In the last Monday Recruiting segment, Tyrell Richards committed to Syracuse and the Orange had just finished up some on campus camps. It was an average summer week for Dino Babers and the rest of the SU staff.
Since June 20th, the Orange has brought in a whopping six commits, almost one new player per day. These past seven days have been special.
The Fizz takes a look at all six of the new 2017 additions below.
Nykeim Johnson: The Washington D.C. receiver attended the camp held at SU two weekends ago. He received an offer after putting on an impressive display and promptly committed. In a video posted on Bleacher Report, Johnson is compared to Rams receiver Tavon Austin.
Josh Palmer: Palmer pledged to Syracuse a day after Johnson. The St. Thomas Aquinas (FL) product is also a receiver and has been highly sought after around the nation. When he committed, he also held offers from Louisville, Maryland, Michigan and Pittsburgh.
Dakota Davis: With four skill position players in the class, SU needed some help in the trenches and that’s exactly what it got in Davis. The Maryland offensive lineman stands at 6’5 and weighs 312 pounds.
Eric Coley: Syracuse gained some local flair with this addition. Coley is the son of SU defensive backs coach Vinson Reynolds and will play at Fayetteville-Manlius this season. He may end up at wide receiver or in the defensive backfield for the Orange.
Cameron Jordan: Jordan plays receiver at Half Hollow (Dix) Hills in Long Island. Standing at 6’4, he’s the tallest wide out in SU’s 2017 class. Jordan’s commitment brings the number of receivers in SU’s 2017 class to four.
Allen Stritzinger: The last of this week’s commits lives in Michigan and plays in the defensive backfield. Just like Palmer, Stritzinger also has an offer from Michigan. He’s the 54th ranked safety in the class of 2017, per 247Sports but is being recruited by SU to play running back.
