Signing day is a little over one week away, and Syracuse is looking to close the 2014 class with a bang. CuseNation.com takes a look at which prospects are likely to choose Syracuse by firing up our commitment calculator once again.
The scale is 1-star to 5-stars, with 5-star being most likely to commit to the Orange.
Steve Ishmael: 5-stars () - Ishmael has had Syracuse at the top of his list for months. His relationship with George McDonald is a huge factor. His official to Louisville next weekend is the only thing that could be of concern, but he is still expected to pick the Orange.
Denzel Ward: 4-stars () - Ward took a surprising official to Vanderbilt at the last minute. Still, South Florida and Syracuse are the two schools out front. His official to Syracuse and in-home with head coach Scott Shafer left a big impression.
Zeek Rodney: 1-star () - Rodney committed to Wake Forest during his official visit. Tough blow for Syracuse, who really wanted the talented defensive tackle. This makes Kayton Samuels a big priority.
Kyron Watson: 1-star () - Watson has reportedly ended his recruitment and is sticking with Kansas. His high school teammate and Syracuse commit Treevon Prater is receiving an in-home from Syracuse this week. It is unclear if Watson will get one, but he is a long-shot at best at this point.
Jonathan Thomas: 4-stars () - Thomas put Syracuse on top recently, citing the school's intense recruitment of him and being the only school that told him exactly where he stands. Georgia and Miami have expressed interest lately, however. If either were to offer it could change things. Right now, the Orange are in the driver's seat.
Trumaine Washington: 3-stars () - Washington is loving his official to Louisville, and they should be considered the favorite to land him. Still, he is close friends with Antwan Cordy and the two have discussed playing together at the next level. Washington told CuseNation.com that he is definitely taking his visit to Syracuse, which will give the Orange an opportunity.
Antwan Cordy: 5-stars () - Cordy is very high on Syracuse and will be taking his last official next weekend with the Orange. Syracuse is a strong favorite here and could land a commitment during the visit.
Mikale Wilbon: 1-stars () - Wilbon committed to Nebraska on Sunday. Syracuse had decided to move on and focus on other positions.
Kayton Samuels: 4-stars () - Samuels was a late offeree by Syracuse and seemed to be very excited about the Orange. He is officially visiting next weekend, but could take a visit to Boise State during the week. While Samuels is currently committed to Georgia State, Syracuse appears to be in a good spot with him.
Adly Enoicy: 2-stars () - Enoicy reportedly committed to Florida International last week. His official to Syracuse was in doubt, but his former teammate Brisly Estime tweeted that he's hosting the three star tight end prospect next weekend. If he visits, Syracuse has a shot. But at this point, the Orange should be considered on the outside looking in.
Jalen Harvey: 4-stars () - Harvey was very excited about being offered by Syracuse. His in-home with Tim Daoust went very well. The visit could seal the deal.
Darrius Sapp: 3-stars () - Sapp is big and plays with physicality. He is one of three late defensive tackle offerees that will be visiting the weekend of the 31st. If Syracuse wants him, they could have him. But it will depend on who Syracuse wants at the position.
Justin Hughes: 3-stars () - Hughes is committed to Kansas State, but taking an official to Syracuse. He's a little better than 50/50 to pull the trigger, and the Orange want to add him to their linebacker haul.
