Syracuse football recruiting: WR Jaylan Hornsby commits to the Orange

The New Jersey native flipped from Texas A&M

NCAA Football: Western Michigan at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

After a major recruiting weekend, new Syracuse Orange head coach Fran Brown secured his first commitment on Sunday night.

New Jersey wide receiver Jaylan Hornsby flipped his commitment from the Texas A&M Aggies to Syracuse.

Hornsby is listed anywhere from 6’1” to 6’3” and close to 200 pounds so he’s a big, physical receiver who ranked in the top 10 in New Jersey and top 100 wide receivers nationally. Before committing to Texas A&M, Hornsby took visits to Penn State and West Virginia and had offers from a host of schools including Georgia, Michigan and Oregon.

Fran Brown seemed to take a different approach to this weekend as recruits attended a hibachi dinner inside the Dome where one of the many Ferraris you see on 690 was positioned for photo opportunities.

It’s clear that the staff isn’t afraid to chase talent, no matter who else is offering so the next two weeks could be very interesting for the 2024 class.
