"First of all, I like how it's great in academics and how it has the best communications program in the country," Hassan told CuseNation.com. "As far as football, I love the family atmosphere and feel like I can thrive in the offense that Coach Babers brings.
"Also two of my teammates from Dillard are coming to SU and I know that we can do a lot of winning with this great incoming class."
Hassan is a 6-foot-3 quarterback out of Dillard High in Florida, the same school as 2016 signees Kenneth Ruff and McKinley Williams. He had non-power five division one offers, but wanted to play in a major conference.
Therefore he did not sign on National Signing Day and decided to explore walk-on opportunities. USC, Minnesota, Rutgers and San Diego State were also after Hasan.
Hasan says he will receive a partial academic scholarship and will have the opportunity to earn a full athletic scholarship on the future.
