One of the top safeties in the 2016 class will “definitely” take an official visit to Syracuse, he tells CuseNation.com. Owings Mills (Md.) McDonogh School safety Eric Burrell has been high on Syracuse every since his visit last month. That has turned into one of his five officials.
A date has not yet been set, as the two sides are still working on the details. But the Orange will get one, that much is known according to Burrell.
”I really like the head coach (Scott Shafer),” Burrell said after his June unofficial visit. I met with him after the camp. I talked to him for about an hour or so.”
Bonding with the Syracuse coaches was what really solidified his interest in the Orange. Syracuse has stayed in touch ever since to make sure he knows that he is a big priority.
That leaves one left on his slate. He told CuseNation.com last month that Duke would most likely receive one, which could round out his five.
The official visits will likely tell the tale with his recruitment, and Syracuse will get their shot to make a big impression.
