Canadian offensive lineman Patrick Davis has signed his financial aid agreement with Syracuse and will enroll at SU and join the Orange for practice this spring, SU Athletics announced on Thursday.
Davis is rated three stars by ESPN, two stars by Scout and unrated by Rivals and 247Sports. Davis committed to Syracuse in early August after attending camp in mid-June and taking an unofficial visit shortly after.
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Davis offers versatility, having played guard, center and tackle while at Champlain Regional College in Lennoxville, Quebec. A three-time league all-star, Davis was named the 2016 CEGEP Division I Offensive Line Player of the Year as a senior after helping lead the Cougars to a provincial semifinals appearance.
Davis is the fourth recruit to sign with the Orange this cycle, joining linebacker Nadarius Fagan and two JUCO prospects in tight end Ravian Pierce and linebacker Ryan Guthrie. In addition, Syracuse also snagged graduate transfer defensive back Devin Butler. All five players are expected to participate in practice this spring.
Syracuse has 18 more commits expected to sign their respective National Letters of Intent with SU on Feb. 1. Prized Orange quarterback commit Tommy DeVito recently said every member of Syracuse’s 2017 recruiting class is ‘100 percent in.’
That number, however, can grow, as Syracuse reportedly has room to add as many as six more prospects this recruiting cycle, according to Syracuse.com.
