Plenty to talk about in the Syracuse recruiting world as we do our first roundup of 2023.
The Orange continues to mine the portal to bolster its 2023 roster, and it offered two of the top transfer prospects this week. We start with wide receiver Tyrone Broden. The Bowling Green transfer has received offers from Syracuse, Penn State, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Houston, among others, and he took an official visit to Oklahoma over the weekend. In 2022, he caught 32 passes for 506 yards and seven touchdowns. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Syracuse also extended an offer to Cal transfer tight end Jermaine Terry II. In two seasons with the Golden Bears, he’s played in 17 games with eight starts and has seven receptions for 52 yards in his career. Hawaii, Colorado, Indiana, Nevada and Oregon State are among the schools to have offered him out of the portal so far. Terry was a four-star prospect and the No. 207 ranked player in the 2020 class according to 247 Sports.
After Syracuse had 2023 quarterback LaNorris sellers flip to South Carolina in the early signing period, the Orange is looking to add another quarterback. According to Sports Illustrated’s Mike McAllister, Syracuse offered Southern Miss transfer QB Ty Keyes, who take an official visit to Syracuse on Jan. 14. Keyes appeared in seven games over the past two years, and recorded 636 passing yards and six touchdowns.
SU isn’t done with its high school class, either. Syracuse offered 2023 ATH (RB/DB) Owen McGraw from Garden City (Mich.) High. The 5-foot-8, 165-pound speedster (he runs a 4.39 40M) holds offers from Drake and Northern Illinois.
Moving over to the basketball world, 2024 guard Jalik Dunkley is one of Canada’s top prospects and the No. 97 overall recruit in the 2024 class according to 247 Sports. The four-star wing visited Syracuse last week and posted about it in his Instagram story. He has offers from Pitt, Rhode Island, and Washington State, and the Orange offered him in October.
