Syracuse Football Recruiting: DE Shyheim Cullen Commits to Orange

Recruits seem to be rolling in for Syracuse right now... I mean, this could snowball into something that catches fire.

#ALLTHERECRUITS

While you were busy dedicating all of your attention to the U.S. Soccer team's efforts in Brazil this weekend, Syracuse football added yet another commitment to the quickly growing class of 2015. On an unofficial visit this past Saturday, Lowell High School's Shyheim Cullen gave his verbal commitment to the Orange football team.

Rivals says Cullen is a two-star talent, though he certainly impressed on a local level during his junior year. The 6'0" 210-pound outside linebacker notched 60 tackles (including 12.5 sacks) this past fall. He was All-Merrimack Conference Division I Player of the Year, and at his slightly smaller build has allowed him to bring a ton of speed coming off the edge. From the looks of it, linebacker does appear to be the best spot for him, though defensive end is also being considered (would require him to add some more bulk, however).

Cullen becomes the 14th member of Syracuse's 2015 class, its first linebacker and its first commitment from Massachusetts. You may recall Boston College head coach Steve Addazio pledging to "build a fence" around Mass. in terms of recruiting. Sounds like he should've gone with a wall instead.

So welcome, Shyheim! Your first name's slight resemblance to our hall of fame basketball coach's last name makes this seem like a perfect fit. While verbal commitments are far from binding, we're looking forward to hopefully seeing you in an Orange Platinum uniform next fall.
