Good pick up, seems SU is really going all in on next years class which at this point is a good strategy. Won't help us out a ton next spring but the 2022 class is just loaded with talent on both sides.
Syracuse now brings in three four star and one five star recruits at close defense for the ‘22 class. Really impressive. Curious to see who gets playing time at close this year. If DiPietro and Murphy are both gone, that leaves Kennedy as the only guy (I see at least) with no eligibility after next year.
That's great! Was comparing him to Nick Mellen the former syracuse defender. Mellen and Figueras are similar sizes.
Seen Figueiras play a lot. Great comparison. Footwork is very good. Not too many attackman that try to dodge him anymore. If they do he normally will take the ball.In his IL profile, it lists Figuerias as 6'0 170. As a senior Mellen was listed as 5'9 and 187 (I think his height was exaggerated). Figueiras could put on some weight but he is taller than Mellen. Looks like he has similar footwork as the Syracuse great.
