Linebacker Jason Cabinda Chooses Syracuse Over Northeastern Rivals

Hunterdon Central (NJ) Linebacker Jason Cabinda is the latest pledge in Scott Shafer's 2014 class.


Syracuse is all linebackers now.

It was a bit lost in the ACC shuffle, but last night linebacker Jason Cabinda of Hunterdon Central in Flemington, NJ committed to Syracuse, making him the fourth linebacker commit for the Orange and sixth overall so far in this class.

Cabinda, who is listed at 6'2", 215 lbs on Scout, holds offers from Boston College (clearly not a dude, oh well), UConn, Maryland, UMass, Navy, and Temple. Clark Lea was the point man on his recruitment.

Cabinda has not been evaluated by Scout, Rivals, or 247, but ESPN lists him as a 3-star prospect with a '74' grade, and has him as the 96th best linebacker prospect in the country. He also plays running back in high school, and rushed for nearly 1500 yards last season.

He made the commitment official on Twitter and Facebook last night, and the staff was quick to confirm tweet about something completely unrelated go away NCAA.

Also, France is a home game now...

Syracuse is still in on a few big linebacker prospects. The Orange graduate six scholarship players at the position over the next two years, so it doesn't hurt to restock, especially when we have some momentum on the recruiting trail.
