It sounded like the Orange had picked up another three-star talent but Clarke apparently forgot to check and make sure his offer was still valid before commiting..

UPDATE: So it looks like we've got a case of a recruit committing to a school before checking to make sure his offer still stood.

ORIGINAL: Another day, another 2016 Syracuse Orange football verbal commitment. Today, it's three-star safety Devon Clarke.

Out of the big-time Osceola High School program in Kissimmee, FL, Clarke is rated three stars by Scout24/7 and Rivals.

The 6-foot-2, 183-pounder originally committed to play for the Oregon State Beavers in March but decommited at the beginning of June, opening up his visits to Syracuse, South Florida and Bowling Green. SU's offer after his commitment to Oregon State apparently helped spur on the change of heart. He also had offers from Tulane, Temple, Marshall and others.

Clarke is now the fourth defensive back in the Class of 2016, joining Monquavion BrinsonWill Harper and Scoop Bradshaw. SU is still in the running for four-star safety Eric Burell. In the meantime, Clarke is the 15th member of the 2016 Class for now.
