The Syracuse Orange had a ton of potential commits on campus this past weekend, and the results of that recruiting camp is already paying dividends.
Over the weekend, wide receiver Anthony Queeley said he’d be joining SU. On Tuesday, offensive tackle Willem Froumy also offered his own commitment to the Orange.
The 6-foot-6, 280 pound tackle hails from New Hampshire (Exeter High School), and already possesses the size for the FBS level as a rising senior. While competition’s not incredibly high up in NH, you can’t deny that size can move people — and will be even more of an asset once Froumy gets to a college weight room.
While he only has one other FBS offer (UMass) and is currently unrated, part of that’s likely from a lack of scouting up until now. Boston College, UConn, Maryland and others exhibited interest in him already, though did not extend an offer. Syracuse only offered over the weekend, following a positive showing at the recruiting camp.
Scout spoke with Froumy about his commitment, and it seemed the city and program sold itself to him pretty easily:
"I made a friend at the camp (Anthony Queeley) already telling me to 'join the family.' Not to mention the Twitter army that's had my phone buzzing for the past two hours. When you commit somewhere, you pick a new family for the next four to five years of your life. All of Syracuse is one big family."
Froumy is the 10th commitment for the 2018 Orange recruiting class, and second offensive lineman (along with 4-star center Tyrone Sampson). It’s early but Syracuse’s class is currently ranked ahead of Alabama’s -- as are a lot of other classes.
We’ll see if the program can add any more of this weekend’s campers to the roster as well. They’re high on two quarterbacks (Chance Amie, Will Levis), along with several others that attended.
Congrats to Willem, and check out his film below.
