Groundhog Says: Last Minute Scramble

The final hours before National Signing Day is kinda like your 8th birthday – but with middle-aged men begging you to play the spread for them.

Usually Punxatawney Phil tells us whether there’s six more weeks of winter left or we’ll get a reprieve from the ice and snow sooner than that.

Well, today Phil is sensing other things; like whether South Florida defensive backs will be deciding to commit elsewhere in the conference.

The final hours before National Signing Day is kinda like your 8th birthday – party hats, musical chairs and lots of streamers, but with middle-aged men begging you to play the spread for them.

Syracuse has already benefitted and been burned from the late maneuvering.

Reports are surfacing that Gareef Glashen (pictured), as The Fizz told youone of the fastest players SU had recruited, was changing his mind and going with rival Rutgers.

“(Glashen) was previously commiitted to another Big East school, but was still being recruited by several schools for the last few months. After meeting the Rutgers staff over the weekend, he decided to commit to the New Jersey school.”

Meanwhile, Rivals.com is reporting that offensive tackle Sean Hickey (6-6, 280) of Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pa., has made a verbal commitment to sign with the Orange. Hickey picked Syracuse over Boston College and Illinois.

The late decisions in SU’s favor don’t end there. Defensive end Micah Robinson (6-4, 240) of John Adams High School in Cleveland, Ohio, has made a verbal commitment to sign with Syracuse, according reports.Robinson picked the Orange over Pitt, Kansas, and Cincinnati, among others.

Rivals.com is also reporting that tight end Charlie Copa (6-6, 245) of Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, has made a late verbal commitment to sign with Syracuse.

It’s a 24-hour career fair for Marrone and his staff right now. As guys like Glashen de-commit, scholarships and needs on the roster open. The kitchen’s heating up, can the Syracuse staff in its first full recruiting season handle it?
