2024 dual threat QB Jacob Zamot was on hand for Syracuse’ 22-20 win over Virginia on Friday, and came away raving about an ‘electric’ atmosphere.

“The game was awesome,” Zamot said in an interview with The Juice Online. “The Dome was electric. The crowd is definitely a major factor, they are truly the 12th man.”

Syracuse led for most of the game, but needed a final drive to take the lead for good. SU quarterback Garrett Shrader led an 11-play, 62-yard drive that culminated in an Andre Szymt field goal with 1:14 left in the game.

That was enough to push the Orange to a 4-0 start, the first time since 2018 SU has won its first four games.

“The team fought hard and didn’t give up, they played for each other and the coaching staff,” Zamot said. “It was a great team win.”

The win certainly made an impression on Zamot.

“Syracuse is definitely in my top 3 choices of schools,” Zamot said. “I definitely enjoyed the game and I’m looking forward to coming back up soon.”

He previously took an unofficial visit to Syracuse in May, and has had a busy schedule since then, also drawing interest from Rutgers, UConn, Penn State, UMass, UCF, and Temple, among others.

While Zamot doesn’t hold a Syracuse offer yet, that could change very soon for the Millville (NJ) High signal caller.

“Talked with the coaches a lot, they love my arm and athletic abilities,” Zamot said. “They said they are watching my season closely so I’m hoping to receive an offer soon.”
