What a time to be a Syracuse fan!

Undefeated on the season, the Orange stand at 6-0, (3-0 ACC), rank No. 14 in the AP and Coaches Poll, and they just qualified for a bowl game.

Yup, everything is coming up Orange. And Dino Babers and his staff are doing their best to ensure that translates into recruiting wins.

Each of the five home games has been well-attended by recruits from the classes of 2023, 2024, 2025, and 2026. Plenty of recruits attended the NC State game and The Juice caught up with a handful of them.

Read our interviews with Nasere Johnson-BlakneyThomas Sousa, Sah’nye Degraffenreidt, Mareon Tisdale, Ronnell Davis, and DJ McClary.

Besides the game invites, the coaches extended plenty of offers too:

All is well in the Orange gridiron world. No one is saying, “when does hoops season start?” as a showdown at undefeated Clemson looms large. The football team also gets the all-important extra practices for the bowl game.

And perhaps best of all, the “experts” are forced to eat plenty of humble pie – yes, we are looking at you, Mike Farrell!
