Scout.com three-star prospect Max Suter, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound athlete from Central Catholic High in Greensburg, Pa. is a versatile player who picked up offers from Buffalo, Temple, New Hampshire, Delaware and Hofstra before committing to the Orange.
“Syracuse offered me after the Elite Combine in N.J.,” Suter began. “I had a good combine there and I guess they like what they saw in me.”
“Syracuse quickly became my top school. The coaches had everything right to say. The coaching staff was one of the main reasons for my decision. I like all of them.”
Suter will probably wind up playing safety on the next level, but he is versatile enough that the coaches have discussed the possibility that he will wind up on the offensive side of the ball.
“They like me at strong safety a lot, but they have talked to me about playing running back too,” Suter updated. “I feel comfortable on both sides of the ball.”
“At running back I run the ball hard, and on defense I just want to hit people.”
Suter, who runs the forty in 4.47 seconds, will be signing with teammate and close friend Cody Catalina, a person that he has formed a strong bond with over the years.
“Cody and I definitely talked a lot about playing for the same school,” Suter informed. “Ever since we were little kids we dreamed about it, and everything worked out.”
The “Keystone State” standout was very impressed by the campus when he visited earlier this year.
“We went up and participated in a seven on seven competition,” he said. “We won all of our games. I walked around and visited some of the facilities. I loved it. It was one of the nicest campuses that I had been to.”
As a junior, Suter ran for 1,420 yards and 24 touchdowns and registered 81 tackles including 16 for a loss.
He earned first team All-Conference, first team All-WPIAL Class AA, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Fab 22", Tribune-Review "Terrific 25", PA Football News honorable mention All-State honors for his efforts on both sides of the ball.
