Syracuse football has extended a scholarship offer to a talented four-star athlete in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

Per his Twitter page, Josiah Brown has picked up an offer from the Orange coaching staff. The 6-foot Brown also took a visit to the Hill on Thursday, April 21.

A sophomore at Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, N.Y., Brown is an elite talent in his class. According to his Twitter account and recruiting services, his other offers include from Notre Dame, Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, Pittsburgh and West Virginia.

I imagine that many other top-flight programs in college football will also be offering Brown in the near future. He has made recent trips to both Penn State and Rutgers as well.

Syracuse football has entered the recruitment of four-star athlete Josiah Brown.

According to various recruiting Web sites, it appears that Brown suits up at both defensive back and wide receiver. He also runs track, per his bio on the 247Sports Web site.

The Orange doesn’t yet have a commitment in the 2024 cycle, and prospects in this class likely have a way to go in their recruiting processes. But it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Brown evolves into a top target for the ‘Cuse coaching staff in the 2024 cycle.

Virtually all of the primary recruiting services rate him as a four-star player in this class, save for, which presently has Brown as three stars.

The 247Sports recruiting service places him at No. 131 nationally, No. 21 at the athlete position, and No. 1 in New York state.

Over at On3, Brown is No. 107 nationwide, No. 7 at athlete and No. 2 in New York.

The industry-generated On3 Consensus, meanwhile, rates him at No. 105 overall, No. 7 at athlete and No. 1 in the Empire State within the 2024 recruiting cycle.

I’m excited that Syracuse football coaches have offered Brown. The Orange’s competition to prevail for him is only going to intensify, but I credit the ‘Cuse for making a run at Brown, who is a special talent in the 2024 class.
