Syracuse has had quarterback Austin Wilson as a commit for some time. During his recruitment and when watching his film, another prospect jumped off the screen. 2014 wide receiver Sammy Marshall has been receiving interest from the Orange of late.
On Tuesday, Syracuse wide receiver coach Rob Moore took a trip to East Pennsboro (PA) to visit with the talented wideout. Marshall says they talked for a while and are working on building their relationship.
"The wide receiver coach stopped by and we discussed things today," Marshall told CuseNation.com. "We just talked about if I'm interested in Syracuse. As a receiver, I told him I was very interested.
"He told me he wanted to keep in touch and build some type of relationship to get the recruiting started."
That visit made an impression on the young receiver. The recruiting process is just getting started for Marshall, and Syracuse is looking to get in on him early. As their relationship grows, the Orange look to be in a good position early.
"I agreed and he gave me his card," Marshall recalled. "I'm going to send him my highlight tape. I plan on heading up there for junior day. That's in early February I believe."
While the Syracuse staff is working hard on filling its 2013 class, they are also getting in early on many 2014 prospects. Marshall is one of those cases, who's recruitment is only just beginning.
