Syracuse football hosted nearly 40 recruits from the classes of 2023-27 on Saturday as the Orange defeated Louisville 31-7.

We caught up with some of the recruits to hear what they had to say after taking in the electric JMA Wireless Dome atmosphere.

I loved every minute up at Syracuse!!! The energy in the dome, especially on third down was crazy!!! I can definitely see myself playing there and hyping the crowd up on third because the noise was demeaning and creates a real home field advantage for the Cuse.”—Ausar Heard, class of 2027, ATH from Eastern (NJ) High

The atmosphere was crazy. I could just feel the energy from the players warming up, and I enjoyed myself there for sure. This was my first time seeing them play and they are filled with energy and excitement. You can tell they love the game of football.” —Terron Loyd, class of 2024, WR/DB from Woodrow (NJ) Wilson High.

I enjoyed the game a lot Getting to watch Syracuse win the home opener was great. Being an offensive lineman, I loved seeing the offensive line open up holes for Sean Tucker. I loved to see the players energy on the field whenever a big play happened, it just showed that they are a family. I loved every minute of it.” —Adam Yevchak, class of 2024, offensive lineman from Donovan (NJ) Catholic.

The game was amazing! Watching Syracuse win its him opener was very cool especially because they were underdogs. Everyone was excited and cheered for almost everything! Syracuse is definitely a place that could feel like home. The coaches, the facilities, the fans – orange nation is strong.” —Kahden Davis, class of 2027, quarterback from St. Peters (NJ) Prep.

The visit was great. We got there ate some good food, met up with some of the other recruits. We chilled, then we went on the field for the pregame and after the game I celebrated with my future team.” —Syracuse commit Muwaffaq Parkman, class of 2023, running back from Hillside (NJ) High.
