Love Gained With 'Cuse
"I talk to Syracuse a lot and Coach (Doug) Marrone was just at the house on Monday," Ameen-Moore stated. "He was here for dinner and we didn't even talk too much about Syracuse to be honest, we just sat and talked about football and family basically. He was telling us so many stories, so it was pretty crazy. My mom and dad like Coach Marrone a lot and they like all of the coaches to be honest with you. The in-home visit went real well."
"What stands out to me about Syracuse is the job Coach Marrone has done with the program in terms of turning them around from a two-win program into a bowl team this year," Ameen-Moore added. "I also really like that they have a lot of ex-NFL coaches there as well and that I have a former teammate up there in Jonny Miller."
Ameen-Moore's official visit to Syracuse was a long time ago and we asked him if that's affected his level of excitement about the program.
"I like every school about the same right now and there hasn't been any love lost since I was out for my official visit at Syracuse. In fact, there has only been love gained because of all the communication I've had with them. They like to have two running backs and they want me to take Delone Carter's position over when he's gone. I'm looking at Utah and Colorado State as well right now, but like I said, they're all even."
We asked him about learning under a former NFL running back in Tyrone Wheatley.
"Coach Wheatley and I talk a lot and we're so close and that's something that's big to me," Ameen-Moore explained. "I like talking to the dude a lot. There's so much I could learn from him at the next level and it's the same thing with Coach Marrone having been at the NFL level as well because like I said, he's got stories for days and has a ton of experience."
As a senior, Ameen-Moore rushed for 1700 yards.
