While the majority of the focus is on the 2014 class, the Syracuse coaches are identifying 2015 talent as well while on the recruiting trail. One such prospect that caught their eye is Blanche Ely (FL) defensive back Kevin Williams.
"Yes, Syracuse just started recruiting me," Williams said. "They came to my school. It was Coach McDonald. He talked to my coach. They asked my coach about our safety and they saw me. They went to my coach and said they were interested and that they would come back to see me."
Still early in the process, Williams is learning about the Syracuse program. Despite that, the interest did not come as a surprise to the rising sophomore.
"I don't know much about the program yet," Williams admitted. "I'm going to look into to it. I wasn't shocked (Syracuse showed interest). When I play, I play my heart out because I'm hungry for that first offer. I wasn't shocked by it."
Williams is still looking for his first offer despite interest from several schools. He believes if he keeps working hard, those offers will come.
Williams added that he would like to take a visit up north to check out the Syracuse campus in person.
