SYRACUSE ORANGE NEWS
Dylan Donahue, Adrian Autry and Taylor Gait. Now add Eric Coley to the list of SU athletes playing under their fathers on the Hill. The Fayetteville-Manlius product announced his commitment on Twitter yesterday, becoming the fifth recruit in the Class of 2017. One of the men Coley will play under is defensive end coach Vinson Reynolds or, as Coley calls him, “dad.” The Orange...
It took a little bit longer than they (or anyone else) expected, but a pair of former Syracuse guards heard their names called during Thursday’s NBA Draft. Malachi Richardson The Hornets scooped up Richardson at No. 22, but after a draft-day trade, the pick belonged to Sacramento. It’s easy to say that the 20-year-old’s career is now over before it started, because the Kings...
In the one recruitment in which Syracuse always seemed to have a leg up since the recruit’s dad is on the staff, 3-star athlete Eric Coley made his verbal commitment to the Orange this morning. Coley is a 6-foot, 175 pound player whose father is defensive line coach Vince Reynolds. I wanna give thanks to […]
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) Michael Gbinije has already enjoyed his share of excitement in 2016. He played in the Final Four for Syracuse, and now he's been drafted by the Detroit Pistons. Later this summer, he's hoping to add the Olympics to that list of memorable experiences. ''Definitely looking forward to it,'' said Gbinije, who last year helped the Nigerian national team qualify...

Thursday night may not have worked out exactly as Malachi Richardson had hoped. There is no doubt he was hoping to be a lottery pick, and was expecting at the worst to be taken by the Memphis Grizzlies with the 17th pick. He fell to the Sacramento Kings at 22, but the fact that he, and former teammate Michael Gbinije were both drafted, enhances Syracuse’s NBA clout. Thursday night...
The recruiting momentum for the class of 2017 continued today as offensive lineman Dakota Davis reportedly committed to Syracuse. The Glenelg, Maryland native could play anywhere along the line, but at 6-foot-5, 312 pounds he might project best to offensive guard at the college level. Glenelg (MD) High OT Dakota Davis has committed to Syracuse, […]
You may or may not have heard that the NBA Draft is tonight. Syracuse is expected to have a pair of players picked, though that number could skyrocket if a run on the Cooney brothers begins somewhere in round two. The Orange have had plenty of players picked over the years, so I figured…why not […]
Last week, Orange Fizz’s Nathan Dickinson talked to Boeheim’s Army general manager and founder Kevin Belbey. Boeheim’s Army, a team of former Syracuse basketball players, will be playing in “The Basketball Tournament” (TBT) for the second year this summer. TBT is a 64-team single elimination tournament, where the last team standing takes home $2,000,000. Boeheim’s Army...
When the floor cleared and Michael Gbinije slinked out of Reliant Stadium, he couldn't bear to look at a basketball. His Syracuse Orangemen's run had been a thing of dreams and now it was over, ending in a 83-66 loss to North Carolina in the Final Four. Syracuse shouldn't have even been there, not really, after losing 13 games in the regular season and losing in the first round of...
It’s been a good week for Syracuse football. In the past five days the Orange has locked in four commits beginning with 2017 linebacker Tyrell Richards on Saturday. A day later, former Colorado defensive end De’Jon Wilson tweeted he’d be joining the Orange as a graduate transfer this season. Then on Tuesday, Washington D.C. slot receiver Nykeim Johnson pledged to SU. That wasn’t...

Well, that didn’t take long. Syracuse offered speedy slot receiver Nykeim Johnson shortly after he put in a standout performance at camp on Sunday, and now roughly 48 hours after that head-turning effort, the Washington DC pass catcher has committed to the Orange. Johnson is rated as a 3-star prospect. https://t.co/xvhtwWdQh8 pic.twitter.com/ey0UbXabUK — Nykeim A. […]
One thing that’s become abundantly clear with Dino Babers and his staff is that the hashtag #OrangeIsTheNewFast doesn’t just refer to the uptempo offense they’re installing, but in the speed of the players they’re recruiting. Today, the Orange offered another player who exemplifies this need for speed: Nykeim Johnson. Johnson is a slot receiver from […]
After a two-month drought, the Orange reeled in the fourth member of its 2017 recruiting class Saturday. Canadian linebacker Tyrell Richards pledged to Syracuse in a tweet after just over a week of communicating with the Syracuse coaching staff. The linebacker impressed at a June 7thsatellite camp at The Hun School in New Jersey. He followed that performance with another noteworthy...
The Syracuse Orange were set to add a big FCS transfer in the former of Delaware State defensive end Gabe Sherrod this year. However, it was announced on Saturday that the team was going in a different direction. That news seemed to shock the graduate transfer. Sherrod did an interview with Syracuse.com’s Stephen Bailey after the news broke and he revealed that the news came to...
The summer of Dino Babers continues to bring new faces to the Hill. The Orange added another player to its roster in the form of graduate transfer De’Jon Wilson.

I’m blessed & honored to be apart of a prestigious program like Syracuse, I want to thank...
Well, just a day after I wrote about transfers being added to the Syracuse football roster, another graduate transfer has been added to the mix: former Colorado defensive end De’Jon Wilson, a Washington DC native who announced on Twitter tonight that he’ll be continuing his football career with the Orange. I'm blessed & honored to be apart […]
When Syracuse tabbed Dino Babers as its new head football coach, Eric Dungey may have been the happiest man in Central New York. Running the new head honcho’s fast-paced, quick-hitting system, the quarterback appears to have a golden opportunity to rack up huge numbers in his sophomore campaign. After working under Scott Shafer and Tim Lester, whose offense was heavily predicated...
Syracuse is headed toward a huge recruiting class in 2017, first in terms of sheer numbers and, as Orange fans hope, in terms of overall talent. With around 5-to-7 scholarships expected to be open, the Orange have a little room to play around with finding the best players to fill their needs. One such player […]
Amonyae Watson learned that Syracuse offered him a scholarship Wednesday morning. “Coach Hart told me to call him and he told me about the offer that morning,” Watson told the Fizz via a direct message. SU is the ninth offer for the Virginia native, but Syracuse is high on his list. “I have serious interest in SU,” Watson said. “I watch them play all the time and they have...

After losing his top three offensive options and nearly 64 percent of its scoring from last season, Jim Boeheim is searching for guys who can put the biscuit in the basket. In clutch situations, in whose hands will the legend entrust the rock? The easy answer should have been Malachi Richardson, but let’s not talk about that right now. With last year’s Big Three gone, Syracuse...
Syracuse fans experienced heartbreak after Malachi Richardson’s premature departure to this year’s NBA Draft. ESPN ranked the 6’6 freshman as a top 25 player in college basketball heading into next season, which left the Orange faithful thinking about what could have been had Richardson stayed in Central New York for at least another year. All this begs the question, which...
