Homstead (Fla.) South Dade cornerback Antwan Cordy was offered by Syracuse early on the process. The talented corner remained interested in the Orange, but not much was reported about where things stood.
Syracuse continued to stay in touch, and now could be considered the favorite to land Cordy. Offensive coordinator George McDonald visited the South Dade Senior High standout on Wednesday.
"It went great," Cordy said. "We talked about the cold weather and everything. He was just keeping it real with me. It's pretty cold up there and we were talking about my visit for the 31st to Syracuse. I told him I was ready for the visit and that the cold didn't scare me."
The two have developed a strong relationship. Cordy trusts McDonald and is excited about his official visit.
"Coach McDonald is a good man," Cordy said. "He's a real cool dude. He's always straight with you. He never lies to you. He just keeps it real. That's what I like about him. We've been developing that bond together."
Cordy and fellow Sunshine State cornerback Trumaine Washington are close friends who both hold Syracuse offers. They will be taking their visits together and have discussed playing together at the next level.
"We've been talking about that a lot," Cordy said. "We're really close and I think this has made us even closer. We care a lot about each other and we're going to take that visit together on the 31st. We ‘re going to hang out while we're up there and we plan on playing together."
The official visit on the 31st will be big for Cordy. In fact, there is a good chance he gives Syracuse a verbal if the trip goes as expected.
"I want to see if it feels like home," Cordy said. "I want to check out the campus, get a feel for the school and the team. Things like that. Just see if it feels like home. If I feel at home I would commit, most definitely."
