On Monday, Syracuse was the latest school to offer 2023 defensive lineman Vincent Carroll-Jackson, one of the fastest rising prospects in the cycle.
“I like Syracuse from what I’ve seen,” Carroll-Jackson said in an interview with The Juice Online. “As always, I am humbly grateful, shocked and appreciative that a school as big as Syracuse wants me.”

It isn’t just Syracuse.
Since September, more than a dozen schools have extended offers, and more recently, the blue-bloods have gotten involved. In just the past week, SEC powers Florida and Georgia offered, adding to an impressive list that also includes Pitt, Rutgers, Kent State, UConn, Central Michigan and Buffalo, among others.
He took an official visit to Kent State this past weekend, and has visits with Buffalo and Rutgers lined up.
It is a meteoric rise for the Central Dauphin (PA) East recruit, who has only played one varsity football season.
“I may not have played as much as others,” Carroll-Jackson said. “But I feel like I’m just as talented, if not more.”
Carroll-Jackson is currently rated a high three-star prospects by 247 Sports, and is the No. 18 overall recruit in the Keystone State.
The offers will continue to roll in for Carroll-Jackson, and he’s taking his time in his recruitment.
“Right now I am just taking my time really absorbing everything,” he said. “I love all the opportunities. No timeline set, yet just trying to figure it all out.”
