The dynamic hybrid outside linebacker/defensive end out of Thomas Jefferson in Brooklyn picked Clemson over Syracuse during the Under Armour All-American Game on ESPN at Tropicana Field in Florida on Friday night.
The final members of the Greg Robinson era who came on campus in 2008, the fifth year seniors, including record-breaking quarterback Ryan Nassib, who contributed greatly to the program’s turnaround under Doug Marrone by posting two bowl victories and 8-5 seasons in three years, have moved on.
For the second time in three years, Syracuse closed a successful campaign with a Pinstripe Bowl victory, this time running over, through, and around West Virginia for a 38-14 victory at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
Prince-Tyson Gulley and Jerome Smith powered the Orange to 376 yards on the ground as Syracuse captured its second Pinstripe Bowl in two years, defeating West Virginia, 38-14, on a blustery, snowy day at Yankee Stadium.
In its last three games, Syracuse has averaged 38 points a game, while West Virginia finished 7th in the nation with 41.6 points per game, and was 6th overall in its passing attack at 340.9 yards a game.
