Conway To Help Fix Orange Offensive Line?

Part of the big reason for the Syracuse offensive struggles last year was the offensive line.

 

Syracuse has some help coming in in offensive tackle Cody Conway. The 6’6″ 280 pounder from Plainfield North High School in Plainfield, Ill., is a verbal commit to Syracuse and could help a desperate offensive line, especially after it loses Sean Hickey.

 

The blocking was nearly horrendous, and the running backs could barely find holes to break into the open field. Syracuse backs Prince-Tyson Gulley, Ervin Philips, Adonis Ameen-Moore, Devante McFarlane, and George Morris combined to rush for 1,415 yards this past season. How bad is that? 22 running backs in college football last year rushed for more than that number in a single season.
Sure, some of that is the play calling, but Conway is a big body, and very similar in shape and size to Hickey. Conway is listed as a three-star recruit, according to ESPN. Although he made his commitment back in May, he also received offers from Buffalo, Illinois, Rutgers, and Western Michigan. He also received a offer from UConn, according to Rivals.

 

Syracuse is an excellent fit for Conway because of departing players not only in Hickey, but key players such as Michael Lasker and Rob Trudo after the upcoming season.
