Offensive tackle is a critical position for Syracuse in the 2015 class, as they look to take as many as three in this cycle. One that has been on their radar, despite not being offered, is Beverly Hills (Mich.) Detroit Country Day offensive tackle Justin Hunter.
The 6-foot-6 tackle visited Syracuse over the weekend to check out their annual spring game.
"I arrived on Frida and got to spend some time with coach Adam," Hunter said. "On Saturday, coach Shafer spoke with the group and there was a great academic presentation. Afterwards, I was able to enjoy the spring game.
"I really enjoyed it. I think Syracuse is a place I can really see myself at. I really like coach Adam. He's a great guy and really cares for his players."
Taking in the spring game was one of the highlights for Hunter, who thought the game was played at a high level.
"I really liked the atmosphere of the Carrier Dome," Hunter said. "I also saw a great amount of talent on the field along with several explosive plays on both sides of the ball."
Syracuse is going to keep in touch with Hunter, as he looks to snag his first BCS conference offer. He will look into camping with the Orange over the summer and expects the coaching staff to visit him during the spring evaluation period.
Keep an eye on Hunter, as he could become a priority down the road depending on how Syracuse's efforts at offensive tackle progress over the next couple of months.
