This week Class of ’23 target Derrick Bohler received his first FBS offer, and it was from a Power 5 school: Syracuse. The Palmetto, FL wideout tweeted about it excitedly on Tuesday. Hey, even if it’s “Syracuse University” instead of “University of Syracuse,” we’ll let it slide. Bohler is fired up.
Bohler checks in at 6’2″, 195 lb. and is described as “college ready frame-wise as they come in high school. He compliments that great size w/ nice speed & hands,” by The Crib South Florida, a recruiting news source. Bohler could also fill in as a tight end this fall.
Bohler is originally a Texas product. As a sophomore at Reagan HS, just north of San Antonio, he went over 500 yards receiving and won a district title as his team went 9-2, according to The Crib. He flashes soft hands on film, and makes pass catching look smooth and natural. The coaching staff at Reagan also used him on end-around runs, showing off his elusiveness in the open field.
Recruit210, a San Antonio football recruiting handle, also reported the news.
Dino Babers is the first one to the party on this sophomore. A football career playing against San Antonio and South Florida competition is about as solid a resume as you can have. If Bohler can prove to be a productive target at Palmetto, SU will have a very encouraging prospect on its hands. We know Babers’ offense can only thrive with a great quarterback and big play wide receivers. It’ll be fun to watch Bohlers develop and whether Syracuse’s early belief in him turns into a commitment. The Fizz will keep tabs on Bohler throughout his next two seasons.
