It was another busy week in the Syracuse football recruiting world with more than 20 offers going out from the SU coaching staff, so let’s get right to it!

Syracuse football picked up a pair of commitments in the last few days, and we get started with Fordham graduate transfer Tom Callahan. The All-Patriot League long snapper is headed to Syracuse with his final year of eligibility. The Juice Online’s Wes Cheng caught up with him and he explained why he committed. “I chose Syracuse because its an opportunity for me to get a world class education, play high level football with great coaches and teammates, and to represent Cuse Nation, one of the best fan bases in the country,” Callahan said.

The second commitment came on Saturday from 2024 athlete (running back/linebacker) Sam Cooper. Cheng also chatted with Cooper, and the Conwell-Egan High (PA) recruit had this to say: “I can’t wait to be there and show the same love back and to be able to show the players and the fans that they didn’t make a mistake.”

Two other offers I wanted to highlight went to a pair of signal callers in the 2025 class. The first went to  Camden (NJ) High quarterback Deante Ruffin. “It felt amazing to get that Cuse offer,” Ruffin said in an interview with Cheng. “It’s good to see work is paying off as I’m getting a shot to play at a big university.” The other 2025 quarterback Sebastian Circo from Omaha (NE) North High, who told Cheng, “Syracuse is a great school to get your education.”

Here’s a summary of the rest of the offers that went out this week by order of graduate year:
