Syracuse Recruiting: Keep The Quarterbacks Coming

via www.imagesbyolivares.com

With the post-Ryan Nassib world rapidly approaching, the Syracuse Orange football team is going to be in the market for a new starting quarterback next year. When they get there, they won't have a lack of options.

Syracuse got a 2013 commitment from yet another quarterback today, this one all the way from Texas.

Zach Allen, a 6-foot-2, 186-pounder from Temple, Texas, gave SU coaches the word he would play for the Orange on Wednesday. Allen is the second quarterback to commit to the Orange, joining Pennsylvania product Austin Wilson who announced that he'd play for SU last week.

Wilson's recruiting struck us as curious since he was more a pocket passer coming into an offense that's apparently going to require a dual threat attack. Allen, meanwhile, fits that dual attack mold perfectly.

The 2013 QBs will join John Kinder, Terrel Hunt and Ashton Broyld in the fold. Likely one of those three will be the next starting quarterback for the Orange but these two will battle it out for the years to come.

Allen has offers on the table from Minnesota, New Mexico, Eastern Illinois, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio and North Texas as well as the Orange. He also apparently had interest from Baylor, Oklahoma State and Houston. You can thank Nate Hackett for putting in the work to get Allen commit with SU,

"There’s a lot of reasons I picked Syracuse University," Allen said about the school in western New York. "Coach Hackett (offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Nathaniel Hackett) did a great job throughout the whole process and stayed on me."

Scout has Allen as a two-star QB while Rivals hasn't rated him. The QB threw for 1,753 yards and 11 touchdowns last season while rushing for 766 yards and nine TDs.
