2024 prospect Cameron Chmura is the epitome of a student-athlete.

At 6 foot 3 and 270 pounds, he has the size, athleticism and versatility (he plays both offensive and defensive line) to be a high-major player. He already holds offers from UMass and Kent State, while high-majors Syracuse, Boston College, Pitt and Penn State have all shown interest.

He’s also a high-achieving student, carrying a 3.8 GPA. Not surprisingly, schools like Harvard and Penn are also recruiting him.

Syracuse had an opportunity to show the North (PA) Allegheny lineman what it had to offer, as Chmura was on campus with roughly two dozen recruits for the Orange’s 24-9 win over NC State on Saturday. The win kept SU perfect on the season at 6-0, and vaulted the Orange to No. 14 in both the AP and Coaches polls.

Chmura came away impressed with the experience at the JMA Wireless Dome, as the sold-out Syracuse crowd made its presence felt.

“(It was) fun and loud,” Chmura said in an interview with The Juice Online. “I think the crowd caused a couple offensive penalties. Great to be a part of it.”

Aside from the game, Chmura got to see the Syracuse campus and tour the football facilities, learning more about the rich history of the Orange football program and also its academics.

He liked what he heard and saw.

“Syracuse would be a great place for me,” Chmura said. “Both academically and athletically.”

That’s certainly good news for the Orange coaching staff, who will continue to recruit Chmura.

“Coaches told me to keep working hard,” he said. “They are looking forward to having me back on campus again.”

That’s exactly what Chmura’s done so far, as North Allegheny has raced out to a 7-1 record, and is a perfect 3-0 in conference play.

Said Chmura: “We still have a lot of work ahead of us.”
