The Opening football camp ended Sunday but not before Syracuse quarterback commit Tommy DeVito made his mark. While DeVito’s Lunar Beast 7-on-7 team was eliminated from contention, the New Jersey native still had his fair share of highlights.
He was named to The Opening’s all 7-on-7 team following an impressive display in a loss to Team HyperCool. Here, DeVito connects with receiver Devonta Smith in a game on Saturday.
Midway through the day on Sunday, recruiting writer Jeremy Birmingham called DeVito one of the two best players of the day. Clearly others thought so too…
Before the offseason camp circuit began, DeVito was the 77th rated pro style quarterback in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports. He now ranks 26th.
Jim Boeheim Watches Peach Jam
Last Thursday Jim Boeheim spoke with SNY’s Adam Zagoria about the impact Taurean Thompson will have at SU this season.
The two talked at Peach Jam in South Carolina, a Nike sponsored AAU basketball tournament.
Syracuse targets Mohammed Bamba, Quade Green and Hamidou Diallo all participated in the tournament and put on a show for Boeheim. Green was named to SNY’s all Peach Jam first team while Bamba and Diallo were honorable mentions.
Green’s PSA Cardinals team lost in the championship Sunday to MOKAN Elite 93-65.
Who’s next for SU football and basketball?
2017 Virginia offensive lineman Tyran Hunt tweeted that Syracuse was one of his top seven schools. He told the Post Standard that he loves how aggressively the SU staff recruits him.
In basketball, 2017 Virginia point guard Matt Coleman is also high on the Orange. He is yet to be offered, but told Scout.com that Adrian Autry reaches out to him every other day.
