Delray Beach (Fla.) Atlantic three star tight end Adly Enoicy has an impressive offer list as a coveted prospect from a talent rich area. One of the schools that has been showing a lot of interest recently is Syracuse.
"We've been in touch a lot," Enoicy said. "We've been e-mailing a lot. I've also made a few phone calls. I've been talking to (offensive coordinator) coach (George) McDonald and also the recruiting coach (Eric White).
"They talk football a lot. They also talk about how things would be if I would come to the school. What they expect from me on and off the field. We talk about the visit and whatnot. Just stuff about the school in general."
One reason why the Orange are on Enoicy's radar is his relationship with George McDonald. McDonald has been recruiting Enoicy for years and developed a strong rapport between the two.
That is not the only reason the 6-foot-4 tight end is giving Syracuse a serious look. His former high school teammate and close friend, Brisly Estime, is currently making plays as a true freshman for the Orange.
"We keep in good touch," Enoicy said. "We text here and there all during the football season. He texts me telling me good luck and giving me some advice. I text him good luck and tell him good game and whatnot. He doesn't really try to persuade me to Syracuse or anything. He just talks to me like he would if he was still here in school."
Enoicy keeps up with how Estime is doing in Central New York. In fact, when Estime caught his first career touchdown pass against Wake Forest, Enoicy was watching.
"Yeah I watched that game," Enoicy said. "I was really happy and proud for him. The night before, we had a football game and we scored on that exact same play with me. I did the same thing he did. I found that kind of cool. I was proud of him and his family also."
Given the regional powers pursuing Enoicy, do the Orange have a real shot to land the talented prospect? Not only does Enoicy say yes, but he has an official visit scheduled for January 31st, just a few days before national signing day with the opportunity for the Orange to make the last impression.
"I'm very interested in Syracuse along with a bunch of other schools that have offered," Enoicy said. "Syracuse is a great school. They have a great academic program and are also working on some things. They're a good football team in general.
"They don't really have to do anything in particular to get me out of state. I'm just looking for the best opportunity pretty much. It's pretty much going to come down to which school is the best fit for me. Which school has the best academics to go along with football."
