There’s plenty of news from the Syracuse recruiting world as I write the first roundup of the fall.

The Orange had nearly a dozen visitors to watch Syracuse’s 22-20 win over Virginia, and several of them walked away with offers.

I’ll start with 2025 wide receiver/defensive back Azir Lee from Camden (NJ) Academy High. Lee is a two-sport star (track & field) and tweeted after his visit that the Orange had offered. That’s the second offer for Lee, who was also offered by Temple in August. The Juice Online’s Wes Cheng caught up with Lee, who said the offer was another step into achieving “a childhood dream.”

Another visitor who received a Syracuse offer on his visit was 2024 ATH Braheem Long from Camden (NJ) High. Cheng also spoke with him after his visit and offer, and raved about his visit. “Syracuse is definitely a team that are doing big things and they interested me a lot.” He also holds a Temple offer.

Elite 2025 athlete Cameron Miller from Winslow (NJ) Township was also at the Dome, and he tweeted that Syracuse was the latest school to offer. He already holds a slew of high-major offers, including Georgia, Maryland, Nebraska and Michigan.

Syracuse offered 2024 wide receiver Jaylan Hornsby, one of the most coveted prospects from New Jersey. Aside from SU, the Camden (NJ) High recruit holds offers from Georgia, Michigan, Penn State and Pitt, among others.

Other prospects who were on the visitor list included:

  • Caden Brown, a 2024 DE/LB from Erasmus Hall (NY). His offer list includes Michigan State, Penn State, Syracuse and West Virginia.
  • Deante Ruffin, a 2025 quarterback from Camden (NJ) High. His offer list includes West Virginia.
  • Jacob Zamot, a 2024 quarterback from Millville (NJ) High. Here’s The Juice Online’s interview with Zamot.

Aside from the visitors from Friday, Syracuse was active, offering 2025 ATH Nolan James from Don Bosco (NJ) Prep. Connecticut, Akron, Kent State and Boston College have offered him so far.

Following the win, the coaching staff was back on the road recruiting, and head coach Dino Babers was in Buffalo to watch Sweet Home (NY) Senior High’s game, tweeted 2026 defensive back Demari Clemons. Clemons was on the visitor list for Syracuse’s 32-29 win over Purdue earlier in September.
