The first of what should be a few commitments going into the long weekend.
Right after we said the Syracuse Orange football program hasn’t had a commitment in a while, they get one. Three-star defensive back Jeremiah Wilson pledged to the Orange on Wednesday afternoon following his campus visit last weekend.
Wilson stands at 5-foot-11 and 173 pounds , and comes from Kissimmee, Fla. and currently attends Osceola High School — a school that should be sort of familiar to Syracuse fans since it’s where former Orange DB Devon Clarke was from as well. The announcement from Wilson came via Instagram Live on Wednesday. He picked SU over offers from Arizona, Iowa State, Washington State, Coastal Carolina, Marshall, ECU and a bunch of others.
Syracuse now has two defensive backs committed in this class, between Wilson and Cornell Perry, who picked the Orange back in February. Both players seem like ideal fits at cornerback, and there could be more adds at that position too, given the team’s five-defensive back scheme at the moment. Wilson is also the fifth commit in this cycle for Syracuse.
Welcome aboard, Jeremiah! Highlights below for those that want to check out some film on him.
