Syracuse Grabs QB Commit

Rush-Henrietta High School quarterback Ashton Broyld visited Syracuse this weekend and felt comfortable enough to give the Orange his verbal commitment during his visit, giving them another very talented signal caller to add to the mix for 2012.

Ashton Broyld, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback from Henrietta, N.Y., just confirmed his commitment to Syracuse and spoke on why he picked the Orange.

"I committed to Syracuse today," Broyld stated. "We're on the highway now on our way home from the visit and it went pretty well. I heard everything I needed to know and hopefully I made the right decision."

"I met a lot of the coaches and got acclimated to the system a little bit. They talked about me starting out at quarterback and if that didn't work out that they'd find somewhere else for me to play, but all I need is a chance at quarterback. I'm pretty sure in my ability at quarterback and think I can rise to the occasion, so I'm looking forward to the challenge when I get up there."

"My confidence in the coaches is what made me pick them today," Broyld said. "They'll make me a better person and player and they also set a perfect example for us up there. I'm just excited to be a part of the Syracuse Orange."

As a senior, Broyld ended up throwing for 1961 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also had 1560 rushing yards and 24 more scores.
