The Syracuse Orange completed most of their 2024 recruiting prior to yesterday’s Welcome National Signing Day but we still had two more recruits officially complete their paperwork, so let’s get to meet them.
Next up is
Name: Malachi James
Hometown: Willingboro, NJ
Previous School: Burlington City
Stats: 5’11 190 pounds
Position: Wide receiver
Ratings: Unrated by any
Other Offers: James had offers from Army, Air Force, and Temple.
Twitter/Instagram feed: @Ibnmcdaniels1
Player Breakdown: When you play indoors you should be on the lookout for players with speed and James has it. As a sophomore he clocked a time of 10.54 in the 100m dash and to put that into context, Syracuse track’s top sprinter Trei Thorogood has a PR of 10.46 in the event. James is listed as both a wide receiver/athlete, but he projects as someone you want to have the ball in space either on offense or returning kicks.
