Catching Up With...Catching Up With the Commits

Bob Kalka

After a brief hiatus, let's see how the Orangemen of the future have been playing at the high school level.

When we last caught up with Syracuse football's verbal commits, Zach Allen was building a permanent home in the endzone at Temple High's Wildcat Stadium, Austin Wilson was mounting comebacks, and Augustus Edwards continues to add to one of the most impressive seasons that New York City has seen from a running back in some time.

Bob Kalka was nice enough to give us an update on Zach Allen's game two weeks ago against Waco Midway, in which a 20-14 halftime lead for Temple lead to a disastrous 63-20 defeat. This past weekend proved to be much better for Temple (4-2), who won a thriller against rival Belton, 50-44. Allen (QB, 6'2", 185) completed 12-of-18 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns and ran the ball 16 times for 141 yards and three more touchdowns. As nice as the stats are, Allen seemed more excited by the result:

"To schedule Belton for homecoming and get a win is huge," Allen said. "There is nothing better. People can downplay the rivalry game, but there is so much to it and we are just ecstatic right now."

Austin Wilson (QB, 6'3", 205) has not had as much success over the last two weeks, during which East Pennsboro (4-3) has dropped two straight one-point games: 15-14 to Trinity (6-1) and 14-13 to Milton Hersey (5-2).

Against Trinity, Wilson was 12-of-21 for 205 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. In the Milton Hershey game he completed 8-of-17 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns.

Augustus Edwards' (RB, 6'1", 210) Tottenville (6-0) team decided that they were done giving up points this year, and have rattled off two straight shutout wins: 40-0 over Susan Wagner, and 31-0 over DeWitt Clinton. Edwards outgained the entire Susan Wagner team himself, with 72 rushing yards on five carries up against 70 total yards by Wagner's team. Edwards also scored twice. Edwards was utilized a bit more against DeWitt Clinton, rushing 12 times for 136 yards and a touchdown, and catching one pass for three yards.

Augustus also made the trip to New Jersey last weekend to watch Syracuse take on Rutgers. Hopefully he had a few enthralling Words with Friends games going and wasn't able to pay much attention.

An update on Wayne Williams (DT, 6'6", 335) - I previously mentioned that I couldn't find him on ASA's roster, and it is for good reason. In a conversation with Scout.com, Wayne said that he is not playing this season to preserve an extra year of eligibility for when he reaches Syracuse. He will have three years to play three seasons when he comes to SU.
