We expected a quiet National Signing Day for the Syracuse Orange but they ended up adding two more players yesterday.

Gill offers an intriguing combination of size and speed (4.4). He might be an under the radar prospect but he had 55 receptions for 1200 yards last season. There a lot of similarities between Gill and Donovan Brown and these are exactly the type of prospects Syracuse needs to take chances on. Even if they don’t develop into full-time starters on offense, they should provide value on special teams.
