There’s almost too much to talk about in the Syracuse football recruiting world this week, with the contact period being open from Jan. 12 – 28. The Syracuse coaching staff handed out more than 20 offers in the past week, and there are a few I wanted to highlight before I get to the full list of offerees (that I broke down by class for your reading convenience!).

Syracuse offensive coordinator Jason Beck offered several quarterbacks in the 2024 class, including Sunnyslope (AZ) High’s Luke Moga. The dual-threat quarterback holds about a dozen offers, including from Kansas, Arizona, Arizona State, and NC State. Our Wes Cheng caught up with him after the offer, and he said he has a great relationship with Beck. “I love how coach Beck not only loves me as a QB, but as a person and character,” Moga said. “My parents emphasized that when I was growing up, so it’s great to see all these coaches respect that.”

Staying in 2024, Syracuse offered Willie Goodacre from Denton (TX) High. Goodacre was previously recruited by new Syracuse offensive line coach Steve Farmer at Tulsa, and he talked to Cheng about the relationship. “Any man spends his Father’s Day recruiting you is a great dude,” Goodacre said.

Two other 2024 prospects Cheng caught up with were Kankakee (Ill.) High’s Marques Easley and Monsignor Bonner (PA) ATH (TE/DE) Mylachi Williams. “It felt good,” Easley said about the SU offer. “I think it’s a vibe school.” Williams had this to say about his Syracuse offer: “It felt great to get another opportunity to play football at a high level.”

Meanwhile, wide receivers coach Mike Johnson was recruiting in California, and offered 2025 defensive lineman Hayden Lowe from Oaks Christian (Calif.). Washington, Pitt, Utah, Michigan, Boston College, Oregon State and Arizona are among his offers, and he joined Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse Podcast to talk about his Syracuse offer. “Syracuse has always been on my bucket list because my Mom loves that school,” Lowe said on this week’s The Juice on the Cuse Podcast. “It has great academic properties to it that I can utilize, and something that will be good for my future. I’m really blessed and honored to call that one of my offers.”

Here’s a list of every other offer Syracuse extended in the past week:




  • Zachary Brown, an ATH (WR/LB) from Central Dauphin (PA) East
  • Messiah Mickens, an ATH (RB/LB) from Trinity High (PA)
  • Maurice Barnes Jr., an ATH (RB/LB) from Bishop McDevitt High (PA)
  • Cameron Brickle, a defensive lineman from Malvern (PA) Prep
  • Elias Cody Coke, an ATH (WR/DB) from Harrisburg (PA) High
