Last week, 2018 WR Jasiah Provillon called in to Orange Fizz Radio to talk to Nathan Dickinson and Logan Grossman about his Syracuse offer, his recruitment, and his high school season. The conversation started on Syracuse football. Provillon says the Orange’s fast-paced offense intruigues him.
“The coaches are enthusiastic about the offense,” Provillon said. “They send me letters all the time telling me how big I can get and what I can do in the offense, how many times I can get the ball. It just motivates me that I know they pass the ball a lot and receivers can do big things in their offense.”
Provillon says he’s ready for the workout of Dino Babers’ offense, too. He already runs a fast-paced offense with his high school team.
The offense isn’t the only thing that might give the Orange an advantage over other schools in this race. The Fizz asked Provillon what he’ll be looking for in a school, and Syracuse actually checks off all the boxes.
“I would prefer to live in the city, because I live in the city now,” Provillon said. “I don’t like being far from a lot of people and places…I’m looking for somewhere I can play early. I want to get reps my freshman year and then eventually start sophomore season.”
Syracuse is a city. It isn’t a perfect city, but it is a city nonetheless. As for playing time, Syracuse has plenty of that to offer. Any team who has only managed seven wins in two seasons has playing time to offer. Syracuse is a three-star football program trying to get a four-star recruit. If it takes playing time to get him here, then it’s playing time he gets.
Provillon then went into his goals for the high school season. He said he wants to get to 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season (right now he’s at 442 yards and three touchdowns), but it’s really all about the team.
“My goal for the season is to do whatever my team needs me to do,” Provillon told the Fizz. “If I have to block a whole game, I’ll block. If I’m a decoy, I’ll be a decoy. If they need me to make plays, I’ll make plays.”
