Welcome to college football’s early signing period for the class of 2020! The Syracuse Orange will be adding new recruits from Wednesday to (maybe) Friday. As each player signs, we’ll be posting profiles here on TNIAAM. Next? SU continues its efforts in the DMV area, with Marlowe Wax.
Twitter feed: @MarloweWax
Hometown: Baltimore, Md.
Previous School: Mount St. Joseph
Stats: 6’0”, 225 lbs.
Commitment date: April 14, 2019
Position: Running back
Ratings: Threes all around.
Other Offers: Pitt was the most notable offer other than Syracuse’s. East Carolina, Temple and ECU were also interested.
Dino’s projected nickname: “Wax-On, Wax-Off”
Wax played on both sides of the ball in high school, and collected an impressive 29 tackles for loss as a senior linebacker. For now, at least, he’s slated to be a running back for the Orange though, and there he rushed for over 1,300 yards and 18 scores this fall. He’d also come to campus as the second biggest halfback on the roster by weight, potentially providing some needed power in short yardage situations. Given the number of running backs on the roster right now, he’ll get time to develop, but we could eventually have a quality between-the-tackles runner on our hands.
