It's gotta be either Thomas Bryant or Derrick Jones, right?

Who is the mystery recruit that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim thinks he's getting? |

Boeheim can be talking about one of only two players. Thomas Bryant, a 6-9 center from Rochester, N.Y., and Derrick Jones, a 6-6 wing from Philadelphia.

At this point, it comes down to either Derrick Jones or Thomas Bryant. Jones is an athletic but raw wing player, currently ranked as the No. 27 prospect in America by ESPN, while Bryant is a 6-foot-10 post guy who ESPN rates as the 10th best prospect in the country. Both guys pretty much have their pick of schools anywhere in the country.

David Ryslik, Peddie School DT and member of the Top 50, updates recruitment -

"(Syra)cuse is still recruiting me pretty hard in terms of schools I have offers from. Temple still comes hard," he said. "Wake Forest, they said that if I get down there and visit that they’ll probably throw me an offer.

Syracuse football 14 in '14: Is 8 wins a reasonable goal for the Orange? |

Winning 8 games is not a foreign concept to this program. Doug Marrone's teams did it in 2012 and 2010, with the 8th win in both of those seasons coming in the Pinstripe Bowl. The margin for error is slim for Scott Shafer's team to achieve the same, but it can be done.

"None of them have shown enough on the practice field to solidify one (as the backup)," Lester said in an interview on Wednesday. "The problem with depth charts is you have to make an order. I really think that the most fluid part of our room is, 'Who's 2?' because I think any one of the three or four guys there could win that spot."

"I've been in this situation before at Syracuse," MacPherson said. "Everybody thought I was too small, too this, too whatever. You know, but that's their opinion, and that's not the reason I'm here."
