A quick take on 2023 WR Bryce Cohoon committing to Syracuse on Wednesday afternoon:
WHAT HAPPENED: Syracuse received a commitment from Bryce Cohoon, a wide receiver from Maize (KS) High. Cohoon took his official visit last weekend and was offered on the trip. After the official visit, Cohoon told The Juice Online that the Orange was ‘at the top’ of his list. It was the latest in a flurry of recruiting activity for SU, who has received four commitments in the last two weeks.
ANALYSIS: This was Syracuse’s first commitment from outside of its traditional eastern recruiting ground. Currently, Syracuse has four commitments from New York State (Zyian Moultrie-Goddard, Jalil Smith, David Clement and Rashard Perry), and another one from New Jersey (Muwaffaq Parkman). Syracuse’s only commitment outside of the northeast as of right now aside from Cohoon is South Carolina quarterback LaNorris Sellers.
HERO: Syracuse receivers coach Michael Johnson was the lead recruiter as the Orange picked up its first WR in the 2023 cycle. The speedy Cohoon is a two-sport athlete, and was a Kansas 100M state champion, with Cohoon logging a blistering 10.57 seconds in the dash. In his junior season, he finished with 40 receptions, 804 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

ZERO: Cohoon committed to Syracuse over offers from Air Force, Army, UPenn, Northern Iowa, and UMass, among others. Other schools showing interest included Kansas, Kansas State and Rutgers.
WHAT’S NEXT: There’s been a lot of speculation that 2023 Massachusetts OL Jayden Bass could be the next to commit. Also keep an eye out on 2023 OL Deandre Duffus, who is expected to commit on July 3. Syracuse, Maryland and Indiana are the three schools he has either officially visited, or plans to visit.
