Syracuse Picks Up a Late Commit in Falzone

Lou Falzone is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound offensive line prospect from Wyoming, Pa., has committed to Syracuse and is set to sign tomorrow at 1:00 at a press conference at his school.

"Syracuse is amazing. I cannot even explain the way I feel about it. I knew it was a nice place, but I can not even describe how overwhelming my visit was," Falzone explained.

The official visit was a huge factor in tipping the scales in Syracuse's favor.

"It was so cool getting to meet the coaches and what will be my future teammates. The coaching staff will no doubt have things turned around quickly. It is like one big family at Syracuse. Every coach was great and easy to get along with. I figured there would be one or two at every school that you would not get along with, but every coach at Syracuse was awesome. I felt like I was home."

"Ben Maljovic was my host on the visit. He was a really nice kid. He went out to lunch with me and showed me around the campus. He really made me feel like a part of the team. I figured everyone wouldn't pay much attention to a recruit, but everyone was really nice and brought me in and made me feel like I was already a part of the team."

The facilities and campus were also awe-inspiring to Falzone.

"The campus is outstanding. The Carrier Dome is great. It looks better in person. It will be something to get to play in front of that many fans. It is just huge. The new weight room is also awesome. You can tell that the alumni really care about the program when they come back in and donate the money to make something like that new facility," Falzone said.

Falzone, who has only played organized football for two years, was not considering any other schools for football, but he as considering playing baseball on a higher level.

"It was a very hard decision to pick football over baseball. I can remember hitting my first home run in tee ball, so it is hard to give up something you have loved for so long. I came out for football two years ago and it just seemed like a natural fit for me. In the end, it was the fact that Coach Robinson is such a great person and a great coach. I feel like Syracuse will put me in a position to succeed on and off the field and that was the biggest reason why I chose Syracuse. There is not a way to put in words how great I feel about Coach Robinson and the whole coaching staff at Syracuse. They are really great people."

"I did not even want to leave when my visit was over."
