Syracuse Looking at Rangolam

As the Orange look to add offensive tackle prospects to their 2014 class, a couple of new targets have jumped onto the radar. That includes JUCO OT Khamil Rangolam of Dean College. He discusses his recent communication with Syracuse, his interest in the Orange, and the status of an offer inside.

With Syracuse missing out on offensive tackle prospects early in the 2014 recruiting cycle, they have started to branch out to look for talent.

They offered a prospect from Wisconsin recently, and now have a JUCO tackle on their radar. Dean College (Franklin, MA) offensive tackle Khamil Rangolam has jumped onto the Orange radar.

"Syracuse has been in contact," Rangolam said. "It was about a week and a half ago. Eric White contacted me. He told me they wanted offensive linemen to come in and start right away. And that he would talk to the offensive coordinator about me."

Rangolam is hopeful that an offer will come. If it does, it vaults Syracuse towards the top of his list. He does have an interesting connection to the program, and one that has helped foster his interest in the Orange.

"Hopefully soon," Rangolam admitted. "I would love to come in and start and make an impact as soon as possible. They're definitely a top choice for me.

"I know that Floyd Little, who graduated from my school (New Haven High School in Connecticut), went on to Syracuse. The program helped him to become the man he is today."

The Dean College standout is hearing from several schools in addition to Syracuse, and currently holds two offers.

"I'm also hearing from Oklahoma, Arizona State, Arkansas Pine Bluff, West Virginia, and Georgia State," Rangolam offered. "Georgia State and Arkansas Pine Bluff are the only ones who have offered."

Rangolam has no current timeframe for his decision, and is hopeful he will pick up some major offers during the season.
