It will be interesting to see where Wykoff ends up playing. I would like for SU to bring in a defensemen that would let Kennedy move back to LSM, but given the talent out there it doesn't seem like that player exists. Best fit would be Rapine, but again he has a lot of question marks. Syracuse has a lot of options here, but no sure things and the number of really good attackmen they will face is pretty daunting. I can't see Wykoff replacing Kennedy at this point, I think he's most likely a LSM or secondary defender (still starting, but unsure where that leaves Murphy/DiPietro).We got a very capable transfer at the only position where we truly needed it. I have no problem with that being the only guy we bring in if our attempts are truly over. Still pretty much the only guys I am bummed we couldn't land are Sowers, Morill, and maybe Griffin Brown. Everyone else who has been in the portal just doesn't strike me as a guaranteed game changer given the guys we already have.
I also wouldn't mind some more offense, but like Jeremey points out its hard to recruit to the second line midfield. The only thing that might work in SU's favor is that a lot of other teams won't have many openings either. Sundown would be an exciting addition, but, given the names available, I wouldn't risk keeping Hiltz off the field for anyone, as it will already be hard enough given the fact SU is returning all their starters.
