SU lands 2025 Offensive Lineman Skylar Harvey

While the 2024 college football season is only a couple of months away, Fran Brown and his staff are also focusing on the future.

Monday they landed some additional help at the offensive line, where the Orange have struggled in recent years. Maryland native Skylar Harvey, a 2025 high school grad, committed to Syracuse yesterday. Harvey, who is listed at 6-7, 350 on Hudl, has played as both an offensive tackle and offensive guard at Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore.

The rising high school senior had a quick turnaround, visiting the SU campus this past weekend and then committing the same week.

The 247Sports Composite three-star had 11 Division One offers, and was a hot pick among ACC schools. Boston College, Pitt and Virginia Tech all offered Harvey, who took both unofficial and official visits to Blacksburg. The Hokies were listed as a favorite for Harvey per 247 as recent as last month.

Harvey is the third offensive tackle commit in the 2025 class, joining fellow three stars Byron Washington and Kardiear Shepherd. While it may be a crowded positional group if the Orange add more commits and transfer, if there’s one area the Orange want depth in, it’s the o-line.

Last season, the Orange saw Joe More, Kalan Ellis and David Wohlabaugh Jr., all offensive linemen, go down with injury. Syracuse had a depleted group heading into its most important stretch of ACC games in October and fell flat. By the end of the season, SU was tied for 87th in the nation in sacks allowed.

Of course, SU got some major help for this upcoming season to protect Kyle McCord in players like Joshua Miller and Codie Hornsby, but it may be even more important in 2025.

For the 2025 class, an offensive line will possibly be helping three-star 2024 commit Jakhari Williams, who figures to be one of the leading contenders to start two seasons from now.

Williams is a lot more mobile than Williams, and having good blocking will be imperative to unlocking his true dual threat capabilities. Commits like Harvey make that all the more likely.
