Coming off an injury-shortened junior season, Davis transferred to Booker T. Washington High School in Miami this offseason, a national power that will assuredly garner him plenty of exposure throughout the recruiting process.
More than ever, college football's powers are making a push for supremacy in New York City. The Big Ten has opened a regional office in Manhattan, and taken on a series of neutral site exhibition games in nearby Piscataw- (what? They're a full member? R.. really? ...okay, we'll come back to that.) The ACC continues its push northward, with Syracuse billing itself as "New York's College Team", something I guess is technically true in the same way that LaGuardia is an international airport.
The Greensboro Coliseum will host the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament through 2022, building upon the current 16-year relationship.

After coach Doug Marrone left for the NFL, the 2013 signing class stumbled to the finish line and wasn't ranked among ESPN's top 75. Only a handful of true freshmen played regularly last season, including safety Darius Kelly and wide receiver Brisly Estime. Both started for the Orange in their Texas Bowl victory over Minnesota.
ESPN's panelists describe Syracuse forward C.J. Fair as "a tweener.''
Syracuse forward Jerami Grant was among the top players for standing reach and wingspan at the NBA's combine in Chicago on Thursday.
"His stock will never be higher,'' Fraschilla said. The former St. John's then said Ennis' challenge will be to improve show that he stays in the NBA for 10 years. "He's got to improve his shooting and his floater game.''
Orange attackman Kevin Rice was named to the Capital One Academic All-District I Men's At-Large Team on Thursday, May 15. It's the second consecutive academic all-district nod for Rice and the fourth time in the last five seasons an SU men's lacrosse player has earned the honor.
This is the first time since 2005 and only the third time in school history that Syracuse placed two members on the NFCA All-Region first team. O'Hara made her way onto the team as a utility/pitcher after spending time throughout the season as a pitcher, designated player (dp), first baseman and even outfield while Watson took the dp/utility-non-pitcher position, splitting time between first and catcher.
The 6-foot-9 Alexander has a 7-4 wingspan and is the younger brother of Kayla Alexander, who plays for the WNBA’s San Antonio Stars and competed collegiately at Syracuse. Syracuse, Michigan State, Marquette, Virginia Tech and Tulane have expressed interest in Alexander, Blunt said.
Addazio should be commended for the season BC just turned in while Shafer deserves a tip of the hat for continuing the progress Syracuse made under Marrone despite some extenuating circumstances. Results will reveal which man is the superior coach. But with each still in his head coaching infancy, ranking Addazio significantly higher than Shafer is not only perplexing, it’s also unfounded. This will be decided on the field.
ESPN and SNY’s Eamon McAnaney calls in to chat about Syracuse lacrosse’s early exit from the NCAA Tournament with host Wesley Cheng on the Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by SNY.tv. Senior Columnist Jim Stechschulte also calls in to recap the NFL Draft.
Looking at the list of schools that have made offers to Edwards, perhaps he is looking to stay local. There are numerous Big Ten schools on the list, with Syracuse being the lone ACC school.
"He got his degree from SU, and he just wanted to go out there and give it his best shot and let the cards fall where they may," Syracuse coach Scott Shafer said. "He said, 'Coach Shaf, all I care about is getting into camp and then proving myself.' That’s what he’s looking forward to. He and Marquis will be together so that will be nice having those two have each other to lean on throughout the process. It’s hard when you go to a pro camp and you’re alone so that will help both Jerome and Marquis."
