Per this link.
I believe we are taking one MIKE in this class. It looks like Nick Sorrenti and Matt Galambos might be the top 2 candidates. We might end up battling Penn State for both.
Do you know what position the staff is recruiting him for? I think I like him better as a fullback. Looks like a heck of a blocker.
Isn't there a MIKE candidate in this freshman class? . I also thougt that Vigille might be a in the middle. No?
Maybe laxs Matt Walters can help us recruit this kid!
Collingdale (PA) Haverford linebacker Matt Galambos is scheduled to visit Syracuse today. He holds offers from SU, Pitt, RU, and Temple.
Some pics on his Facebook at Cuse! Was just at Pitt too...
Spoke with him and his friend Rich Pappas about their visit yesterday: http://www.nationoforange.com/content/matt-galambos-rich-pappas-talk-syracuse-visit-508/
"I have received 5 offers so far, so they're definitely in the top 5" - lol, awesome kid, thanks
Yeah, he didn't seem to be too "wowed" by Syracuse.
bummer, this kid is a player... Matt Alkire loves him at MIKE.
I didn't draw any conclusions from the interview. He didn't come across wowed or dissapointed. It was pretty vanilla.
That was how he sounded. Seems like he's done a bunch of interviews and sort of knows how they go.
Does he have a good relationship with Matt Walters on our Lax team? They are both Haverford kids! Maybe he'll put in a good word for us...
I highly doubt we offer his buddy, that kid's tiny.
Agreed, but wanted to do my due diligence.
Could be a walk-on candidate...maybe his 'rents have some $$$ to make up whatever difference an academic scholy won't cover.
BTW, BO I want to publically throw out some love to you...your website is doing a great job.
Thanks TexanMark that means a lot. I hope to be able to make a tailgate sometime this season. I appreciate your support and I'm glad to be able to provide SU fans and this forum with some info. This forum has been unbelievably supportive to me and the site. It's the best SU forum out there and I love coming here every day.
FWIW, and I'm not sure if it would be feasible in your situation, but have you ever considered using Skype as an interviewing tool. Nothing like a "face to face" interview.
I haven't but that's a really creative idea! I actually really like it! I'll suggest it to a few recruits and see what they say.
Another option is using the video on Facebook...it is a little "jerky" in picture quality but it is free and all kids have Facebook.
Another great option. Actually the Skype is free also and most new laptops have a built in cameras, but I think either would give BO another dimension to his interviews. I know Zach Allen knows how to use Skype.
Haverford- Isn't Ryan Nassib's uncle/Joe Nassib's dad the coach there?
OK Lets get one of them.
Did not see this article posted on his visit....
link is no good.
He has liked Pitt a lot for a long time. Got an offer from Harvard recently that he is seriously considering taking. RU is also involved. I think we are at best his 4th choice....I do not expect him to pick Syracuse.
If I was a 2 or 3 star player with the grades to grab an offer from Harvard, that'd be tough to pass up. Unless I felt that football was the definite way I was going to make a living, the education and connections a school like Harvard can give you are hard to top. Then again, these are 18 year old kids.
As someone with a Harvard degree to go along with my SU degree, I would submit that the value of Harvard's connections & education are very much over-rated. If I had my eye on a career in NYC, I would put SU's connections above Harvard's.
agree - I think that's why no one has really been following his recruitment or reacted when they found out when he was announcing - kid never seemed to be into SU
Dohn is reporting
Pitt, Yale or Harvard are the final three
