Cuse Recruiting Promising Md. Teammates
Offensive lineman Quinton Sales is a player the SU staff has shown great interest in, and he could be on the verge of receiving an offer. Sales, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound guard, appears to be a perfect fit for the Orange offense.
"He's very serious about Syracuse, and they like him at center," said Friendly coach Marcus Berry. "They're going to that zone blocking offense and he's perfect for that. He has got great feet for an offensive lineman."
Sales, who holds offers from Illinois, Wake Forest and Connecticut, plans to visit SU in the coming month.
"I'm not sure when – I've got to look at my schedule – but I'm going to get up there," Sales said. "It's kind of a hike, but it's definitely worth checking out."
Sales has been impressed with SU recruiter Chris White.
"He's a cool guy, straightforward and he told me what he thought of me, He told me I'd be the perfect guy for their new zone offense," said Sales, a solid student who hopes to major in Political Science or Accounting.
Sales isn't the only player from a talent-laden Friendly squad who is being recruited by the Cuse. Cornerback Steve Murray, a 5-foot-9, 170-pounder with 4.4-second speed and excellent cover skills, plans to make the trip with Sales.
"I don't know a lot about them, but I know they're looking to get players and get the program on the right track," said Murray, who is being watched closely by N.C. State and Colorado, but does not have any offers yet. He and Berry expect one could possibly come from the Wolfpack at any time.
Murray, who posted 65 tackles, four interceptions and 12 pass deflections last year, said the D.C.-area representation on SU's roster is a major draw.
"Definitely, because it makes you feel more comfortable. You don't want to go anywhere where you don't feel in tune with everyone. We have things in common, so it helps you jell better."
