If you're a wide receiver, please inform the Syracuse Orange football staff. They would probably like to speak with you. Much like they did with 2017 WR Cameron Jordan, who just gave his verbal commitment to play for SU next year.
BREAKING: 2017 NY WR Cameron Jordan @Cam_J1 has committed to Syracuse, he tells Scout: https://t.co/NnWVwDDK5C pic.twitter.com/pkZ4pzIaPz— CuseNation.com (@SyracuseOnScout) June 26, 2016
Jordan plays for Half Hollow Hills West (say that three times fast) in Dix Hills, NY and he was one of the visitors to campus this weekend. The 6-foot-4 receiver is a speedster, running the 40-yard-dash in the 4.43-4.51 range, and seems like a prime fit as an outside wideout in Dino Babers's offense.
"I (committed) to Syracuse because of the great coaching staff they have," Jordan told CuseNation.com. "And the style of offense they run."
Syracuse's sixth commitment in nine days had offers from Boston College, Wake Forest, Buffalo, UConn, Stony Brook and Temple as well. So basically he was a Northeastern Football Recruit(tm). He doesn't have much in the way of stars but given his offers and commitment, he's due to magically get some in the coming days.
In his junior year he racked up 854 yards and 14 touchdowns on just 29 receptions. That's a helluva ratio.
Jordan makes it four wide receivers in the Class of 2017 as he joins Joshua Palmer, Sharod Johnson and Nykeim Johnson. One gets the sense you can never have enough weapons at the wideout spots in this offense so the more the merrier.
