Just one day after picking up an offer and two days after camping, Exeter (N.H.) High offensive tackle Willem Froumy has committed to Syracuse, he tells Scout. Froumy camped on Sunday, was offered on Monday and then committed on Tuesday after speaking with the Orange staff via telephone.
"After the BBCuse (Saturday barbecue event for recruits), my family and I went to the mall nearby," Froumy said. "If I had counted every Orange shirt I saw, it would've been over a hundred. When we got back to our hotel, two workers asked if I was here for the football camp and told me I should end up at 'Cuse.
"I made a friend at the camp (Anthony Queeley) already telling me to 'join the family.' Not to mention the Twitter army that's had my phone buzzing for the past two hours. When you commit somewhere, you pick a new family for the next four to five years of your life. All of Syracuse is one big family."
Froumy knew in order to pick up the offer, a strong camp performance was needed. Despite the constant communication previously with Syracuse assistants Reno Ferri, Brian Ward and Mike Lynch since May, the camp was the opportunity he needed for the offer extension.
Once the offer came, Froumy said he and his whole family were screaming with excitement. He then spent the next 24 hours weighing his options and discussing them with his family and high school coach. Ultimately, Froumy decided Syracuse was his future home.
During his weekend visit, Froumy did more than just camp. He attended Saturday's barbecue and got to see much of the campus.
"The campus is beautiful," Froumy said. "They took us on a tour and we got to see the Dome. I've been to Pats games, but the Carrier Dome is cooler than Gillette (Stadium). My family loved it. I really got along with the coaching staff. They're a great bunch of guys."
Froumy picked Syracuse over offers from Bryant, Maine, UMass and New Hampshire. He is Syracuse's second offensive lineman in the 2018 class, joining 4-star center Tyrone Sampson. Froumy will come in as an offensive tackle.
