Syracuse "offense a dream" for 3-star ATH

Before he even stepped foot on campus, Evan Chadbourn, Altoona (PA) Bishop Guilfoyle, knew that he liked the Syracuse offense. As an athlete in the 2017 class, Syracuse is recruiting him to play as a slot receiver and according to Chadbourn, everything he is hearing from Syracuse intrigues him.

"I love their high powered offense. They said I could be a slot guy for them so it is very intriguing", said Chadbourn before he took the Syracuse visit.

After the visit, everything he thought was confirmed, and then some.

"The visit was great. The coaches and facilities there were fantastic. The coaches were all great guys and I was treated very well. The tradition at Syracuse is also amazing. From a football standpoint, I liked getting to understand the offense better and where I would fit in. Other than that the biggest impression was the coaches' personalities, especially Coach Babers and Coach Lynch."

Even before the visit, Chadbourn told that his interest in Syracuse was very high. It appears that with the trip over, nothing has changed.

"I would say that this visit made my interest high. Their offense is basically a dream for wide receivers and I would have a blast playing in it."

Chadbourn has interest from around thirteen schools and holds 7 offers, but none of them are from a P5 school. With a strong junior season this previous fall, he is hoping that will now translate into progress on the recruiting trail this spring and summer. An offer from Syracuse was in the back of his mind, but really not something he was expecting.

"They were very positive (about an offer) but they have a bunch of offers out now and said that they would be in touch."

Even without an offer, that did not discourage Chadbourn nor did it affect his view of where Syracuse stands with him right now overall.

"Hard to say exactly where they stand because I didn't get offered but it would be a top school for me."
