Mount Holly, N.J., native Dominic Twitty is the second player from his team that told us on Sunday that Syracuse looks and feels much like home and that's definitely a good sign if the Orange want the 6-foot-2, 260-pound defensive tackle to commit this year.
"I liked it at Syracuse and we had fun up there," Twitty explained. "The thing I liked most about it was the coaching staff and how much they got into the spring game. They were just so energetic the entire time. I learned a lot from the game itself in terms of how the defensive linemen lined up, used their hands and a lot other technique work."
"Syracuse really reminded me of my hometown and I just felt like I was back at my house when I was there," Twitty added. "I felt great about that. The surroundings, the atmosphere, the people … everything just kept bringing me right back to where I live and that was cool for me."
"I talked to most of the coaches while I was up there, but I didn't talk to Coach Doug Marrone," Twitty said. "They just talked about how good of an academic school Syracuse is and how they could coach me to be a better player than I am now. I definitely listen to them and give them that respect and think I could learn from them."
We asked Twitty what was on the agenda going forward in recruiting.
"I'm just waiting around for more colleges to contact me. I feel really good about the offers I have now and feel like I deserve them for the hard work I put in during the season and offseason. I'd like to make a decision sometime during basketball season next year."
As a junior, Twitty had 45 tackles, seven sacks and two interceptions.
