Pittsburgh, Pa., native Ian Park received his Syracuse offer a little over a week ago and we caught up with the 6-foot-4, 300-pound offensive guard on Sunday night to see what he knows about the school and football program.
"When I got my Syracuse offer I got in contact with Coach Adkins who had told my coach that I had an offer," Park said. "I knew they were a little bit interested, but the offer was a pretty big surprise when it did come."
"I haven't talked to the staff since I did get the offer, but I do think I'll be up for spring practice at some point," Park added. "I know they run a similar offense to what we run which is why I'm definitely interested as that's what I'm looking for, but I don't know a great deal of details about their university."
"Obviously they have big tradition up there which is impressive and I did see The Express," Park stated. "Jack Schwaba and I definitely could come up for our visit together. We do stack up our right side of the line a lot and the ball comes behind us a lot, so we have good success there and he and I are friends off the field too."
As a junior, Park was named first-team All-Conference. His core GPA is 3.38 and he scored a 1550 on his SAT.
