Syracuse has picked up a second quarterback verbal commitment from the Class of 2013.
Alin Edouard, a 6’1” quarterback from Hialeah, Fla. made a verbal commitment on Sunday night.
Edouard, a 3-star recruit, joins Long, another 3-star quarterback, on Syracuse’s list of future play callers. Edourard was committed to another ACC team, Miami, but decommitted last month. He had offers from Appalachian State, BC, Cincinnati, FAU, Florida International, LA-Lafayette, Louisville, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Penn State, USF, Tennessee, and Wake Forest, according to Rivals.
With Terrel Hunt’s struggles in the last two weeks, it appeared like Long would have an open road to the long-term solution under center. But now SU has two solid options, and that can only be a good thing in a tough ACC. Edouard is considered the 64th best QB in the nation. He comes from a very familiar area for George McDonald: South Florida. McDonald’s offense has left much to be desired in its four losses this year, but his acumen on the recruiting trail has been obvious.
Edouard threw for 926 yards and nine touchdowns his junior year. He also three nine interceptions. He rushed for 557 yards and seven touchdowns. He ran a 4.57 40-yard dash, according to Rivals.
ESPN’s Recruiting Nation lists him as the ninth best quarterback in the Class of 2014. He’s a dual-threat quarterback who is accurate and very skilled. He has great delivery to his receivers and his athleticism allows him to take off with his feet if necessary.
