The commits just keep coming in.

Safety Marquise Blair is the latest recruit to join the 2015 Orange football class. The verbal commitment now brings the new Orange class to 15 members.

At 6’3”, 180 lbs., the 3-star recruit is predicted to play safety, but could make a switch to outside linebacker if he has success in the weight room. He also played wide receiver for his high school, catching 11 touchdowns last season. Blair becomes the first safety in the 2015 class that has seen many new commits within the past month. Purdue is the other FBS school to offer Blair.

The Ohio native originally excelled at basketball more than football but has shifted his focus after seeing the potential he has on the gridiron. His coach says he could play as a nickelback but has the athletic ability to move around. Syracuse loves versatility and Blair could see the field early depending on Syracuse’s needs.

Blair is yet another Midwest recruit the Orange has snagged ever since Scott Shafer and his staff took over. Seniors Prince-Tyson Gulley and Micah Robinson are the only other Syracuse football players from the state of Ohio.

The 2015 recruiting class is stacked with offensive line recruits. Blair becomes only the fifth defensive commit of the class. Dana Levine, Anthony Giudice and Brandon Ginnetti are the three defensive line commits, while Shyheim Cullen rounds out the defense as a linebacker. The defense lost former commit CB Davante Davis at the end of May.

It is important to note that players switch around often at Syracuse between offensive and defensive positions once they get to school primarily based on size and playing time. A good example is tight end-turned-defensive end Ron Thompson, who made the switch for the Orange during the 2013 offseason. Former Orange Jay Bromley, who led the Orange defensive line last year, said he expects Thompson to have a breakout season for Syracuse.

Blair is a solid addition for Syracuse who already has a surprising number of commits considering it is only June. With all the uncertainty of commits keeping their word, Syracuse at least has the numbers to keep confident before they sign their letters of intent.
