Syracuse or Louisville? Elite WR Stacy Coley Decides Where Final Visit Will Be

Could Syracuse really land Stacy Coley? Apparently, it’s not just a pipe dream for one of the best did receivers in the country to be wearing Orange this fall. Coley is deciding between Louisville and SU as his final official visit before February’s National Signing Day.

The four-star prospect is ranked the 8th best wideout in the country by Scout. In the ESPN 150, he rates as the 4th best receiver in ’13. And new offensive coordinator George McDonald could end up pulling off major dividends before he ever rolls out his first game plan.

Coley hails from Oakland Park, Florida and McDonald’s Sunshine State ties run deep. The 6’1″, 175 lb. game breaker has offers from the biggest football powers in the country. Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Georgia, Louisville, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Oregon and Notre Dame have all extended scholarships to Coley.

So how does the Orange compete with the most impressive names in college football? The McDonald factor. Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times tweeted Friday:

“Oakland Park Northeast coach Donnell Bennett says four-star WR Stacy Coley is visiting USF this weekend. In mix w/ FSU, Miami, Lville, Cuse.”

McDonald was named Miami’s wide receivers coach a little over a year ago, but he’s been knocking on doors and developing relationships in South Florida for years. Oakland Park sits just north of Ft. Lauderdale, and it would be a major coup for SU to swoop in and land a player of Coley’s caliber from the Florida schools.

When McDonald left for the Arkansas job last month, Coley told the Orlando Sentinal:

“It’s getting crazy now that McDonald left and he was my position coach. It’s getting crazy. Now I really, really have to look into Miami. [Coach MacDonald] is a good coach and he communicated a lot with me. He just stayed in touch throughout everything and now he’s left. He’s a great dude.

“Coach TRich … he’s just trying to communicate heavy now ever since coach McDonald left. He’s just trying to play the role of getting me to Miami telling me the stuff that everybody else said. It leaves me stuck right now. Ever since Coach McDonald left, he was doing all the recruiting and now that he’s leaving my own backyard, it’s going to be kind of hard.”

Where will it end up landing Coley? It’s hard to imagine Syracuse winning such an intense recruiting battle over some of the nation’s college football powers. But there’s other names in the mix that the new staff has brought to SU’s table, even if Coley’s not one of them. Syracuse has added a wideout in Corey Winfield over the last week, so it looks like the new staff is already revamping the outside skill positions inside the Dome. If SU can get Coley to the Hill, however, it’ll officially be the dawn of a new era at Syracuse.

    McDonald has a reputation as a recruiter that no one on the previous staff could come close to with the exception of Adkins, who was rated a top 25 national recruiter i think when he was at Tennessee. The great thing about McDonald, is his ties to Florida, a key state for every big time school, but especially now that we are in the ACC.
    This new staff should do well. Let’s give them a chance and stop crying the blues about the loss of the previous staff. Go Cuse!!!

  2. CuseOnly says:

    Love this staff!! I just commented on another story that Corey Cooper and Alex Hayes are Orange.

    As well as Patrick Perles is our new Offensive line coach.

    GO CUSE!!!!

  3. Derek says:

    Landing Corey Cooper is huge! The WR position is getting pretty deep. Getting Stacy Coley on top of it would just be amazing.

  4. Derek says:

    Also, with ridiculous WRs, I wonder if that helps us land a great QB next year. Lot’s of great targets to throw to.

  5. AJ says:

    I cant wait to see what this staff can do with a full season to recruit. They’re getting some great talents right now. If they can land Coley, Mooore, The Db out of Rochester things will be great.

  6. Dr. bill says:

    It is looking good so far!! Sometimes, change is good!!! Just because things change..doesn’t mean the bottom is dropping out. I could not believe all of the doom and gloom negative posting when Marrone left…..I was a Marrone supporter from day one…..think he did a great job…and wished him well when he got his promotion. Now, it is time to root for Shafer and this staff!!…Go Cuse!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Terry says:

    What did Adkins get the SUFB program-talent wise that signed?? Nothing super!! Lost more than he got. SU has over a week left to get the thoroughbreds into the program. SU finally is climbing the Rivals.com ratings. GO SU GO!!

  8. Smitty Section 129 says:

    Schafer and his staff definetly look like they know how to recruit. This class is starting to look very good.

  9. Smitty Section 129 says:

    Augustus Edwards and Smith where are you, we need you and want you in the SU uniform. Keep the NYC pipeline flowing.

  10. Chris says:

    Scout rivals espn and 247 say we haven’t offered the stacy yet? Am I blind ha

  11. Ron says:

    @D.A.

    What a story,man what a story. Two great receivers,one signed and the other is on his way. Unbelievable.

    I believe this staff is better than the one that left. Dr. Bill agree with everything that you posted. The class of 2013 is going to put Syracuse back on the national football map. Let’s all hope that we can keep this staff together longer than a 4 year span.

    Go Cuse;

  13. Terry says:

    Mr. Williams might still have a issue there concerning current recruits in NYC/LI!! He’s an issue the new staff has to deal with, if they want a presents in NYC/LI, for years to come. Maybe Coach A. had enough of that and now he’s in Buffalo!!

  14. chris says:

    If McDonaldandShafer can bring in a kid like Coley then the prophesy of despair about the future may in fact be incorrect.Some very close associates and Syracuse football fans from way back have declared that the program will never be back in the national spotlight. Personally sfter watching this coaching staff do their work I have to disagree but it remains to be seen how this recruiting chapter concludes.
