Syracuse is looking towards the junior college ranks for a defensive end, as our premium members have known for several days. On Friday, they extended an offer to Josh Allen out of Long Beach City College. Allen is a 6-foot-4, 260 pound prospect with an impressive offer list.
Allen committed to Arizona in July, be reopened his recruitment nearly two weeks ago. He also holds offers from Alabama, Arizona State, Boise State and Louisville with interest from Arkansas, Oregon, USC and several others.
The Orange already has one defensive end committed in Jamal Holloway, but are looking to add more depth to the roster. Specifically, depth that is ready to contribute right away. Especially with the loss of Donnie Simmons after this season and the possibility that Ron Thompson leaves early for the NFL.
