Syracuse Football Recruiting: JUCO DE Brandon Berry visiting

He has offers from SU, Minnesota, CSU, Toledo, and Charlotte.

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange need immediate help in a lot of areas but the defensive line is certainly one area that could use a boost more than most. Perhaps that boost could come in the form of junior college defensive end Brandon Berry, who told Syracuse.com he’s visiting SU in late January.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder originally from Georgia played last year for Highland Community College in Kansas where he collected 48 tackles, 6.5 for loss, 11.5 sacks, and 12 quarterback hurries. Unrated by the recruiting services, he holds offers from Syracuse, Minnesota, Colorado State, Toledo, and Charlotte.

He also plans on visiting Toledo on December 9 and Colorado State on January 20. The CSU visit will be his second.

Given that he’s only played one season, we can assume he’s got three more years of eligibility ahead of him.

D-line coach Vinson Reynolds is Berry's main recruiter but Dino Babers and DC Brian Ward are also involved. SU already has two DEs in the Class of 2017 (Zach Morton and Jonathan Kingsley) but you can never have too many, right?
