"He visited there in December and has two former teammates that play on the team in starting LB Jerry Mackey and walk-on Rotimi Paul. He is close with those two and really felt comfortable there." The only problem with Jackman right now is he has not qualified yet. "Leslie has to take the SAT over again and is taking it the next time it is available."

new coach at Syracuse has not changed anything, Leslie

Syracuse since the coaching change but Coach Cellan
expects to hear something from them in the next few
