Greenacres (Fla.) Leonard tight end Nick Provo will play college football in the Big East.
Syracuse made the 6-foot-2, 213-pounder an offer after a camp session this summer and he committed.
"They are the first school to try and get me committed," Provo said. "I've liked them every since I went to camp up there at the end of my sophomore year."
Provo added that he enjoyed working with Orange tight ends coach Brian White during camp.
"He's a good coach," Provo said. "Compared to all of the other camps that I went to, Coach White is a little bit different."
A conversation with Syracuse head coach Greg Robinson sealed the deal for Provo.
"I called him up and that's when he offered me," Provo said. "He offered me and he talked about putting together a program and told me that he wanted me to be a part of it."
Provo had 233 yards receiving, averaging 15.5 yards per catch, in 2005, and also is a standout on defense. He was an all-conference selection and received interest from Iowa, Florida International, Florida, South Carolina and others.
Tim Salgado is Provo's Syracuse recruiter of record. He is the eighth verbal commitment for the Orange in the Class of 2007 and first from the state of Florida.
Provo is a two-star rated recruit by Rivals.com.
