2024 speedster Conor McFadden took a visit to Syracuse this weekend and came away impressed with the trip, he said in an interview with The Juice Online.

McFadden, who plays running back and defensive back for Central Bucks West High (PA), finished with 1,020 all purpose yards as they finished 9-5 on the season. The end of football season also marked the beginning of winter track & field, where McFadden has logged times of 11.07 in the 100M and 6.95 seconds in the 60M.

That speed has both college track and football programs involved in his recruitment.

“I’m looking for somewhere I can get a good education,” McFadden, who holds a 4.1 GPA, said. “I also want to either play football or run track, possibly both, so I look for a good athletics program.”

Syracuse can provide both to him, McFadden learned on his visit.

“I was very impressed by Syracuse, I didn’t know they were so distinctive academically and I enjoyed learning about it,” McFadden said. “Very impressed with the graduation rate and the international establishments.”

On the athletics side, McFadden met with wide receivers coach Mike Johnson.

“The conversations went well,” he said. “Coach Johnson explained the traits he’s looking for in a WR and the basic techniques he works in his WRs.”

McFadden hasn’t formally started his college football recruitment process because of his commitments to track & field, but he plans on staying in touch with the Orange when he does.

“I would say Syracuse is definitely my favorite so far,” McFadden said.
