During Syracuse‚Äôs spring game yesterday, SU picked up its second commit of the 2020 class. Running back Sean Tucker from Maryland chose the Orange over Wisconsin, Rutgers, Air Force, and Kent State. He‚Äôs a three-star RB according to ESPN, that joins a crowded backfield that includes Moe Neal, Jarveon Howard, and transfer Abdul Adams. But unlike Jarveon Howard, Tucker is more of a speedy back. At 5-foot-9, 190 pounds, Tucker relies on his burners to break through defenses. And besides football, Tucker is also a track star.

Tucker becomes SU‚Äôs second commit in the 2020 recruiting class, joining defensive end Kevin Lemieux. Dino Babers has had trouble breaking into Maryland, and Tucker is his first recruit from the state in the past three recruiting classes. Granted, Babers may not have been paying much attention to Maryland since his recruiting map covers most of the country. But it may have helped that Syracuse was Tucker‚Äôs first power five offer.
I'm pleased to announce that yesterday I received an offer from Syracuse. I would like to thank head coach Dino Babers, coach Reno Ferri and the coaching staff for making my visit a great experience. @CoachBabersCuse @CoachRenoFerri pic.twitter.com/yWak4iRCXp

Besides speed, Tucker has a quick burst through the hole and has good vision. Looking at his film, he‚Äôs got a great juke move and is very elusive. All in all, he seems like a nice addition to SU‚Äôs early class.
