eligibility remaining.

Syracuse likely isn’t done with its transfers. AllSyracuse.com’s Mike McAllister caught up with one of the Orange’s portal targets, JUCO offensive lineman Savion Herring. He took an visit to Central New York last week, and called the visit “great.” Herring has the versatility to play multiple positions on the line, and the coaching staff said he would likely compete for the starting guard and center spots.

Outside of the portal, the football staff handed out more than 20 offers in the last week. We’ve tracked it below, but one particular offer I wanted to highlight is Samson Okunlola, a 2023 lineman from Thayer (Mass.) Academy. He is considered one of the top prospects in the 2023 cycle, with 247 Sports rating him a five-star prospect and No. 30 overall in the class. His offer list includes Arizona, Auburn, Colorado, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, OSU, Tennessee, UCLA and USC, among others.

Here are some of the other offers Syracuse extended this week:
