Syracuse football received a commitment from Richmond graduate transfer Joe More over the weekend.
The right tackle started 37 of 41 games since 2018 for the Spiders, and knew he wanted to spend his final year of college eligibility showcasing his abilities for the next level. SU will offer him that opportunity.

“Syracuse was a great situation for me to come play and at an elite level and ultimately develop and transition into the NFL,” More said in an interview with The Juice Online. “Games are won in the trenches and this OL is gonna be something special.”
The Orange is expected to lose starting left tackle Matthew Bergeron to the NFL. Though redshirt freshman tackle Enrique Cruz Jr. did emerge as a starting candidate at the end of the season because of injuries, the 6-foot-5, 302-pound lineman from Tennessee brings size, experience and talent to that position.
“I am a very experienced and veteran player,” More said. “I’ve definitely played a lot of ball. I’m also an athletic and physical player.”
More was most in touch with Syracuse offensive line coach Mike Schmidt, head coach Dino Babers and Director of High School Relations Khalil Ahmad during his recruitment. The bonds he formed with them also factored into his decision.
More said he’s most looking forward to “getting to play big time ACC football and working with these coaches.”
