The 2018 Syracuse Recruiting Class. The basic overview of the class, the relative strength, what you need to know if you don’t care about recruiting, the star, and the depth chart hole going into the season.
Syracuse Recruiting Class Overview
Who doesn’t want to be a part of this passing attack? The offense might have its quarterback for the near future in Chance Amie out of Texas, and he’ll get a few decent running back prospects – starting with Jawhar Jordan out of Arizona – to help the cause.
There’s not much for the offensive line, but the receiving corps is full of terrific options.
The D needs help after a rough few seasons, and it’s mostly coming from the linebackers. Cameron Jonas is a terrific safety out of South Florida, but there need to be more of him and there’s not a lot for the defensive front.
The linebacking corps, though, is full of options all across the country. They need to get bigger, but the staff is recruiting speed.
The Syracuse Class Is Heavy On …
Again, everyone wants to be a part of the Orange fun on the Dino Babers offense. The best of the bunch is Edward Hendrix out of Washington DC – he’s a 6-4 deep threat who fits what the attack has done over the last few years.
Anthony Queeley out of Orlando and Taj Harris form New Jersey are two other dangerous targets to get excited about.
The Star of the Syracuse Class Is …
QB Chance Amie, 6-4, 205
Iowa State, Virginia, UCF and Rutgers were the main schools that wanted him, but give him a little bit of time, and he’ll be a statistical star. The dual-threat star from just outside of Dallas is dangerous on the move with a live arm and the skills to take off at any time. It won’t be his quarterback gig this year, but he might just be the top backup behind Eric Dungey.
The Syracuse Biggest 2018 Depth Chart Hole Is …
Steve Ishmael caught 105 passes for 1,347 yards and seven scores, and Ervin Phillips caught 89 balls for 904 yards and four scores. They’re both gone.
There might be a few young options waiting in the wings to do more, but there’s a reason why this recruiting class is loaded up on receivers. A few of them will be thrown to the wolves.
