There has not been a lot of news in the world of Syracuse football recruiting of late, but there has been some interesting happenings. CuseNation.com has all of the insider information for you as always.
- Syracuse is back in on some familiar names. Alex Parkinson, a three-star tight end prospect, is back on the Orange radar. Syracuse may be looking to take another tight end or two in this class, and Parkinson could be the top target on the list. He was once thought to be close to committing, but when Syracuse landed West Lindor, his status was in doubt. Now, he is firmly on the radar and Syracuse has been in touch with him within the last few days.
- Likewise is defensive tackle Wes Annan. Syracuse has gotten back in touch with Annan recently and he says he is still very interested. Does this mean the Orange are concerned with where they stand with Jamal Milan? Not necessarily. He is still a top priority and will take an official after this season. But Annan may be a sign that they are covering all of their bases as well as looking for more help up front. Annan said they got back in touch after reviewing his senior film and re-offered because of how much they loved it.
- With tight end a new position of focus, Illinois commit Caleb Reams has been contacted by the Orange. It is unclear how interested he is at this time, but it is certainly a situation to watch with the Illinois coaching staff on the hot seat with a conference win seeming less and less likely.
- Another tight end prospect to watch is Simon Bingelis. He is a very raw prospect, but the Orange are keeping tabs on him. He says assistant coach Bobby Acosta has reached out recently and may attend a game sometime soon.
- Quentez Johnson, a three-star defensive tackle committed to N.C. State, is also on the Syracuse radar. The Orange have reached out to gauge interest. He appears to be a solid verbal to the Wolfpack, but you never know. He is a teammate of Orange safety commit Christopher Fredrick. His coach, Chris Hill, says he is unsure how interested Johnson may be in Syracuse.
- Three-star Sunshine State prospect Trevill Holcy is being recruited by Syracuse as an athlete that could play wide receiver or tight end. He is planning to take an official visit sometime after the season.
- November 1st, when Syracuse faces North Carolina State, several New Jersey prospects will be on campus. Paramus Catholic will bring several prospects including 2016 5-star defensive tackle Rashan Gary, 2015 3-star wide receiver Najee Clayton and 2015 3-star linebacker Saleem Brightwell. A pair of 2016 3-star prospects from other Garden State schools will also be on campus in quarterback Sonny Abramson and running back Tyler Thompson.
