Judging by their photos, they're thrilled about it.
The saga of Broyld has made him a well-known name before he even dons the orange (or gray, as it were) and not for the best reasons. When the 2010 New York State Class AA Player of the Year was first recruited in 2010, he sounded like the heir apparent to the SU QB throne.
And then he whipped it out on a basketball court during a game.
Broyld was charged with lewd exposure, sentenced to 80 hours of community service and his football scholarship looked shaky as well. It was announced that Broyld was ineligible to attend SU due to academic issues, though one can' help but wonder if the incident didn't play into things.
Off to Milford Academy he went, where he tore things up, scoring 12 touchdowns through the air and on the ground. He also got his academics back in order cause here he is, back where he belongs. Just keep it in your pants, Ashton. He joins John Kinder and Terrel Hunt in the quest to replace Ryan Nassib.
Meanwhile, I feel like we've been waiting for Myles Davis to get here for years. Likely because we have.
Davis originally committed to SU back in 2009. He ended up not qualifying and spent 2010 at Milford Academy. He unfortunately suffered an ACL injury that derailed his 2010 season, but not before he was rated No. 14 in the Rivals.com Prep School Top 50. The injury forced him to miss the 2011 season.
However, he's still here and still committed to the Orange. Both of these guys went through a lot to get to Syracuse and Syracuse stood by and honored their commitments the entire time. There's something to be said for that. Welcome aboard, fellas.
