Cass Tech is home to some of the top division one talent in the Midwest year after year. The 2018 class is no different, and one of their top players is cornerback Kalon Gervin. Gervin was one of 11 players from Cass Tech to visit Syracuse over the weekend, and he left very impressed.
"Great visit," Gervin said. "I loved the facilities and how everything was together. My favorite part was the Dome. It's just bigger than what I expected."
Gervin added that how nice the facilities were really surprised him. They left a lasting impression.
During the trip, Gervin got a chance to bond with secondary coach Nick Monroe. The two were able to talk on a person level and start building their relationship.
"Coach Monroe is a really down to earth guy," he said. "He's just cool to be around."
Gervin entered the trip without an offer. He and his teammates arrived Sunday evening and spent Monday touring the facitilies and the school. Before heading home, Syracuse changed his offer status, much to the delight of the speedy defensive back.
"Coach Reynolds, Monroe and head coach (Dino Babers) all told me basically," Gervin said. "I was just truly thankful."
Overall, the visit really opened the eyes of of Gervin, who will undoubtedly be one of the most sought after prospects in the Midwest in 2018. The Orange have started making an impression early, which will only help down the road.
"They're pretty high," Gervin said, adding he could "definitely" see himself fitting in at Syracuse.
