Thought it was worth starting a thread here for Drew Singleton. No confirmation of any contact with the SU staff and Drew.

Drew is transferring from Michigan.

Former 4 star LB from New Jersey.

Drew competed against and grew up with Tommy Devito.

Drew follows Syracuse DC Brian Ward on twitter. Also follows Devito and Kevin Johnson Jr.

We need a LB.

Will continue to monitor if any developments.

Intra-League transfers allowed?

New NCAA DI Transfer Rules in Effect - Fastpitch Softball News, College Softball, Club Softball


" Starting today, a student-athlete only needs to provide their university and coach their written “intent” to transfer. After this occurs, the university must enter the student-athlete’s name into a national transfer database within two business days. At this point, the student-athlete may contact and be contacted by whomever. However, inter-conference transferring rules do still apply. So things like sitting out a season of play when transferring within the same conference are still in effect."

Section VI-2. Intra-Conference Transfer Rule.
A student-athlete who transfers directly to an ACC institution from another ACC institution and who was recruited by the institution from which they are transferring, for whom the athletics department interceded in the admissions process, or who received any athletically related financial aid during the academic year immediately prior to the transfer is required to complete one (1) academic year (two full semesters or three full quarters) of residency at the certifying ACC institution before being eligible to compete for or to receive athletically related financial aid from the certifying institution. Such an academic year of residency shall count as one of the student-athlete’s four (4) permissible seasons of competition permitted under NCAA legislation. During such a year of residency, the student-athlete is permitted to practice pursuant to NCAA eligibility rules regarding practice eligibility. A transfer student-athlete admitted after the twelfth day of class may not utilize that semester or quarter for the purpose of establishing residency. Waivers of this ACC rule may be considered by the ACC faculty athletics representatives, acting as a committee of the whole, provided the student-athlete has qualified for an exception or waiver of the NCAA four-year college transfer rule. Further, the waiver request must demonstrate objective evidence that proves the student-athlete’s extraordinary personal hardship necessitates the transfer to another ACC institution.

If I read this correctly, intra-conference transfers are allowed, but the NCAA-mandated year of non-participation also counts as a year of eligibility. So, you don't have to sit two years, but you lose a year of eligibility.

I agree. Recall having a healthy debate on this topic somewhat recently.

Nice to get them in for the final game in the Dome but prospects can always take OVs afterwards.

Singleton redshirted last year and played in 7 games this year on special teams. Was running 3rd on the OLB depth chart. After sitting out he'd have 2 years left. My opinion on taking a transfer is you need to be projecting them as a starter down the road. He is supposed to be 6-2 220 so the size is there.

Didn't we have like 17 transfer out under Marrone?
No idea how many without looking it up, but it was over a couple of years, not all at once.

The attrition did hurt us for awhile, I think 55 scholarship players one year. The difference being the players leaving Syracuse were so bad it didn’t much matter and we were already terrible. This will set LVille back 4/5 years.
