One of the most coveted linemen in the midwest is 2024 Kankakee (Ill.) High’s Marques Easley.
A three-star prospect and the No. 39 overall offensive tackle in his class according to 247, Easley has received plenty of attention from high-majors, racking up offers from Florida State, Iowa State, Texas A&M, Illinois, Wisconsin, Penn State and Indiana, among many others.
After a great conversation with @CoachLynch I’m blessed to receive an offer from Syracuse University #orange #Syracuse @CoachShaqPowell @Kendrick_Crite @adamgorney @AllenTrieu @Rivals_Clint @EDGYTIM @CuseFootball pic.twitter.com/gmNzSEm2Sq

Syracuse was the latest school to offer the 6-foot-7, 300 pound prospect, who led his team to an 8-3 record and a second place finish in the competitive Southland Conference.
“It felt good,” Easley said in an interview with The Juice Online about the SU offer. “I think it’s a vibe school.”
Syracuse offensive line coach Mike Lynch extended the offer.
“Coach (Lynch) got nothing but great vibes,” Easley said.
At some point, Easley will need to trim down from the more than 20 offers he’s received.
But as of now, he’s not in a rush.
“Right now, everyone just on me,” Easley said. “I have no favorite as of right now. I’m looking for who needs me and not wants me.”
