Jaston George, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound cornerback from Oscar Smith High School picked up his first offer from Syracuse last month and is ready for his upcoming visit.
"I was real excited to get that offer from Syracuse and it was a big shock to get it from them because it just really came completely out of no where," George said. "Raysean Richardson, Quinta Funderburk and I are supposed to go up on April 11th and 12th for an unofficial visit to meet the coaches and see the facilities, so I'm looking forward to getting up there."
"I have talked to three coaches, but I talk to Coach Rob Moore the most and he's been cool with me. He was really excited about me coming up and wants me to just get a vibe from the coaches when I come up when he shows me a round. I get a great vibe from him personally because he talks to me about more than football. He is trying to help me find a major that I'd like up there and talks to me about life on campus up at Syracuse which really interests me. They're recruiting me as a corner there, but Coach (Scott) Shafer wants me to learn both corner and safety so I could be interchangeable if I played there."
"What I need to do is learn more about the Syracuse program while I'm up there because down here in Tidewater we don't hear from schools up in the Northeast down here," George explained. "That's why I was so shocked when I got the offer because we're so used to hearing from schools like Virginia, Virginia Tech and other schools from the south down here. I am really excited to get up there and learn more about their football team though."
