Bel Air (Md.) John Carroll running back Devin Darrington visited Syracuse for the first time on Tuesday. He was able to watch spring practice, speak with the coaches and more during his time on campus.
“It was great, I really liked it,” Darrington said. “We showed up and met the coaches. We watched their practice. It was fast and intense. Then we took a tour, took pics and talked to the coaches some more.”
Darrington said he spoke with the Syracuse coaches about the details of the school and the program. It helped give him some more background on the university and the direction the new staff wants to take the program.
They also spoke about Darrington attending a camp this summer, which he plans on doing. Once the staff can evaluate him in person, that is where an offer may be on the table depending on his performance.
During practice, Darrington was able to see a lot more than what the general public sees. Despite that, he was unwilling to divulge any secrets.
“Can’t say, unfortunately,” he said. “I was told to keep it a secret. Just know it will be great.”
Darrington did say he liked what he saw from the running backs and thinks he would fit in well with what they run.
Overall, Darrington was impressed by Syracuse. He hopes to learn more, continue his relationship with the staff and hopefully snag an offer down the road.
“Right now, I’m considering and open to anybody who is interested in me,” Darrington said. “For the schools that don’t, that’s their loss in the future. I really like it. If they considered offering, I’d definitely take it into serious consideration.”
