I heard they found a loop hole in the rules and he was going directly from HS to the Buffalo Bills. ;)

Even if we lose him to one of the big boys - Michigan has to be in the running, too - it'll be nice for SU to be in the conversation right up to the end. And maybe McDonald can work his magic, you never know.

I went to FM and watched his games...

I really really do not see what the huge deal is other than his last name. Sure he's talented and deserves to play college ball, but Alabama? Michigan? I don't know boys.

He has the size, athleticism, and blood lines. He is being talked about as a potential 4 or 5 star recruit. No offense, but if he has early offer from Nick Saban, Bill O'Brein, and Brady Hoke i tend to side with those guys.

Wonder if he is a Cuse or Michigan fan? Even though that doesn't matter, think M will be the team to beat for Wheatly.

Yes they clearly know better than me...

But I don't know, maybe he'll make it more blatantly obvious that he's a star recruit his junior and senior seasons. I think he's a sophomore now...could be wrong.

He was a sophomore this year, and yes I would tend to agree with your sentiments that he wasn't blowing anyone away. That being said he seemed to have a body that wasn't close to fully developed and in 2 years could be a serious player.

@MinkNate: Tyrone Wheatley Jr., one of Syracuse's most sought after recruits for 2015, is transferring to Buffalo-area Canisius HS, source tells me.

There is.

My guess is that the Wheatley and Schafer families are pretty close due to their SU and FM connections. Another guess is that Ty trusts HCSS enough to allow TJ to choose SU if he so desires.

Even if both of my guesses are correct, I still think it's an uphill battle considering that Alabama and Michigan (among others) have offered.

Uphill battle to be sure, but we are in this due to the reasons you surmise and a few others (info from someone who knows Tyrone Jr.
