Brooklyn (N.Y.) South Shore linebacker Parker Cantey ended his recruitment over the holiday break by deciding to stay in-state and go to Syracuse. What made the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder pick the Orange over offers from Iowa, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Virginia, Wisconsin and others?
"He told me that it was between Rutgers and Syracuse and he just felt more comfortable up at Syracuse," said South Shore head coach Tommy Salvato. "He felt that was where he fit in best and just decided it's where he wanted to go. He's really excited about the decision and happy that the process is over as he can now look forward to playing at Syracuse."
We asked Salvato what type of player they'll be getting?
"I can say that they are getting a big-time, explosive guy that has a motor that never stops," he said. "He's a kid that makes a lot of plays on defense. I know for a fact they have said they plan to use him as an outside linebacker"
Salvato confirmed that the three-star prospect is done with his recruiting and is a definite solid commitment for Syracuse.
