Syracuse football may have seen two wide receivers depart of late, but now the Orange has added junior-college player Isaiah Jones.
Earlier this week, Syracuse football lost its second wide receiver over the past month or so, however, the Orange has made up some ground with the commitment of junior-college player Isaiah Jones.
That Syracuse football has proven able to add a talented wide receiver to its depth chart this late in the 2020 recruiting cycle is an encouraging development for the ‘Cuse.
As a freshman at El Camino College in Torrance, Calif., Jones suited up in 10 games, catching 19 passes for 238 yards and one touchdown, according to his bio on that team’s Web site. Jones, listed as 6-foot-4, 180 pounds, averaged a solid 12.5 yards per reception.
Prior to his time at El Camino College, Jones attended Cocoa High School in Cocoa, Fla. He revealed his commitment to Syracuse football via Twitter. Jones is expected to have three seasons of eligibility left, as well as a redshirt-year option, should he choose one.
While at Cocoa High School, in his senior stanza Jones “had 62 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns where he was named second team all-state,” according to an article by CuseNation.com’s Mike McAllister.
Syracuse football picks up a pledge from 2020 junior-college WR Isaiah Jones, which helps to offset recent losses at the position.
Should Jones opt to officially compete in the upcoming 2020 term, rather than perhaps take a redshirt, he will provide welcomed depth at the wide-receiver spot.
That’s because Cameron Jordan, a fourth-year junior, has moved on from Syracuse football, we reported a few days ago. On top of that, several weeks back, redshirt freshman Kevin Mital decided to transfer to Laval University in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
Heading into the 2020 campaign, the schedule for which just got unveiled by the Atlantic Coast Conference, the ‘Cuse does return numerous wide receivers from the prior season.
The Orange also has added a handful of freshmen at the position. Regardless, the commitment by Jones will only help to boost the capabilities of Syracuse football at wide receiver in 2020 and beyond.
