Although the current Orange couldn’t capitalize over the weekend at MetLife Stadium against Penn State, Syracuse reeled in its 11th commit to the 2014 class in West Haven, CT RB Ervin Phillips. The 5’11, 180 lb. speedster pledged SU on Sunday morning. Phillips was in attendance at the Meadolands and said the atmosphere was outstanding, obviously getting him excited enough to commit. He also said the ACC competition is something he’s looking forward to.
“It came to whose coaching staff I felt I was more comfortable with or where I could see myself playing with. The Syracuse coaching staff is really down to earth and create a family atmosphere. They’re some great guys.”
“They want to get me in the open field, how ever they’re gonna get me the ball they want to do that. Let me do what I do best, get make plays.”
