Quarterback A.J. Long has already committed to Syracuse in 2014, and now he may have a target in Trevon Lee from Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Syracuse has made an offer to the wide receiver from Cardinal Gibbons High School. Lee is a three-star recruit, according to Rivals, but a four-star recruit for ESPN’s Recruiting Nation.
Lee stands at 5’11” and 167 lbs., and runs a 4.49 40. He has good speed that can frustrate defenders. While the backfield should be SU’s strength for awhile, George McDonald knows wide receivers, and is trying to stockpile possible go-to guys.
Lee had 11 touchdowns his junior year and caught 36 passes for 706 yards. He averaged 19.6 yards per reception, clearly a big play threat. Syracuse has yet to land a wide receiver for this class. It has already received commitments from four linebackers, a defensive back and of course, Long at quarterback.
Long is talking about winning the ACC in 2014 and adding playmakers would help the cause. But it won’t be easy. Lee he has a long list of offers. Some great academic schools rank high for Lee. California, Duke, Nebraska, Stanford and Vanderbilt are all listed atop Lee’s Rivals schools, and all have made offers. Arkansas, Auburn, BC, Clemson, Illinois, Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, NC State, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, USF, USC, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Wisconsin have also all made offers.
It’s a very lengthy list, but he will come up with a top five by the end of the month reportedly. While SU has Long to throw him passes, Stanford has landed quarterback Keller Chryst from Palo Alto, CA. He was the No. 2 quarterback in the Class of 2014 according to Rivals.
Orange Nation is hoping by the end of July, Syracuse makes his top 5 cut.
