Syracuse snags 1st in 2016 in OT Cam DeGeorge

Syracuse picks up their first verbal commitment in the 2016 class.

Syracuse picked up their first commitment of the 2016 class on Monday as Lynnfield (Mass.) High offensive tackle Cam DeGeorge. DeGeorge is listed at 6-foot-5, 275 pounds. He is a bit of an under the radar prospect, but the Orange have a reputation of finding those type of players before other programs.

The Orange believes they have found a hidden gem in DeGeorge, a talented offensive lineman in the northeast. He visited the campus last week, but not as part of the large group that visited for the spring game.

”I visited last week and I fell in love with the school,” DeGeorge said. “I slept on it and felt the same way the next day. I waited another week and still felt the exact same way that that’s where I wanted to be, so I decided why not? I just felt like I had to do it.”

During the visit on March 29th, DeGeorge checked out everything about the program. The school, the academics, the facilities and practice. He was blown away.

”I loved the facilities and they have the academics that I want,” DeGeorge said. “I love the coaching staff and how they run their practice. If I’m going to spend my next four or five years with them, I should love them and I do love them.”

DeGeorge picked Syracuse over offers from Colgate, Temple and Holy Cross. He says he is very solid in his decision and loves everything about Syracuse.

Syracuse landed five offensive linemen in the 2015 class and have their first this cycle. Last cycle they started the class with a running back from New York. This time around, it is an offensive tackle from Massachusetts.
