A crazy weekend of commitment continues...

Weren't we just voicing concern about the Syracuse Orange football 2017 Class and whether or not we were getting enough recruits? Well in the span of three days we've added OT Dakota DavisATH Eric ColeyWR Cameron Jordan, and now you can add Michigan RB Allen Stritzinger to the fold.

Stritzinger picked Syracuse over offers from Michigan, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Toledo and Western Michigan, amongst others. Mike Hart was his primary recruiter.

There's also a connection between Allen and Eric Coley. The two attended the same academy in Michigan before Coley moved to NY.

Stritzinger was being considered as a cornerback as well as running back but he's being recruited as the latter to SU. While he was rated three-stars by Scout as a corner, they had previously rated him four-stars as a RB.

The 6-foot-1, 190 pound-speedster rushed for 1,356 yards and 20 touchdowns as a sophomore and led De La Salle to the state championship. He missed most of his junior campaign with injuries, though he did manage 338 rushing yards and four touchdowns in six games.

If he's able to recover from injuries and return to his former abilities, Syracuse might have just snagged a very solid RB for the future.
