Syracuse Football: Beckett Wales Takes Leave, Omari Palmer Commits

via media.syracuse.com

We begin with some bad news. Syracuse tight end Beckett Wales has left the program and the university due to personal issues.

"He has taken a leave of absence from Syracuse University for personal reasons. We look forward to him coming back at the appropriate time," was all Marrone would say about the situation.

At least it sounds like he will return at some point. We're counting on Wales to make an impact this year and he was in the mix for prominent playing time at tight end. Fingers crossed that his personal issues get resolved.

On the much happier front, the Orange have their third commitment for 2012. 6-foot-3, 295-pound offensive lineman Omari Palmer told SU on Tuesday that he wants to play for the Orange next year.

Palmer, a junior at Longwood High School, becomes the third member of SU’s recruiting class for next spring. He joins linebacker Myles Davis of Pittsburgh, who attended Milford Academy last fall but injured a knee and will enroll in January 2012, and another offensive lineman, Ben Barrett of Christian Brothers Academy.

"I love the location," he said. "And I love what coach (Doug) Marrone is doing with the program."

Palmer did not have any offers yet but "had talked to Connecticut and Rutgers, as well as some Division I-AA schools."

All three of SU's 2012 commits are from New York.
