Syracuse Football Recruiting: Orange Eyeing Judge Culpepper, Brother of Rex

The younger Culpepper is racking up offers and turning heads now that he's out of big brother's shadow.

Is your last name Culpepper and your parents were on Survivor? If so, Syracuse Orange football would like to speak with you.

This season, Rex Culpepper will set upon the task of unseating Eric Dungey, or at the very least working his way up to becoming Dungey's backup. The true freshman was a Scott Shafer recruit but he decided to stick with Dino Babers and the program.

Meanwhile his younger brother Judge Culpepper, is turning heads as a 6-foot-4, 236-pound tight end/defensive lineman at Plant High School. Already with offers from schools such as Tennessee, Kentucky, Purdue, Bowling Green and Cincinnati, Culpepper mentioned Thursday that he has officially been offered by Babers' staff.

Culpepper had been offered previously by Scott Shafer but Babers has been deciding which offers to re-extend and which to rescind.

Not to get too far ahead of ourselves, but Papa Culpepper, former NFL quarerback defensive lineman Brad Culpepper, basically gave Syracuse the edge for Judge's services last year.

"Judge will most likely go where Rex goes," Brad Culpepper said before the trip. "I won't say it's a package deal, but he's already got offers from people watching him at spring practice."

The younger Culpepper visited SU last summer with his brother and, we'd imagine, will be coming back to see a game or two this fall.
