With the hiring of Dino Babers as the new head coach at Syracuse, the question regarding recruiting attrition immediately comes to mind. Not only from Syracuse pledges, but those committed to Bowling Green who may want to follow Babers to Syracuse. One prospect who makes sense is Dayton (Ohio) Dunbar High wide receiver Terrance Landers.
He was not overly surprised about the news of Babers leaving the Falcons.
"I mean, I kind of knew it would it was going to happen because of the season they had," Landers said. "They won the MAC."
Landers said if Syracuse and Babers reached out, he would "probably follow him." Babers has not reached out to Landers personally yet, however. Despite that, he had only glowing things to say about the head coach he gave his pledge.
"I love him as a coach," Landers said. "When he was at Bowling Green, he wanted me to look at him as a father (more) than a coach. And by him moving, I think (the) Syracuse family will love him."
So if Syracuse does offer, how does that shake up his recruitment?
"Yes, if he gives me that offer, more than likely my top three would change," the three-star wide receiver said.
His current top three consists of Bowling Green, Pittsburgh and Purdue. He has official visits set up to the Panthers and Boiler Makers, but nothing else currently.Keep an eye on the talented wideout from Ohio as Babers hits the recruiting trail.
