National Signing Day, Syracuse Recruiting: Austin Wilson is Orange

Despite some hesitations following the departures of Doug Marrone and Nate Hackett, Austin Wilson signs with Syracuse.

Austin Wilson verballed to Syracuse in May, and despite the loss of offensive coordinator/future best friend Nate Hackett, he honors that commitment today.

Stat Me: Wilson threw for over 2000 yards and 21 touchdowns as a senior this season.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 2*, Rivals - 3*, 247 - 2*, ESPN - 3*

Who's Crying?: Eastern Michigan

Money Quote:

With the opportunity I have there at Syracuse, with not a whole lot of depth there and nobody having started a game, I think I have a good opportunity to come in and compete.

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: According to Rivals, Donnie Henderson, but we know that Nate Hackett was influential as well.

Fun Fact: After Henderson and Hackett left, new QB coach Tim Lester was on the case. According to Wilson, he's met with Lester three times already.
