Syracuse has had their share of big time quarterbacks come through the program. None more prolific than Ryan Nassib, who put up huge numbers in his senior season. Nassib set all sorts of school records both in a single season and in terms of career numbers.
Now, the Orange are back at his former school, Malvern Prep in Pennsylvania, to try and land another highly touted quarterback from the school. This time, it's 2018 quarterback Kevin Doyle, who was offered on Monday.
"Coach (Mike) Lynch was the one gave it to me over the phone (Monday) afternoon," Doyle said. "He said that he was really impressed with my game film and when he saw me workout live. I am very excited to be offered by such a great all around school.
"I really think the coaching staff will be able to turn them around into the right direction. I'm also ecstatic that I got an offer from the school school Ryan Nassib did. He is very well respected and looked up to at my school. It really is an honor."
Not just Ryan, but the entire Nassib family is a big name within Malvern Prep. Almost a royal family of sorts for their high school football program.
"Ryan, Carl, John are all a big part of the Malvern Community and football program's legacy," Doyle said. "We all look up to them and are reminded of their successes. I have not met Ryan, but I was just with his brother, Carl, the day before the (NFL) Draft. I spent a good amount of time with him talking and talking football.
"They are a great family. I did watch Ryan at Syracuse and thought he was a great quarterback to try and follow in his footsteps."
Dino Babers offense is one that has a reputation as being quarterback friendly. One that takes advantage of a player's skill set and allows him to put up huge numbers. While that fact is not lost on Doyle, he believes his abilities allow him to flourish in any system.
"I think that his offense is a great system," he said. "Especially since it has Jimmy Garoppolo in it and with all his successes. I think I can fit into mostly any offense with my strong arm and athletic ability. So that is not an issue to me."
Currently, Doyle does not have a visit scheduled to Syracuse, but says he is going to try to take one this summer. That will be dependent on his and his parents busy schedule, however.
The 6-foot-4 quarterback's interest in Syracuse is the same as other schools. He says he is grateful for every opportunity and does not have any favorites. West Virginia and Pittsburgh have also extended early offers.
