K.J. Williams: Syracuse won the battle for A.J. Long's cousin as the 4-star wide receiver announced his decision on Twitter. He spent this past weekend hanging out with Franklin, who said he believes Williams is a solid Orange commit.

Top Prospect

Jamal Custis: One of the skill position players the Orange want the most, Custis has the versatility to play wide receiver or tight end. The 3-star prospect has tweeted that he will be visiting Syracuse on Wednesday. He says Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, and Virginia are also in play.

Out of the Running

Jermaine Eluemunor: The talented offensive tackle is currently committed to UCLA. However, there are rumblings that Ohio State is under serious consideration. While a potential flip is possible, Syracuse is not involved.

Tyler Burke: The 3-star middle linebacker is committed to Maryland.

Noah Beh: Despite taking an visit to Syracuse in the spring, the Orange were never really in it. He committed to Penn State very early.

Trey Klock: Syracuse made the top three for the athletic tight end, but he ended up choosing ACC foe Georgia Tech.

The Rest of the Offerees

Stewart has Syracuse in his top four

Rasaan Stewart: The 3-star safety has recently declared a top four of Syracuse, Boston College, Rutgers, and Pittsburgh. With the Orange going hard after secondary help, he could be in play. A visit will be key.

However, he seems to looking at other schools at the moment having already set officials to Wisconsin and Baylor. UPDATE: Broxton has since committed to Baylor.

Sammy Marshall: The former high school teammate of Austin Wilson, Marshall appears to be off the Syracuse radar given the current situation at wide receiver for 2014.

Tyler Cavenas: Cavenas looks like a backup plan at this point. Syracuse will monitor his production during his senior year, however.
