2023 wide receiver Cam Pragano visited Syracuse for its 59-0 win over Wagner, and after the game called SU one of his ‘top choices.’

“I got to see first hand how good Syracuse is and how the team is one of the top teams, not only in the ACC, but in the entire country,” Pragano said in an interview with The Juice Online. “I think the best is yet to come for Orange Nation. Syracuse is definitely one of my top choices to further my academics and athletics.”

The Lyman (CT) Hall prospect and captain of the team is also drawing interest from Connecticut. He got to take in the Syracuse facilities, and met with the players and staff.

The camaraderie from the fans, to the players, and to the coaches impressed Pragano.

“The SU staff was top notch,” he said. “What I thought was so awesome was everyone I met on Saturday was 100 percent committed to Syracuse and that is contagious. After the game, the coaches were so down to earth and I immediately felt like I was part of the Syracuse family. It’s easy to see why this team is undefeated.”

He had the same feeling toward the SU community.

“Game day was awesome,” Pragano said. “The electricity not only inside the Dome but all around, it was one of the best I’ve ever been around. I can definitely get use to it.”

The win kept Syracuse perfect on the season at 5-0, the first time since they’ve started that well since 1987. It’s drawn the notice of the college football world, as the Orange is ranked in both the AP (22) and Coach’s (21) polls.

“The group is just hitting its stride and will be fun to watch climb the rankings,” Pragano said. “It’s only the beginning for this team.”
