Eric Coley has committed to Syracuse

Syracuse has added a talented athlete with ties to the program to their 2017 class.

Syracuse (NY) Fayetteville-Manlius athlete Eric Coley has committed to Syracuse, he announced on Twitter Saturday. Coley continues Syracuse's run of commitments, with five over the last week. 

"Dino Babers is going to turn the program around and I want to be a part of it," Coley said. "And my brother is there and I can't be far from him."

The talented athlete is versatile enough to play on either side of the ball. He plays quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back in high school. He's a talented kid than you bring into the program and figure the specifics out later. 

Especially with his ties to the program.

Coley is the son of Syracuse defensive line coach Vinson Reynolds. He transferred to F-M from Portage High in Michigan in February. 

He also attended camp last weekend and said he performed very well. He also was able to bond with defensive backs coach Nick Monroe.

"We have a great relationship," Coley said. "He keeps everything real casual and he's real cool just like his personality. I feel comfortable around him."

Coley is ranked the 45th best Athlete overall in the 2017 class, the fifth best in the East region and top athlete in New York.
