Class of 2024 kicker/punter Sam Bisesi visited Syracuse on Friday, and raved about his visit in an interview with The Juice Online.

“My visit at SU was very special,” Bisesi said. “I enjoyed every minute of it. The coaching staff and facilities are amazing.”

The Iona (NY) Prep prospect is ranked the 37th best kicker in his class by Chris Sailer Kicking, and has a 4.5 star rating. South Carolina, Boston College, Notre Dame, Penn State, Maryland, UConn, Pitt and Duke are among the schools that have shown interest in him so far.

His scouting report shows he hits an accurate ball and has 50+ yard range off the ground.

“My plans for this upcoming season is to be the best player I can possibly be and an even better teammate,” Bisesi said. “I will push myself every week to get better whether it’s on the field or in the weight room.”

If you recognize Bisesi’s prep school, that shouldn’t be a surprise. Bisesi is teammates with 2023 linebacker Zyian Moultrie-Goddard, who committed to Syracuse last week.

“I am very excited to see my teammate Zyian ball out at SU,” Bisesi said. “I can promise you SU is getting a beast and an even better teammate.”

During his visit, Bisesi got to speak with several of the assistant coaches, including Syracuse special teams coordinator Bob Ligashesky.

“Coach (Nick) Monroe and Coach Lig are both amazing coaches and I enjoyed meeting them,” Bisesi said. “I look forward to building a strong connection with them.”

Bisesi, who plans on returning in the fall for another visit, also toured the facilities with Syracuse’s Director of Player Development, Deon Maddox.

“Coach Maddox did a great job with showing me around the facilities and telling me all the history SU football has,” Bisesi said. “Especially with the number 44 which was very interesting.”
