Syracuse co-offensive coordinator Sean Lewis and secondary coach Nick Monroe have been very busy men the last few weeks. The duo is recruiting the state of Florida looking for future Orange football players.
According to Monroe’s Twitter page, the coaches have made stops in Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Miami on the trip.
So far one player has committed to SU from the Sunshine State, Booker T. Washington wide receiver Sharod Johnson pledged to the Orange back in April.
Lewis and Monroe are making a big splash having offered over 40 other players in the state. Boyd Anderson defensive back Raheme Fuller received an offer earlier this week.
“I really like the coaching staff. I like the secondary coach, he’s the type of coach I like. He brings a lot of hype. You can’t have a defensive backs coach that is not hype. Defensive backs have to have the most swag on the field,” Fuller said.
In addition to SU, Fuller is receiving interest from Bowling Green, Florida Atlantic and Fresno State. The corner is versatile.
“Anywhere you put me I’ll play to the best of my ability. I prefer man-to-man defense, I’m a press corner. If I need to drop back into coverage every now and then I’ll do it, anything that’s going to help the team win,” he told the Fizz.
Monroe has developed a reputation as one of the best recruiters on the SU staff. Judging from Fuller’s comments, the defensive backs coach is getting plenty of players excited about Syracuse.
