Syracuse football already has two players committed for their 2017 class. One of them is three-star wide receiver Daewood Davis out of Florida. The receiver position is going to be an important one in that cycle, and Davis gets them off to a nice start.
But Syracuse wants to add to Davis and is in the mix for some big time players. It looks like there are three slots available for wide receiver in 2017, and Syracuse has their eyes set on local product Noah Jordan-Williams and four-star Anthony White Jr., a member of the Scout 300.
White hails from American Senior High School in Hialeah (Fla.). He already holds offers from Illinois, Kentucky, LSU, and NC State among others. One school that has made an early impression is Syracuse.
”I love Syracuse,” White said. “Overall they have been showing lots of love. They also excel in academics. Syracuse is great from an academic standpoint. Syracuse has also produces a couple great athletes like Jim Brown himself inducted into the 1971 Hall of Fame class.
”I’ve also heard it’s great to play inside the Carrier Dome. I’m just appreciative of the opportunity to be recruited by one of the top ACC schools and it’s a blessing. I still got time so I will keep my options open, but Syracuse will likely be considered after talking it over sometime in the near future with my parents and my coach.”
The 19th best receiver in the 2017 class is already developing a strong relationship with Syracuse wide receivers coach Bobby Acosta. While coach Acosta is not permitted to initiate contact directly, he has still made an impression.
”He pretty much gives me messages through my father, the head coach of our high school program,” White said. “He tells me to keep working. He’s a very positive coach in every aspect of football, especially the wide receiver position.”
It is still very early in the 2017 cycle, but Syracuse is thinking big. If they can add White and Noah Jordan-Williams to Daewood Davis, it would be one of their most impressive wide receiver haul in recent memory. Potentially rivaling the 2014 class, which had Steve Ishmael, Jamal Custis and Adly Enoicy.
Expect White to visit Syracuse this fall, potentially for the LSU game, which figures to be a big visit weekend.
