2024 athlete Kenneth “Deuce” Everett ‘enjoyed every minute’ of his trip to Syracuse to see the Orange defeat Purdue 32-29.
It was a dramatic back-and-forth affair, with the teams combining for 42 points in the fourth quarter. It wasn’t until Syracuse quarterback Garrett Shrader found tight end Oronde Gadsden II for a 25-yard touchdown with seven seconds left that the game was decided.

“I loved the third down energy,” Everett said in an interview with The Juice Online. “First half was slow but overall I enjoyed every minute.”
Everett, from Winslow (NJ) Township High, is a sought after recruit in the 2024 cycle, and already holds offers from Penn State and Temple. He’s also drawn interest from other Power 5 programs such as Wake Forest and West Virginia. He’s played multiple positions as a defensive back and is also a star wide receiver.
He came away from Syracuse impressed with the energy of the JMA Dome, which was the catalyst behind several Purdue penalties.

“Every single coach I was introduced to today made sure I knew the Dome was going to get really loud,” Everett said. “Once Cuse fans got situated in their seats, no lies told at all.”
Everett was on hand with his family, and though this was his first trip to Central New York, it will likely not be his last.
“It was my first time coming to Syracuse, but I felt really welcomed. I hope to be back,” Everett said. “The staff made my family very comfortable and showed all the recruits why we should #commit2cuse.”
