Drewes enjoys time at Syracuse

Syracuse is back at Dunmore High in Pennsylvania recruiting a lineman for the second consecutive year. This cycle it's defensive tackle Timmy Drewes, who visited the Orange over the weekend.

Dunmore (Penn.) High defensive tackle Timmy Drewes visited Syracuse over the weekend. It was his first trip to the campus.

"Me and my family came up from Dunmore (Penn.)," Drewes said. "We went around the campus and then walked around the Dome, which was different but in a good way.

"I really enjoyed myself. Then we watched the game and the different things with the defense of 'Cuse. Then I met with coach Adam and talked with him for a couple of minutes."

Drewed spent some time speaking with offensive line coach Joe Adam. The two continued to get to know each other in order to develop their relationship.

"We talked about the game," Drewes said. "We talked about the area and how he's coming down to Dunmore in early May to visit my school.

"We didn't talk about an offer. He wants me to come to one of their one day camps."

Drewes plans on attending one of those June camps. His goal is to snag an offer from the Orange.

"Yeah (I'm coming)," Drewes said. "I want to show them what I've been working on since we lost in the playoffs last year."

The spring game was the highlight of the trip. He liked what saw from Syracuse and even noted one player who caught his eye.

Yeah that number 94 (Robert Welch) stood out to me," Drewes said. "We play similar but I don't have to pass rush because our league is a power league."

The visit, as well as Syracuse's proximity, make the Orange an attractive options for the 6-foot-4 lineman.

"Well family comes first," Drewes said. "Syracuse is two hours away, and that is nothing compared to five for Pittsburgh or four for Buffalo. My brother played at Buffalo."
