While Syracuse is making some noise in Florida in the 2014 class, they will also look towards the Sunshine State in 2015. One prospect who says the Orange are showing interest is Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Stranahan High safety Richie Kittles.
"Syracuse offered a few days ago," Kittles said. "I knew there was going to be an offer because I had talked to the offensive coordinator. He came out here and let me know I was being recruited.
"He watched me practice and after practice he let me know there was going to be an offer. Then I talked to my coach and he let me know they had offered."
After receiving the offer, Kittles was expectedly excited.
"My reaction was it a great reaction," Kittles said. "It felt real good. I thought about lucky I am and to have an offer from Syracuse, that's really big for me. Right now my interest is very high. Very high."
The Orange were the first to offer the 5-foot-10 safety, but he is receiving interest from two power programs as well.
"Syracuse was my first offer," Kittles said. "I've had interest from Miami and LSU. LSU has shown some interest but not as much as Miami has. I want to go visit Syracuse. I haven't set a date yet but I've got to talk to my coach about that."
Kittles is also friends with a current member of Syracuse's 2014 class, Alin Edouard. He says playing at the same school as Edouard is a factor in his recruitment, but it is still very early.
