2024 offensive lineman Raynor Andrews picked up his first offer from Syracuse on Tuesday, describing the experience as ‘surreal,’ he said in an interview with The Juice Online.

“It definitely felt surreal and so amazing to finally get my first offer knowing how much work I put in it,” Andrews said. “It’s finally starting to pay off.”

The Miami (Fla.) Jackson High prospect received plenty of attention after leading his team to a 7-3 season and a playoff appearance in what was Andrews’ first year of football.

Aside from the Syracuse offer, the 6’6”, 300-pound athlete is also hearing from Auburn and Rutgers.

“I can definitely say I’m an athletic O-lineman,” Andrews said. “I can run as fast as one of your receivers and definitely secure the run game and do a hell of a job pass setting. What makes me different is definitely my speed, tbh. That’s what stands out about my game.”

Syracuse secondary coach Nick Monroe is the Orange’s lead recruiter, and has already formed a connection with Andrews.

“The coaching staff I’ve met so far is definitely cool and nice people,” Andrews said. “I can’t wait to meet the whole team. I definitely like the Syracuse program and I can’t wait to see more.”
