Syracuse's latest recruit to make it official is QB Alin Edouard, who's been a strong verbal for the Orange since October.

Yet another recruit from sunny South Florida comes to Syracuse! This time, it's Hialeah High School QB Alin Edouard, who's been verbally committed to the Orange since October.

Stat Me: Edouard is 6'2" and 181 pounds, with plenty of speed for a dual-threat (he runs a 4.57 40-yard dash). Rivals rated him among the top 100 prospects in the state of Florida, which is actually a pretty big deal.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 3*, Rivals - 3*, 247 - 3*, ESPN - 4*

Who's Crying?: Arizona, Boston College, Louisville, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Penn State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest. He'd also verbally committed to Miami way back, before backing out.

Money Quote: "I'll be the face of that program (Syracuse) soon," Edouard told Nate Mink at We're looking forward to it, Alin!

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: South Florida recruit? Must be George McDonald! As he tells Nate Mink in the piece above, Edouard sees McDonald as another father figure to him, which probably explains why a lot of recruits gravitate toward our offensive coordinator.

Fun Fact: Edouard is good friends with fellow Miami-area resident and SU recruit Steve Ishmael. Edouard's early commitment actually helped bring Ishmael, the three-star wideout, into the fold for the Orange. Thanks, Alin!
