Syracuse leads for top junior college linebacker

SUNY Morrisville Head Football Coach Terry Dow is positive he knows where first team All Northeast Football Conference linebacker Jamar Atkinson will go to college, in January 2004.

"I'm about 99% certain that he will go to Syracuse," Dow said.

Atkinson originally committed to Syracuse in 2001 when he was a senior at Garfield High School in Woodbridge, VA.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound sophomore linebacker led SUNY Morrisville in tackles this season (106 tackles) and was second on the team in tackles last season. Atkinson will have two years of eligibility if enrolls at Syracuse in January.
