Two North Carolina 2016 running backs visited Syracuse this weekend. Moe Neal, a three-star recruit, and Robert Washington, a four-star recruit, visited campus together. Neal tweeted a picture of himself and Washington at the Dome saying that the pair looked, “fly in that Orange.” Both players have extensive offer sheets.
Two defensive backs also from North Carolina visited SU this weekend as well. 2017 cornerback Aapri Washington already has a scholarship offer from SU, but 2016 corner Will Eason does not.
