Cajuste picks up 'Cuse offer

Syracuse is still offering prospects even with signing day a couple of weeks away. Yodny Cajuste was one of their recent offerees. He discusses interest in the Orange inside.

Miramar (Fla.) High two-way lineman Yodny Cajuste picked up a Syracuse offer on Wednesday. The Orange are recruiting him at defensive end.

"A lot of coaches came to the school this week," Cajuste said. "I ended up going to the office and coach McDonald was there. I had met him before twice before. The last time I met him, he got my transcripts and ACT score. This time when he came back, he said that they wanted me and that they wanted me to visit on the 31st.

"I'm not sure if I'm taking yet or not. There's a whole lot of schools that want me to visit them that week. I have to talk to my coaches and my family. We're going to decide who gets the last visit."

Despite the late offer, Cajuste does know a bit about the Syracuse football program.

"I know that they've won two bowl games straight," Cajuste said. "I know that they're in the ACC. I know that it gets really cold up there. I was actually talking one of my teammates the other day about how I like Syracuse, they just haven't offered me yet.

"Then today they offered me. I'm looking forward to it. I might just end up taking that visit on the 31st. They're probably the favorite for the last visit."

If he does make the trip, Cajuste knows exactly what he'll be looking for while on the Syracuse campus.

"I'm looking to see if it's a family atmosphere," Cajuste said. "I'm looking for a great coaching staff. I want to see if they have great facilities. I want to see how the city is. I know it's in New York and it snows up there. I'm looking forward to seeing some snow. I've never seen snow before."

Cajuste will officially visit West Virginia this coming weekend. They just hired his former head coach as an assistant, but the Mountaineers have not offered yet.
