This will be the first visit to Syracuse for all three players. Each was offered in November as the Orange looks to add talented depth to its roster for the 2022 season. The Orange currently has 10 players committed in its 2022 recruiting class, only one of which is a linebacker. Syracuse has already lost two linebackers to the transfer portal in Geoff Cantin-Arku and Latarie Kinsler. Players such as Mikel Jones, Marlowe Wax and Stefon Thompson have also become veterans. Meaning Syracuse needs an influx of young talent to develop and learn from those veterans in order to be ready when their opportunity arises. 

Syracuse has one wide receiver committed this cycle, but has lost a couple to the portal in Russell Thompson-Bishop and Taj Harris. A player like Reed would be a big boost to the receiver room and one of the headliners of the class.
