National Signing Day, Syracuse Recruiting: A.J. Long Gunning For That No. 1 Spot

Right now it's Terrel Hunt's team. Someday, sooner than later if it's up to him, it might be A.J.'s.

Stat Me: As a junior, Long finished last season completing 61 percent of his passes for 2,476 yards and a 37-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He also rushed for 669 yards and 12 touchdowns, leading his team to a TSSAA Class 2A football championship. By the time he was done there, he had thrown for over 10,000 yards and led them to two Tennesee Class 2A State Championships.

Seein' Stars: Scout 2*, Rivals 3*, ESPN 4*

Who's Crying?: USF, Temple, Arizona, Buffalo

Money Quote: "That's always my No. 1 goal...I'm gunning to be the starter."

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: Tim Lester

Fun Fact: Long has been on campus since the semester started, so there wasn't much drama in his "signing" today.
