With the new early signing period in December, the traditional February window isn’t as big of a deal as it used to be. However, there are still plenty of impact players out there ready to pick their destination. Today doesn’t project to be that busy for Syracuse, but they have already gotten some good news t. Here’s what you need to know right now.
7:20 a.m. – Quarterback David Summers officially signs with the Orange. Summers committed to Maryland in May before flipping to the Orange last month. The QB position was a priority for SU after Chance Aime announced he was transferring.
Summers joins Tommy DeVito and Clayton Welch as signal callers on the Orange roster this spring.
7:45 a.m. – Three-star defensive end Jason Munoz officially signs with the Orange. Munoz made it official a week after he announced he was flipping from Miami to Syracuse. Obviously, the coaching change in South Beach has made 2019 recruits think twice about their commitments. The Orange are happy that Munoz decided to change plans and head north.
This signing continues the pipeline of talent from the Miami area to Syracuse. Many recruits have come from Florida to Syracuse over the past few years, including Andre Cisco. Dino Babers figured out early in his career how to convince recruits to leave the sunshine for the snow.

11:05 a.m. – This is when things started to heat up. Stevie Linton, a three-star defensive end from Georgia put on the Syracuse hat and signed to join the Orange. Linton picked Syracuse over Missouri, Arizona State and USC.
Babers recently made a visit to Georgia to meet with Linton and it appears that move paid off. While he may be a three-star recruit, his upside is clear when you watch his tape. Linton could make noise in the trenches for many years to come.
11:25 a.m. – Running Back Garrison Johnson joined the Orange family. He became the second player to chose Syracuse on NSD. Johnson was originally committed to North Texas, but decomitted back in December.
Kirk Martin, who has heavy ties to the state of Texas, recruited Johnson. He’s a top-100 running back that didn’t have a lot of interest nationally. Johnson chose Syracuse over schools like Indiana and SMU.
A top-100 RB is officially Orange!
