Philadelphia (Penn.) Northeast defensive back Jaquan Amos was one of the players the Syracuse coaches wanted to get a closer look at during their camp the weekend of June 18th. Amos may not have picked up an offer, but he still impressed.
"The camp was nice," he said. "I like the way it was organized. it was nice catching up with my guy coach Monroe and working with him. The drills and everything was not new to me."
Amos calls Syracuse defensive backs coach Nick Monroe a "good guy" who has fun when coaching. The two have a good relationship that he hopes will continue to develop over time.
He hopes coach Monroe calls with an offer in the future as well.
Amos says if the Orange come through with that offer, they would be firmly in his top three.
What type of player is Amos and why is Syracuse in pursuit? The feedback the 6-foot defensive back received after his performance at camp says it all.
"(They said) I am a dog," he said. "I am a ballhawk. I have great ball skills. I am really close to the offer. It could be coming my way in the next week or two."
