2014 3-star athlete Justin Noye has seen his recruitment continue to pick up over the winter and spring. He took the short trip from Rochester to Syracuse to watch the Orange practice on Sunday. Noye noticed the difference between high school and college football right away.
"They were really fast," Noye admitted. "College ball is faster than high school football. They're aren't really anyone without skills. Everyone on the field is good."
The talented prospect was able to observe most of practice on the field to get an up close look at the Orange. Being able to do that meant a lot to Noye who has been looking for Syracuse to show interest for some time.
"It was good (going on the field)," Noye explained. "That showed that they know who I am and that they really are going to recruit me a lot and stuff like that."
While on the field, Noye spent time with director of recruiting Eric White. The two discussed football and the Orange's interest in the 6-foot-1 prospect.
"We talked about both (the team and his recruitment)," Noye recalled. "He was asking me what position I would be playing and how I feel about the school there. Also what I want to major in.
"I told him I'm an athlete. I'll play any position. I told him I'm interested too. No offer yet. They want to see me at camp first."
After practice, Noye was able to take a quick tour of the facilities with White. He was impressed by what he saw.
"They've got a lot upgrades," the 3-star athlete said. "It's new and hi-tech. I liked it."
Noye is expected to attend one of Syracuse's football camps over the summer where he is hoping an offer will surface after he shows the staff what he can do in person.
