This past weekend the Syracuse football program welcomed a host of players for an evaluation camp. Over 20 high school players made the trip to the Hill. The SU staff looked at seven quarterbacks including 2016 target Jarrett Collins who the Fizz spoke with earlier this week.
A second quarterback who came up was 2017 QB Kasim Hill out of Maryland. Hill attended a Syracuse camp back in 2013 as an incoming high school freshman and Scott Shafer offered him a scholarship. Hill is 6’2’’ and weighs 220 pounds. In addition to Syracuse he has offers from Michigan State and Boston College. Watch his tape here.
Syracuse has struggled to bring in a 2016 quarterback this cycle. After Terrel Hunt graduates SU will have Austin Wilson, AJ Long, Troy Dungey and Kenterius Womack to potentially play under center. It might appear that the Orange will be all set at quarterback in 2016, but the coaches have continued to recruit the position. A Hill commitment would add some depth to the Orange’s future quarterback crop, but would be a year later than the SU coaches want right now.
The 2016 QB search is ongoing; Syracuse could end up having a quarterback sign on in February and also receive a commitment from Hill. SU is currently recruiting Florida’s Rex Culpepper and Michigan’s Joshua Jackson. The future of the QB position for the Orange should become clearer once Culpepper and Jackson commit.
