Syracuse wants to get back into the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area in recruiting. One of the top players there is three-star running back Tayon Fleet-Davis, who has emerged as a big priority for the Orange.
After visiting in February, Fleet-Davis returned to a school he says should be called "RB-U."
"I got to hang out with the players," he said. "Talked to them, the coaches as well. Just building a better connection."
Fleet-Davis checked out the spring game on Saturday and stayed on the visit until Sunday. During the spring game, he noticed the success of the ground game and said he could see himself fitting in nicely.
"I thought the spring game was a success as a whole team," Fleet-Davis said. "From the running backs, I think that's a perfect offense to be in. I seen every running back get involved and produce.
"I see myself fitting in very well to that offense because I can wear the defense down and set up big plays."
The coaches continued to reiterate that the talented back is a priority for them. Simply put, they want Tayon Fleet-Davis in Orange.
"The message was saying come bring my DMV swag up there," he said. "Turn the culture around. I would be a big piece to what they are doing."
Fleet-Davis said he thought about committing because of the excitement of the visit. The same thought crossed his mind during a previous trip. Despite that, he says he wants to wait until after summer camps before trimming his list or making a decision.
Even with his patience, Syracuse remains one of the schools at the forefront of his recruitment.
"They were always pretty high to me," Fleet-Davis said. "So this really was just showing and reminding me why they are high to me."
