Syracuse wants to target regional prospects more in 2017 than they were able to do in 2016. They have offered several prospects in New York and Pennsylvania, and extended another on Tuesday. This time to five-star cornerback Lamont Wade out of Clairton High.
Wade is the 17th best prospect in the entire class and ranked as the second best player at his position. He currently holds offers from Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Auburn, Michigan, UCLA and a host of others.
Scout National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn describes Wade's game as someone who possesses speed and physicality.
"Wade is being recruited as a running back and cornerback, and it is easy to see why," Dohn said. "He is a tremendous athlete with an ability to change direction and get to full speed in a few steps. He has acceleration and balance, and the ability to out-run a secondary or catch up to a receiver. He is elusive as a running back and physical as a cornerback. He tracks the ball well and makes big plays all over the field."
Syracuse is looking at Wade as a corner.
