For the 6-foot-5 296 pound (per Twitter) Tisdale, Syracuse is his first Division I offer, as mentioned in the tweet. Tisdale does not have a 247sports or Rivals recruiting page.
Per his personal Twitter account, Grier also holds offers from NC State, UNC-Charlotte, South Carolina, UNC, Middle Tennessee, Virginia Tech, UVA, Tennessee, and West Virginia. The 6-foot-2 200 pound junior has not been given a “star” ranking by 247sports, but does own a 4-star ranking from Rivals. Rivals currently ranks Grier as the 31st Wide Receiver prospect in the 2020 cycle.
Brown’s only other offer is from the Kansas Jayhawks, according to his personal Twitter. Brown is not ranked by either Rivals or 247sports.
Fashanu has also been offered by Rutgers, per his personal Twitter. Like Brown, Fashanu is unranked by both Rivals and 247sports.
