Two weeks, six commits

Syracuse capped a furious two-week recruiting frenzy on Monday with their sixth commitment over that time frame. CuseNation.com takes a look at each inside.

What an eventful two weeks it has been for Syracuse football recruiting. From June 10th through June 23rd, they added six verbal commitments to their 2015 class. To put that in perspective, by June 23rd last year, the Orange only had six pledges overall for the entire 2014 cycle to date. During the 2013 cycle, Syracuse only had five commitments by that same time frame.

This two week stretch saw Syracuse add those six players over just thirteen days, including four over the final week. That brought the Syracuse commitment total to 15 this cycle. Take a quick look at each below.
