Syracuse Football: The Vacancy Sign Is Lit

Nolan Weidner wrote a piece today details all of the many openings that have popped up on the 2012 Syracuse Orange Football roster and what that might mean for the scholarships currently (and not currently) on the table.

Nolan confirms what Rahme first reported, that Dorian Graham is gone. "Graham has told SU coaches he's going to try his luck in the NFL draft."

He also confirms that #SHAMARKO and Chandler Jones are going to test the NFL Draft waters but will not hire agents, so, all hope is not lost. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Art Jones did the same thing and returned.

Phillip Thomas is technically suspended for a year but he's made it clear via social media that he's gone.

All of that means that SU will have at least three new scholarships available (Adam Harris' career-ending injury is the third).

The Orange currently has 20 verbal commitments in its Class of 2012, not counting linebacker Darius Parson, who has reopened his recruitment after being told by coaches there wasn’t room for him in the current class.

Nolan says that there are two other commits in danger of not making grades.

Assuming Marcus Sales returns and Jonny Miller does not, the Orange will have roughly 61 returning scholarship players heading into next season.

It's gonna be an interesting off-season.
