The calendar only just turned to August, but Dino Babers and the Syracuse Orange football team have already accumulated an impressive 2017 recruiting class.
Babers and his staff are showing no signs of slowing down, as Stephen Bailey of Syracuse.com reported on Tuesday that two more 2017 recruits are planning to take official visits to campus very soon.
Offensive lineman Tyran Hunt and running back Isaiah Miller are both rated as three-star prospects by various recruiting sites.
Hunt, a two-way player (offensive tackle/defensive end) from Virginia's Southampton High School, stands at an imposing 6-foot-7 and 280 pounds going into his senior season. He's rated three stars by Rivals.com and Scout.com.
He first met the Syracuse coaching staff at a satellite camp at Old Dominion back in June, and has maintained regular contact with them ever since. In an interview with Bailey at the time, Hunt had this to say about his interaction with the SU staff:
"They stay involved. A lot of schools offer you and then you won't hear from them anymore...I really love the energy they give off. I want to get up there and see the campus for myself."
Hunt just took a visit to Maryland over the weekend, has listed Syracuse among his top seven schools. The rest of that list includes a collection of current and former ACC programs: Maryland, Virginia Tech, Virginia, NC State, North Carolina and Wake Forest.
Isaiah Miller is a running back from Florida who's rated three stars by 247Sports.com's composite rankings.
He is an interesting case, however, as he verbally committed to Oregon State back on July 21. Apparently he is not 100-percent, though, because according to Bailey, he is "going to get up on an official visit (to SU) as soon as (he) can."
Miller received official scholarship offers from both Syracuse and Oregon State on Monday.

The Orange currently has 17 players committed to its Class of 2017.
Syracuse opens preseason camp this Saturday, and the season begins on Septemeber 2 in the Carrier Dome when the Orange host Colgate.
