Scott Shafer and his staff are now rolling along on the recruiting trail. Over the last three and a half weeks the Orange has scooped up four commits, including QB/DB Rodney Williams. The 2-star athlete out of Cherry Hill West High School in New Jersey pledged to SU Shafer and coach Tim Daust decided to offer Williams while he was up at Syracuse’s camp. The 5’11″ 190 lb. speedster plays with his hair on fire, and is already drawing comparison to another former defensive back for SU – Shamarko Thomas.

The Fizz spoke with Williams about why he chose Orange, (“The facilities are awesome. The campus is great. The connections I had with the coaches – it was just perfect.”) plans for his senior season at Cherry Hill, and how his basketball talents have helped him on the football field. Rodney also explains why he’s putting academics before everything else when he arrives in CNY.

What’s his biggest strength?

“My ballhawking abilities. In high school, teams don’t really like throwing to my side. Coaches put me on the best receiver, I usually take him out of the game.”
