As the December 20th early signing day nears closer and closer, SU football continues to add to one of its best recruiting classes in recent memory. The latest commit, three-star offensive guard Carlos Vettorello, announced he plans to join the Orange next year on his twitter around 8 PM Tuesday night.

Vettorello attends Detroit Jesuit High School and is the 60th ranked offensive guard in the 2018 class, according to 247sports.
The Detroit native chose SU despite having several offers from other power five schools, including Boston College, Oregon, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Vanderbilt and Pittsburgh.
Standing 6’4 and weighing in at 277 pounds, Vettorello would measure in as one of the smallest offensive linemen on SU’s current roster. But, he is extremely athletic and quick, which is perfect for Dino Babers high-tempo offense. To check out his senior year highlights click here
Vettorello is now the 18th recruit to verbally commit to Syracuse from the 2018 class. The Orange currently has the 37th best class in the nation and the 7th best in the ACC, according to 247sports. To put that in perspective, Syracuse is currently ahead of teams like Florida State, Tennessee, Iowa and Stanford. If that ranking stands, this would be SU’s best recruiting class since way back in 2001.
Dino Babers has stressed the importance of having a strong offensive line in the ACC since coming to Syracuse. Last year, SU got pushed around in the trenches and allowed almost three sacks a game, which was the most in the entire ACC and 105th in the country.
