2025 ATH Azir Lee is a two-sport star at Camden (NJ) Academy High and was among a large group of visitors for Syracuse’s 22-20 win over Virginia on Friday evening.
Lee, a two-sport star who plays wide receiver and defensive back, also picked up his first Power 5 offer from the Orange during his visit. Lee was offered by Temple in August.

“When I got the offer, it was like ‘dang,’ this is really happening right now,” Lee said in an interview with The Juice Online. “I’m really getting closer to where I wanna be in life more and more, really becoming a childhood dream.”
Lee also competes in track and field, and is a long jumper and sprinter, competing in the 100M, 200M and 400M.
That kind of speed and athleticism fits well into SU’s uptempo offense under offensive coordinator Robert Anae.
As for the game, Lee enjoyed the visit, especially the environment inside the JMA Wireless Dome. The Orange led for most of the game, but needed a game-winning drive and field goal with 1:14 left to take the lead for good.
“The atmosphere was beautiful,” Lee said. “I started to get hype like I was the one who was playing.”
He left with a great impression of the Orange, who improved to 4-0 with the win.
“The game was very interesting the watch,” Lee said. “I like the way how Syracuse got some go-getters, and for it to be my first time at one of their games, or a game like that in general, it had me out of my seat and eager to watch.”
