Samuel Vretman is one of the top offensive linemen in the Northeast. The three-star prospect has size, length and athleticism. He visited Syracuse on Saturday, and although he did not snag an offer, he had a great time on campus.
"See all parts of the football department and also the athletic field house," Vretman said. "We also got to see the academic department for athletes and see what the plan was for new players.
"The best parts were to see all the football facilities, locker rooms, weight room, etc."
Not only that, but Vretman was able to spend time bonding with his primary recruiter, assistant coach Nick Monroe.
"I really liked to talk with coach Monroe," he said. "We were talking about football in general and what the upcoming season for us would be like and how Syracuse was preparing for their season."
Monroe wasn't the only coach Vretman spoke with. He also spoke with offensive line coach Mike Lynch, who said he loved Vretman's film and wants him at Syracuse. Despite that, no offer has come, yet.
"They really iked me," Vretman said. "I have talked to coach Monroe on the phone and everybody on the staff really likes me too. I have a feeling an offer is coming soon actually."
As far as the visit itself, Vretman was impressed by the fan base during the basketball game.
"It was awesome!" he said. "I really like the fans. A lot of school spirit and very supportive fans."
The facilities also stood to the 6-foot-6 offensive tackle.
"The quality of everything and design was very cool to see," Vretman said. "It was really nothing I had seen before in the sense of it having a very radical and swag design."
Vretman said his interest in Syracuse rose after the visit, but an offer would be necessary for him to take things to the next step.
