Recruiting Weekend Primer

Preview of the last official visit weekend for Syracuse football before National Signing Day.

Syracuse hosted a dozen prospects last weekend, including nine that were not committed to them entering the trip. They snagged all nine of those players by Tuesday. This weekend, there are only two players visiting. Can they land both with National Signing Day right around the corner? 

Adrian Killins is a three-star running back prospect with elite speed and electric playmaking ability. Syracuse loves him as a versatile athlete who can play in the slot and the backfield. Killins is currently committed to UCF, but is at least exploring his options. He took an official visit to Iowa State last weekend, but the Cyclones and Killins seem to have moved on from each other. 

Josh White is a three-star defensive end prospect who was once a three-star quarterback prospect. He transitioned to defensive end this past season and added approximately 20-pounds to his frame. White also has Maryland and Georgia Tech in the mix, but if things go well this weekend, he could end up as part of the Orange's class.
