Syracuse Football signs 17 recruits on National Signing Day
Dino Babers makes it clear, the stellar athletes that signed with Syracuse Football on Wednesday are more a product of the Clemson upset in 2017 than the success of 2018's breakout season.
If that's the case, look out in 2020.
The Class of 2019 is by all accounts outstanding, one that features athletes that picked Syracuse over big time programs, including Miami and Clemson among others.
It includes Cooper Dawson, picking the Orange over Clemson in a special way.
Overall the class features players from all over the United States and even two of the top recruits in Canada.
Here's the full list:
Courtney Jackson, Safety, Pennsylvania
Andrew Tuazama, Defensive Lineman, North Carolina
Aman Greenwood, Defensive Back, Washington, D.C.
Joe Rondi, Defensive Lineman, New Jersey
Mikel Jones, Linebacker, Florida
Anthony Red, Offensive Lineman, Connecticut
Garrett Williams, Defensive Back, North Carolina
Matthew Bergeron, Offensive Lineman, Quebec, Canada
Luke Benson, Tight End, Pennsylvania
Lee Kpogba, Linebacker, North Carolina
Adrian Cole, Defensive Back, Florida
Cooper Dawson, Defensive Lineman, South Carolina
Ishmael Goulborne, Defensive Lineman, Florida
Darius Tisdale, Offensive Lineman, New Jersey
Geoff Cantin, Linebacker, Canada
Cornelius Nunn, Defensive Back, Florida
Jawhar Jordan, Running Back, New York
The Orange still has roughly five spots to fill in this class, or possibly through transfers before hitting its scholarship limit. Coach Babers and his staff will hit the road recruiting hard after the bowl game for the rest of the Class of 2019 and the beginning of the Class of 2020.
