Just two days after losing key commit Neil Nunn, Jr. (FL), Syracuse football received some good news as 4-star OLB target Lee Kpogba has decommited from West Virginia.
Kpogba originally received an offer from the Orange in April, which at the time was his tenth offer. At the time of the offer, Kpogba was commited to West Virginia. In the tweet announcing the reopening of his recruitment, Kpogba gave no indication as to what schools he would be considering, although The Dominion Post (WV) speculates that Syracuse is among those schools being considered.
Lee Kpogba, who was a big catch for West Virginia's football recruiting class, is now looking at schools like Tennessee, Florida and Syracuse. https://t.co/Zq2Bq3QRPu— The Dominion Post (@DominionPostWV) October 9, 2018
It is likely that Kpogba will rack up new offers, as he is on the open market for the first time since October 2017, which is when he committed to West Virginia.
In the current 2019 class, Dino Babers and staff have secured a commitment from one linebacker, 3-star OLB Geoff Cantin from Canada. Linebacker has long been a position of need for Syracuse, as the defense struggled in the 44-37 defeat at the hands of Pittsburgh this previous Saturday.
