Syracuse football went 3-9 this season, including five straight losses to end it, so you'd think recruiting would be a priority.
But wide receiver recruit West Lindor, who committed to the Orange in July, told Syracuse.com that he's now going to look elsewhere. The reason?
The coaches were ignoring him.
"I messaged them multiple times and they ignored me," Lindor said. "Wish I could've balled out with Syracuse, but I need to do what's best for me.
"It kind of sucks because I wouldn't have left them for any program. I kept my word, but then again life isn't always fair and I accept that."
As Syracuse.com points out, this story is very similar to one from just a month earlier, when cornerback Gerald Robinson decommitted and said the reason was "nobody" from the school was keeping in touch with him.
That's a bit of a concerning trend. Perhaps the staff at Syracuse just keeps its phones on silent? Either way, the staff just might want to look into this.
