Dino Babers and the rest of the Orange coaching staff have been pretty good at offering recruits early, but let’s be honest… Usually when a recruit tweets about his latest offer from Syracuse, the Orange is just one of a handful of schools in the mix.
This week, the script has flipped. SU handed out three “first” offers, which gives the school a unique recruiting edge. Here are the details.

We all know how much Babers loves to recruits receivers. Williams is a class of 2019 wide out prospect from St. Louis, Missouri. He stands at 6’2’’ and weighs 160 pounds.
Judging from his tape, Williams is an excellent route runner who has big time speed. SU most likely won’t be his last Division I offer.
— Antonio Serrano (@Tankserrano1020) April 5, 2017
Like Williams, Serrano plays on the offensive side of the ball. Unlike Williams, the Florida native weighs 295 pounds.
The interest between Syracuse and Serrano is intriguing. The offensive lineman transferred from Belen Jesuit, where he played his sophomore season, to St. Thomas Aquinas, where he’ll play for the next two years.
Suiting up for Aquinas guarantees that Serrano will get looks from other schools. SU does have a recruiting advantage though, and it’s bigger than the fact that Syracuse is Serrano’s first offer.

Syracuse may have been the first to offer Potts, but that doesn’t mean other schools aren’t looking at one of the top running backs from Pennsylvania.
Penn State, Pittsburgh and West Virginia are all also keeping tabs on Potts, per 247Sports.com The Williamsport native will visit with the Nittany Lions staff this month, according to Scout.com.
