Sorting the offers

Football recruiting is nearing the home stretch for the 2013 cycle, and Syracuse is still sitting at eight high school verbal commitments at this time. With considerable work to be done between now and February 6 to lock in another good group, takes a look at each and every offer on the table at this time as well as where each prospect stands inside.

Here's what we know about Syracuse football's class of 2013.

With eight current commits (excluding the uncertainty of JUCO/prep school players that committed in 2012), there are still plenty of holes to be filled – well except for at quarterback and tight end.

Zach Allen and Austin Wilson have been all Orange since the summer, and each will look to challenge for immediate playing time beginning next fall when Ryan Nassib will no longer call himself the starting quarterback at SU. It's very unlikely that another signal-caller will be brought in. At tight end, Tyler Provo will suit up in Orange as his brother did just recently.

Otherwise, the spots are wide open. The class is anchored by a pair of linebacker commits on defense, but Devan Carter has minimal experience at the position and Marqez Hodge is hardly as gung-ho about ‘Cuse as the quarterback pledges are. So, naturally, the position may be the hottest one to track down the stretch.

Running back is also an interesting spot, as Augustus Edwards remains solid despite new interest and an offer from Florida State. Will he be the lone back in the group? Or will he be the bell-cow to help secure another New York City ball carrier in Laray Smith?

Defensive line is also an interesting unit to eye going forward, with Wayne Williams and Isaiah Johnson already on board. Neither is the prototypical rush end, so look for the staff to hit that group hard – led by No. 1 target on the board Ebenezer Ogundeko.

Find out where each undeclared offeree – all 34 of them as of November 21 – stands with the Orange as it looks to build a class in the high teens or low 20s at the most in 2013.
