After adding Canadian safety Ben LaBrosse on Saturday, the Syracuse Orange football program received another commitment on Sunday:
Steven Mahar is a three-star tight end from Rochester, N.Y. (Aquinas Institute) who is already 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds. Mahar immediately becomes the Orange’s top-ranked player on 247Sports’ composite board. He’s the first New Yorker in this class, and arguably the fist tight end, depending on how you view Justin Barron — a two-way player who could play either tight end or wide receiver on offense. The addition of Mahar would seemingly solve that question, and push him out wide on offense, anyway.
When talking to Syracuse.com’s Stephen Bailey, Mahar said “Syracuse is a rising power in the ACC, and I’ve come to conclusion that SU is the place I want to be for the next four-to-five years of my life.”
‘Sup, “rising power in the ACC” talk...
Syracuse beat out several Power Five schools for Mahar’s services. Pittsburgh, Boston College, Iowa State, Indiana and Rutgers all had offers out as well and were under consideration.
Welcome aboard, Steven! You can check out some of his highlights below.
