Wisconsin offensive lineman Airon Servais swapped a Bowling Green commitment for a Syracuse one when Dino Babers’ staff came to the Hill. For Servais, that decision had a lot to do with SU’s new head coach.
“I just had a great relationship with Dino Babers and his staff. I got offered by Bowling Green back in July and one of my buddies who went to my high school last year is a scholarship quarterback at Bowling Green right now so I’ve been in contact with those guys for a long time and I’ve just built a great relationship with them. When they made the move to Syracuse they offered me there and I just felt like it was a great fit for me.”
Servais appreciated the early interest from the new Syracuse staff.
“It feels really cool. I’m really glad, once they got settled in there at Syracuse I think I was one of the first guys they contacted and to be the first offer and also the first commit is really special. It makes you feel good knowing that they feel so highly about you.”
The Wisconsin offensive lineman has had two main recruiters between Bowling Green and Syracuse.
“Coach Lewis was kind of my recruiting coach, he had the state of Wisconsin, so I first was in contact with him. Then I first met Coach Lynch at camp this summer at Bowling Green. Ever since I’ve been in contact with both of those guys. We just have a really great relationship.”
Servais cannot wait to start playing ACC football.
“I’m so excited, the level of competition is unmatched. With teams like Clemson, they just got done playing in the National Championship. I’m really excited to be going up against that level of competition. It’ll really challenge myself to get better.”
