Sparta (N.J.) Pope John quarterback Sonny Abramson is one of four signal callers with a Syracuse offer in the 2016 class. The Orange covet his ability, and have remained in constant communication. That includes a recent phone call.
"I actually just got off the phone with (quarterbacks) coach (Tim) Lester (yesterday)," Abramson said. "We just talked about visiting and we just got to know each other better. He's a great guy and he seems to be a great coach as well."
Abramson has also been in touch with Syracuse assistant Bobby Acosta, the Orange's primary recruiter in New Jersey. The 6-foot-2 quarterback says he has a good relationship with coach Acosta as well, calling him a "great guy."
While Syracuse may have four offers out to quarterbacks in next year's cycle, Abramson may be the top priority. They covet his ability and potential, and will continue to pursue him with the same vigor that has helped them land other priority targets in previous cycles.
The attention that Syracuse has given Abramson has made an impression. While he does not have any working list of favorites, he admits he has strong interest in Syracuse.
"You know I haven't really given much thought to an official list," Abramson said. "It's way too early to start putting that together. But I'm definitely interested in Syracuse."
Despite calling it too early for a list, the Sparta (N.J.) product admitted that an early pledge is not out of the questions if he finds a place that feels like home.
"If I feel like a school is the right fit," Abramson said. "And if I want to go there, I have no problem with an early commitment."
