Why did Kyle McCord transfer to Syracuse? Ohio State QB explains portal move to Orange (dispatch.com; Al-Khateeb)


Nearly two weeks after initially entering the NCAA's transfer portal, Kyle McCord has revealed where he will spend his final season of eligibility:

The former Ohio State quarterback has committed to play for Syracuse and first-year coach Fran Brown, as was originally reported by ESPN's Pete Thamel and later confirmed by the signal-caller himself:

McCord's likelihood of starting is much higher in Syracuse than it was in Ohio State, even amid reports that Ryan Day and his coaching staff wanted him to return for his senior season after throwing for 3,000-plus yards in 2023. Day's refusal to commit to McCord as the starter moving forward — coupled with the commitment of Air Noland in the 2024 recruiting class — contributed to McCord's decision to transfer.

But why did he settle on Syracuse? Here's a look at McCord's decision to transfer to the ACC school in his final year of eligibility:

Why did Kyle McCord transfer to Syracuse?

As reported by ESPN, McCord's familiarity with Brown and his coaching staff was a major factor in his decision to transfer to play for Orange football. He knows not only Brown, but also Nunzio Campanile and Jeff Nixon, currently the New York Giants' run game coordinator who is expected to be Syracuse's offensive coordinator moving forward.



"I think the experience on the coaching staff is extremely important," McCord told ESPN. "It was a big factor in my decision. Just being at a place where I can be surrounded with good players. They've done some good things on the portal trail, bringing in some guys from Georgia and other places. All of that, when you combine it, makes it an appealing destination."

Moreover, McCord told ESPN he knows other New Jersey-area football players currently on the Orange's roster in Denis Jaquez Jr. and Alijah Clark.

"Just being around a bunch of guys I played football with growing up," McCord told ESPN. "Being around coaches I've known forever. It felt like everything is happening at the right time."

But it was more than Brown's staff and the ability to start that factored in on McCord's decision.

Kyle McCord high school

Kyle McCord attended St. Joseph's Preparatory School in Philadelphia, where he committed to play for the Buckeyes. He won the starting quarterback position as a sophomore and, according to his Ohio State player bio, threw for 2,883 yards and 38 touchdowns while completing 66.5% of his passes that season.

He followed up with 2,399 passing yards and 31 touchdowns as a junior before he sat the final four games of the season, then helped St. Joseph's win its third consecutive 6A state championship as a senior. He was a member of the 2020 Pennsylvania MaxPreps All-State team and set city and league records for career passing yards (6,887) and touchdown passes (88).

McCord was a five-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting class per 247Sports' Composite ratings. He was the No. 28 player nationally, the No. 6 quarterback and the No. 2 player from the state of Pennsylvania.

Where is Kyle McCord from?

McCord is a New Jersey native, having grown up in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, before attending St. Joseph's. His father, Derek McCord, also has ties to football in New York, having played quarterback for Rutgers from 1988-92.

Kyle McCord eligibility

McCord, who has one year remaining of eligibility, also noted that the ability to be an immediate starter was vastly important in his decision. To that end, he also looked at committing to Nebraska, though the Cornhuskers' attempt to flip quarterback Dylan Raiola off the 2024 recruiting class dampened that potential move.

"I have one more chance to go out and really commit myself, and going through the process, I was looking at schools where I'd have a chance of winning right away," McCord told ESPN. "And with the pieces going there, I'll definitely have that option."

What they’re saying about Kyle McCord committing: ‘Best Syracuse QB since McNabb’ (PS; Carlson)

Quarterback Kyle McCord announced that he had verbally committed to Syracuse on Sunday, landing the Orange their most pedigreed quarterback in decades during Fran Brown’s first few weeks on the job.

News that McCord planned to commit to Syracuse was first shared with the Syracuse Sports insider text group late Saturday night.

McCord, a former five-star recruit in the Class of 2021, owns the best high school pedigree of any Syracuse player since five-star quarterback Cecil Howard came to campus out of high school in 2001. Howard never played a game for the Orange.

McCord has already proven he can perform at the Division I level, having thrown for 3,170 yards, 24 touchdowns and 6 interceptions last season for Ohio State. The Buckeyes lost just one game with McCord under center.

McCord will likely be the Orange’s most well-established most quarterback since Donovan McNabb led the Orange.

The only Syracuse quarterback to ever throw for more than 3,000 yards passing in a single season was Ryan Nassib threw for 3,749 yards as a senior in 2012. Entering that year, however, Nassib hadn’t thrown for more than 2,685 yards.

Because the commitment came from a sitting starter at a national powerhouse -- Ohio State coach Ryan Day was non-committal about whether McCord would be the starter next season -- McCord’s decision put a rare level of attention on the SU football program.

OFFICIAL: Syracuse football finds next QB, signs Ohio State transfer Kyle McCord (TNIAAM; Haller & Ostrowski)

Quarterback was going to be an issue entering 2024 for the Syracuse Orange. With Garrett Shrader leaving, none of the internal options inspired much confidence. Fortunately, that problem just got a lot more manageable.

Kyle McCord, starting quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes in 2023, is now heading to 'Cuse.

— Kyle McCord (@kylemccord16) December 17, 2023
Syracuse.com's Brent Axe was the first to report the news, and ESPN's Pete Thamel also reported it today prior to McCord's official post.

Hailing from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, Kyle was a five-star prospect out of St. Joseph’s Prep in Philly. He is currently listed as a top ten quarterback in the portal this season by 247Sports.com. His first two years at Ohio State were spent behind current Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud. Just days after leading the team to a 11-1 record on the year, the only loss being to Michigan in the final game of the season, McCord entered the transfer portal to complete his last season of eligibility outside of Columbus.

McCord had 3,170 passing yards and 24 touchdowns to just six interceptions this year. To put that in comparison, Garrett Shrader passed for 1,686 yards and 13 touchdowns with six picks in the last campaign. The last time the Orange has a signal caller with a stat line like that was Ryan Nassib in 2012, when he went for 3,749 yards, 26 TDs, and 10 interceptions. That was also the only time in program history where a quarterback has thrown for over 3,000 yards, and 26 passing touchdowns is the program's single-season record.

Camden native Fran Brown is next up as Syracuse football coach. Several local recruits have taken notice. (inquirer.com; Carter)

Someone with an entrepreneurial spirit and some investment capital might want to charter a few buses in the tri-state area come next football season.

It would run afoul of copyright laws, but the obvious name of the fleet should be “The Fran Brown Express.”

Brown, the new Syracuse football coach who said his program is “about to shock the country,” seems committed to bringing in local talent to complete the task.

Just days after he was announced as the 31st coach in Syracuse history, the 41-year-old Camden native with a reputation as one of the nation’s top recruiters flipped three talented local commitments toward upstate New York.

More local reinforcements might be on the way, meaning boatloads of families and friends might need weekly transportation when the season begins. The addition of new Syracuse defensive coordinator Elijah Robinson, another Camden native with a sterling reputation as an excellent recruiter, could open even more doors.

For high school athletes, however, the college football recruiting landscape is also chockablock with obstacles — from the transfer portal to coaching staff turnover to the pressure on coaches to win immediately — that have limited their overall opportunities.

“I think [Brown] will do a tremendous job [recruiting], especially in our region and in our area,” Roman Catholic coach Rick Prete said in a phone interview. “He’s not just a local coach. He’s one of the best recruiters in the country. It can be a great opportunity for a lot of the kids in our area, but it could also be even more competitive to get to Syracuse because of his ability to also recruit nationally.”

Familiar faces, new places

According to several local high school coaches, Brown has had great recruiting success, in part, because he’s honest, direct, and relates well to kids who may have grown up amid similar circumstances.

Brown is a former standout quarterback and defensive back at Camden High School and a 2006 graduate of Western Carolina, where he starred at cornerback under assistant coach Matt Rhule, whom Brown later followed as an assistant coach to Temple and Baylor.

https://athlonsports.com/college-fo...nge-sleeper-pick-2024-college-football-season (athlonsports.com; Vitale)

What first-year head coach Fran Brown is accomplishing at Syracuse is not going unnoticed by college football fans.

The former Georgia Bulldogs defensive backs coach has already brought two UGA wide receivers with him via the transfer portal. Known for his skills on the recruiting trail, he's lived up to the hype as the Orange have landed multiple commits since Brown's hiring.

And on Sunday, Brown landed his biggest one yet: Ohio State transfer quarterback Kyle McCord, who will spend his final year of eligibility with Syracuse after going 11-1 as the Buckeyes starter in 2023.

Fans are ecstatic over what Brown's done so far, and he's putting together a solid roster for the 2024 season. Some are calling the Orange a 'sleeper' for next season in the ACC. And remember, all you have to do next year is finish as a top-12 team in America to have a shot at winning it all.

They play a favorable schedule, avoiding Florida State, Clemson and North Carolina. Their hardest games are against NC State and Miami. Can Fran Brown pull it off?

Recruiting mailbag: Syracuse's potential under Fran Brown, Deion's average star rating (theathletic.com; $; Wasserman)

Recruiting never stops. Neither do your questions. So, how about a mailbag?

And if we didn’t get to your question, don’t be discouraged! We will be addressing some on “Stars Matter,” our weekly recruiting podcast that can be found in the “Until Saturday” feed.

Note: Submitted questions have been lightly edited for clarity and length.
...

...
Is there a path to Syracuse once again becoming a destination for recruits in the Northeast? And is there enough talent in the region to make them competitive in the ACC? Fran Brown and company seem to have started well. — Ryan P.

Can you discuss the impact that the hiring of Fran Brown at Syracuse has had on recruiting? His relationship with recruits has already shown through with a few flips of commitments and possibly more on the way. What is the realistic ranking range of his first class? — Zach H.


First off, it’s impossible not to love the hire. You hear Brown speak for 30 seconds and you already know there is more juice and passion in that building than there’s been in a while.

“I’m going to recruit a different athlete,” Brown said at his introductory news conference. “I’m going to recruit depth. I’m going to recruit difference-makers. I am really not afraid of no coach in the country. … We’re going to go head-to-head with whoever. We’re ready to compete. We’re ready to recruit.”

Yes!

You have a coach who is from New Jersey and spent a large chunk of his career in the Northeast before going to Georgia and working under Smart. You have a coach with key relationships at crucial high schools. It’s a match made in heaven.

Brown has already flipped three top-500 players (four total) since taking over, including the top-rated player in the Orange’s class, four-star receiver Emanuel Ross of Red Bank (N.J.) Catholic, who backed off his pledge to Stanford. Syracuse did not sign a top-500 player in the 2023 cycle. The impact is already being felt.

The reality, though, is that Syracuse is one of the toughest jobs in the country when it comes to recruiting. It’s very cold. And it’s not close to areas that produce a lot of Power 5-quality players. New Jersey is sneaky talented, but Syracuse is still three-plus hours away from Bergen County.

Brown is the exact type of coach Syracuse needs to have a fighting chance. He is the type of coach who can look Smart in the eye and say, “Don’t come back up North anymore.” You have to love that kind of enthusiasm.

Zach, you asked for a realistic ranking range for his first class. Here’s what I will say: I guarantee he will sign a top-50 class in his first full cycle — and that hasn’t been done at Syracuse since 2007.

Great hire. Exciting stuff.

Caden Brown, 3-star recruit and son of a former Syrcuse football player, commits to SU (PS; $; Carlson)

Caden Brown, the son of former Syracuse football player Alban Brown, committed to Syracuse on Sunday night.

Brown is a three-star edge rusher who player for Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn. The 247 Sports composite rankings list him as the No. 684 player in the Class of 2024. He is ranked as the No. 46 edge rusher and the No. 4 prospect in New York.

Brown announced his commitment in a video on X, the social media platform previously known as Twitter.



Brown is ranked as the No. 795 prospect in the country by On3Sports. He is one of three verbal commitments that the Orange received on Sunday, joining transfer quarterback Kyle McCord (Ohio State) and transfer linebacker James Heard Jr. (West Virginia).

Brown is the 17th verbal commitment that Syracuse has received in the Class of 2024, according to 247Sports. Verbal commitments are not binding until athletes sign a National Letter of Intent.

His father was a linebacker during his time at Syracuse who was known for his production on the Orange’s special teams units.


Former Georgia receiver Yazeed Haynes transfers to Syracuse, joins Fran Brown (dawgnation.com; Riley)

Former Georgia defensive backs coach Fran Brown is now the head coach at Syracuse. And it seems he is bringing the Georgia wide receiver room with him.

After previously landing a commitment from transfer wide receiver Jackson Meeks, former Georgia wide receiver Yazeed Haynes announced that he would be transferring to Syracuse as well.

Haynes announced the move on social media.

— Yazeed Haynes (@ZeedHaynes) December 17, 2023

Haynes signed as a 4-star recruit in the 2023 signing class. He appeared in three games as a freshman and caught one pass for 20 yards.

Haynes and Meeks may not be the only former Georgia wide receivers to transfer to Syracuse, as Mekhi Mews is visiting Syracuse this weekend for a visit. Unlike Meeks and Haynes, Mews was not on scholarship this past season. He did serve as Georgia’s punt returner and was more productive at wide receiver than either Haynes or Meeks.

Haynes is one of 17 Bulldogs, and 15 who were on scholarship, to enter the transfer portal since it first opened on Dec. 4. To date, six Bulldogs have found new homes. All six will be playing at Power 5 schools next season.

Brown spent the past two seasons as Georgia’s defensive backs coach. He will take over for Dino Babers. The Bulldogs officially hired Donte Williams as Brown’s replacement on Saturday. Williams has spent the past four seasons at USC.

Georgia has not yet landed a player out of the transfer portal but that is not for lack of trying. The Bulldogs have hosted four transfer wide receivers, with Vanderbilt’s London Humphreys emerging as the top target for the Bulldogs at the position.

The Bulldogs do hold commitments from two wide receivers in the 2024 signing class, with Nitro Tuggle and Sacovie White both set to sign and enroll at Georgia this coming week. The Bulldogs have the No. 1 ranked signing class in the country.

Georgia will close out the 2024 season on Dec. 30 when it takes on Florida State. The game is set for a 4 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.


Wide receiver Zeed Haynes becomes second Georgia transfer to commit to Syracuse football (PS; $; Carlson)

Former Georgia wide receiver Zeed Haynes, once ranked as a four-star prospect in the Class of 2023, has verbally committed to play at Syracuse next season.

Haynes caught one pass for 20 yards during his true freshman season at Georgia, where he was recruited by new Syracuse head coach Fran Brown. He is listed at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds. Haynes has four seasons of eligibility remaining after appearing in four games this past season.

Haynes is rated by 247 Sports as a three-star transfer acquisition, the No. 111 transfer available and the No. 25 wide receiver. He arrived at Georgia ranked by the 247 Sports composite as a four-star recruit in the Class of 2023, the No. 199 player, the No. 27 wide receivers and the No. 2 prospect in Pennsylvania.

He was ranked by On3Sports.com as the No. 77 transfer available and the No. 18 wide receiver.

His highest ranking on the major recruiting websites came from Rivals, where Haynes was ranked as the No. 66 transfer available and the No. 12 wide receiver.

A product of North Penn High School (Fort Washington), the addition of Haynes is part of an effort to improve Syracuse’s options at receiver. He is the second wide receiver from Georgia that has said he plans to transfer to Syracuse, joining Jackson Meeks.

Georgia won the previous two national championships and has emerged as one of the country’s most powerful programs, one of the reasons the Orange hired Brown as its head coach.

https://www.si.com/college/syracuse...er-linebacker-james-heard-commits-to-syracuse (SI; McAllister)

Syracuse football had landed yet another high profile transfer after an official visit. James Heard, a linebacker transfer from West Virginia, announced his commitment to the Orange. He has four years of eligibility remaining and is listed at 6-2, 230 pounds.

Heard was a class of 2023 four star (per Rivals) prospect who signed with the Mountaineers out of Camden High in New Jersey where he recorded 18 sacks in just nine games during his senior season. He chose WVU over offers from Boston College, Duke, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Penn State, Rutgers, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia, Virginia Tech and others.

West Virginia thought very highly of Heard and reports were that they did not want him to leave. In fact, during training camp for the 2023 season, Mountaineers’ defensive coordinator Jordan Lesley praised his potential.

“Exactly why you go recruit a guy like that,” Lesley said. “He’s exactly what we thought he was. He’s one of our best natural pass rushers, just has a knack. He’s a lot savvier than you think he would be as early in his career in coverage. I mean, he had a pick today on a tipped ball and really just off reaction. He’s going to be a really, really, really good player for us.”

Syracuse Football Is A Top ACC Team With Kyle McCord (youtube; podcast; Ruffino & Joe Show)

Joe DeLeone and Blake Ruffino react to the news of former Ohio State football QB Kyle McCord transferring to Syracuse football

What’s SU getting in McCord? A veteran at a position of need and prolific passer (analysis) (PS; $; Leiker)

One of the most viral moments of the 2023 college football season was Ohio State coach Ryan Day’s postgame clapback at Lou Holtz following the Buckeyes’ 17-14 win over Notre Dame.

Day was only able to go on that tirade because his first-year starting quarterback Kyle McCord executed a 15-play, 65-yard scoring drive using up 1:25 of the remaining 1:26 game clock.

With the ball in his hand for all but one play of the drive, McCord had five completions, three of which were over 15 yards, the mark for explosive plays.

McCord, who on Sunday committed to transfer to Syracuse football with one year of eligibility remaining, checks off one of the most-needed items on the Orange’s wishlist this December: a starting QB for 2024.

SU needed to get a quarterback in place before the end of the week, when its season will be officially over and any players, particularly offensive ones, who might have been waiting to get through the bowl game to make a decision on whether to stay at Syracuse.

That includes players like Oronde Gadsden II, Syracuse’s star draft-eligible tight end who had suitors calling last offseason to try and lure him into the portal.

Gadsden, who spent the 2023 season on the sideline with a Lisfranc injury, has not yet publicly indicated his plans for the 2024 season. He reposted McCord’s commitment graphic.

The final three games of the regular season made it more apparent than ever the Orange was going to need to portal in a quarterback like McCord, whether to give talent on the bench additional time to develop or because bringing in a quarterback for the final one or two years of his career will become the norm in the transfer portal era.

Football season ends on sour note with 35–31 loss to Syracuse (medium.com; Sullivan)

For a football season full of missteps, shortcomings and glaring question marks, it was fitting that Wake Forest’s season finale, a 35–31 defeat to Syracuse (6–6, 2–6 ACC), included all three.

On Saturday, the Demon Deacons (4–8, 1–7 ACC) lost their fifth-straight game, earned the program’s worst record since 2015 and ended their seven-year postseason streak.

It’s a terrible trifecta, paired with the fact that Wake Forest is only two years removed from an ACC Championship appearance, which would lead many fans to believe the 2023 season was a total failure.

Head Coach Dave Clawson refuses to look at it that way.

“I’m not happy with our record, but these guys showed up every day,” Clawson said. “They prepared hard, they practiced hard, they played hard down to the very, very final play.”

He continued: “We’re not in the “happy-to-be-close” business, and I understand that we’re expected to win football games. We accept that expectation, but I am proud of our players. A lot of times you go through years like this, and you seem to give up. That never happened with this group.”

There were plenty of instances of this never-say-die mentality — like cornerback Jamare Glasker’s goal-line stand after a 15-yard leaping penalty from linebacker Jacob Roberts nearly gifted Syracuse another score before halftime, or quarterback Michael Kern orchestrating four touchdown drives to keep up with the Orange’s offense — but unfortunately, it was not enough.

Down four with 5:44 remaining in the game, Wake Forest forced Syracuse to punt for the first and only time all afternoon. Taylor Morin (7 rec, career-high 140 yds) returned the punt past midfield to set the Wake Forest offense up for the potential game-winning drive.

A five-broken tackle, 13-yard scramble from Kern (17-for-24, 261 yds, 3 TD, INT, 9 rush, 30 yd), two runs up the middle from Justice Ellison (11 rush, 38 yds, TD) and a defensive pass interference from a Syracuse defender put the Demon Deacons well in striking distance within the 10-yard line. Because Wake Forest failed a two-point conversion on the previous score — a beautiful back-corner catch from Wesley Grimes (3 rec, 31 yds, 2 TD) — Clawson and Co. were in four-down territory.

Central NY casino goes Hollywood for new movie featuring ‘Stranger Things’ actor (PS; Herbert)

A Central New York casino will be featured in a new movie featuring Hollywood actors.

“The Wake,” a dark comedy directed by Brian Brightly, shot scenes at the YBR Casino & Sports Book Casino in Chittenango this month, according to Turning Stone Enterprises. The film follows three men in their 40s who spend a weekend living life to the fullest after the sudden death of a best friend.



Scenes include the group playing craps, bowling and golfing at the Topgolf Swing Suite inside the casino. A casting call said filming also took place at a local funeral home, church and pub last week.

The main cast has not been announced — reps would only say “The Wake” includes actors from “Stranger Things” and HBO’s “Succession.” But YBR Casino employees landed roles appearing alongside the Hollywood stars, with some playing themselves.

Joe Cambareri, a table games dealer and craps stick man, plays himself; Timmya Green, a YBR Casino bartender, will appear as a woman playing craps; Mike Haresky, a table games dealer, plays himself; Julieanne Heintz, a pit boss & floor manager, plays herself; Joe Karinoski, a table games dealer, plays himself; and Madie Moore, a table games dealer, will be an extra, appearing as a woman playing craps and a love interest of one of the characters.

“This has been an awesome experience,” producer Brad King said of filming at the Oneida Indian Nation-owned casino. “Everybody here has been incredibly welcoming.”

“Really appreciate the hospitality,” Brightly added. “We’ll be back.”

Brightly is a writer and director whose credits include “Inside Man: Most Wanted” (a sequel to Denzel Washington’s 2006 movie), “Tremors: Shrieker Island,” “Home Run,” “Man Camp” (starring Dean Cain) and the Hong Kong action flick “Fox Hunt.” According to IMDb, he also worked as a story analyst on blockbusters like “Fast & Furious,” “The Bourne Identity,” “Munich” and “Jarhead.”

Flood alerts issued across much of Upstate NY as rain continues to pound (PS; Coin)

Update: The first flash flood warning, the most severe flood alert, has been issued in Central New York, for Cortland County. The weather service expects flash flooding of small creeks and streams there through 9:15 a.m.

Syracuse, N.Y. -- A strong coastal storm is bringing heavy rain and flood alerts to Upstate New York.



Much of Upstate east of the Finger Lakes has seen 1 to 3 inches of rain already, with another inch or two forecast.

A flood watch has been issued for the Southern Tier and most of Upstate east of Syracuse. A watch means flooding is possible but hasn’t happened yet. A more urgent flood advisory has been issued for Central New York, where minor flooding “is occurring or is imminent,” the National Weather Service said. One to 1.5 inches of rain has already fallen, with another inch expected, the weather service said.

That advisory applies to Cortland, Madison, Oneida and Onondaga counties through 8:15 a.m.

Creeks might spill their banks, and standing water on roads could make driving hazardous this morning, the weather service said.

The heavy rainfall should wind down this morning, with showers lingering into tonight. A blast of cold air is expected to come in overnight, generating some lake effect snow. Syracuse could see 2 inches by daybreak Tuesday; several inches are possible in the hills south of Buffalo as that cold air streams across Lake Erie.

A winter weather advisory has already been issued for much Western New York from 9 tonight until 10 a.m. Tuesday.
