Syracuse Camp Notebook

Syracuse continues their month of camps as over twenty prospects were in attendance Friday night. A few prospects stood out, and one came away with an offer. breaks it all down inside.

Syracuse hosted a couple dozen prospects on Friday for another camp. This one did not feature the same number of players as the previous weekend, but there was some talent on display. One player came away with an offer, and a few more stood out.

Patrice Rene: Despite being only a sophomore, Rene shows a lot of ability. He's tall, long, and extremely athletic. He ran a 4.66 40-time, but that appears to be mostly due to technique issues rather than a lack of speed. He is fluid in and out of his breaks, and has good ball skills. Syracuse likes him as a corner with his size and speed, and offered him immediately following the camp. Rene looks like he can develop into an elite level athlete. He will be transferring from Canada to a high school in the United States for the 2014 season.

Graydon Campbell: A 2015 Canadian offensive lineman, Campbell showed athleticism at the position. He moved well during drills, especially laterally. His combination of footwork, aggressiveness, and strength was evident during one on ones. He didn't leave camp with an offer, but remains on the Syracuse radar. Don't be surprised if you hear his name come back up when the Orange ramp up their 2015 recruiting.

Jonathan Sutherland: Going into his freshman year this season, Sutherland is still very, very young. However, he flashes potential as a corner. He moves well, has solid football instincts, and isn't afraid of playing with the older prospects. He more than held his own during one on ones, blanketing the opposing receiver on multiple occasions. He's a name to keep an eye on for the 2017 class.
