SU makes class of 2013 official

First-year Orange head coach Scott Shafer and his staff hit the recruiting trail like the experienced, veteran coaches they are and added 19 student-athletes to football program on Wednesday. Named head coach on January 9, Shafer quickly and efficiently assembled a staff with outstanding football pedigrees. The group spent the last four weeks building the recruiting class that will strengthen the program as it moves to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

"We spent the last few weeks doing a good job of putting together a great class of young men who we think can help us win games here at Syracuse," Shafer said. "I'm really excited about this class because it represents high character men who really love that game of football and treat it with respect. I was proud of the way they operated on the signing date. I think you guys will be excited to meet these kids when they get on campus."

The offensive line added four players, while the receiving corps, defensive line and linebacker unit are three stronger. SU also added a pair of defensive backs, tight ends and quarterbacks.

The class includes four players from Florida, two each from New York, California and Illinois, and one from nine other states, including Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
