Syracuse is no different, and already has several either scheduled or in the works. Here is the latest intel on some top Orange targets.
1. Henry Belin Season Ends, Focus Shifts to Recruiting
Belin wrapped up his junior season as Cardinal Hayes blew out St. Frances. Belin was sensational in the game, completing 75% of his passes, throwing for 267 yards and four touchdowns. Two of his touchdown passes were over 80 yards. Now that his season is over, he is shifting his focus to recruiting. Belin says he will start scheduling June visits over the next couple of weeks. Syracuse is in line to get one of them.
2. Syracuse Lands 2021 ATH as Preferred Walk-On
Clay Masters out of West Linn High in Oregon committed to Syracuse on Sunday. Masters can play wide receiver, running back or cornerback, though he is likely coming in as a corner. In six games, he finished with 37 catches, 567 yards, 8 touchdowns, 5 interceptions and 9 pass breakups. A versatile athlete who ran a 4.55 40 at a camp event in October, Masters has some potential.
