Dontae Strickland is one of the most talented prospects in New Jersey in 2015. The Garden State has been one of focus for Syracuse this cycle. Strickland pledged Orange on Saturday, which could have an impact on their other targets in the talent-rich state.
Several gave CuseNation.com their reactions right after Strickland committed.
Daivon Ellison: "HUGE."
David Ryslik: "It pushes for Syracuse even more. Me and Daivon are souped right now!"
Jordan Fox: "So happy for him. He's worked so hard and I know he will do great things there. It's great to have another Jersey guy there that I am close with. So yea, it makes me feel more comfortable."
Jake Pickard: "Pumped. He's a great player and will definitely cause a chain reaction for Jersey recruiting."
