Two-Star QB Mitch Kimble Commits To Syracuse

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Two-star quarterback Mitch Kimble announced his verbal commitment to Syracuse on Monday.

Remember that sky-is-falling feeling when Doug Marrone and Nate Hackett bolted to Buffalo and a few recruits, including quarterback Zach Allen, decommitted because of the uncertainly surrounding the team, specifically the offense.

Well, all of those uneasy feelings should be gone now considering the Orange landed their fourth offensive recruit in the Scott Shaffer/George McDonald era Monday, as quarterback Mitch Kimble (Jerseyville, Ill.) announced his verbal commitment.

Kimble, a self proclaimed dual-threat quarterback, told Syracuse.com's Michael Cohen he visited Syracuse in mid-January and knew it was the place for him after frequently speaking with the Orange's new coaches over the last few weeks.

"I could just tell talking to the coaches and getting to know them and being around them," Kimble said. "I knew that they wanted me, and I really considered that. It’s a big reason why I wanted to go there. I couldn’t be more excited."

Kimble said the coach he connected most with was quarterback coach Tim Lester.

"I think the coach that I really connected with was probably Coach Lester," Kimble said of Tim Lester, the new quarterbacks coach at Syracuse. "He’s the guy I will be working with all the time, and I really enjoyed getting to know him. I thought we really had a good connection. It feels like we’ve known each other for a lot longer than we have."

The 6'3, 190-pound quarterback was also considering offers from soon-to-be ACC rival, the N.C. State Wolfpack.
