Syracuse football recently extended a scholarship offer to a four-star, top-30 cornerback within the 2024 recruiting cycle.

Kenny Woseley II said via his Twitter page that he had picked up an offer from the Orange coaching staff. The 5-foot-11 Woseley is a sophomore at the Imhotep Institute Charter High School in Philadelphia.

Although his recruiting process likely has a way to go, it’s encouraging to see the ‘Cuse pledge an offer to Woseley. Competition for his services, however, is going to prove intense as Syracuse football hopes to prevail in his recruitment.

Already, Woseley holds around 20 scholarship offers, according to his Twitter account, media reports and recruiting services. And some of the other schools vying for Woseley are heavyweights in the sport of college football.

Syracuse football has entered the recruiting mix for top-flight CB Kenny Woseley.

Per various sources, other teams that have offered Woseley include Georgia, which won the College Football Playoff national championship earlier this year, Michigan, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Florida, Georgia Tech, Penn State, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Rutgers, Maryland, Ole Miss and Tennessee, among others.

According to his Twitter page, it looks like Woseley has taken trips to several college campuses, including West Virginia, Pitt, Penn State and Rutgers.

Naturally, I’m hopeful that Woseley will eventually take a visit to the Hill, and we’ll of course continue to monitor whether that transpires.

As far as his national rankings in the 2024 class are concerned, at this juncture, has Woseley as three stars and No. 28 at cornerback.

The industry-generated 247Sports Composite and 247Sports rate him as three stars, with the 247Sports recruiting service placing him as the No. 34 cornerback and the No. 8 prospect in Pennsylvania.

Over at On3, Woseley is three stars, No. 250 nationally, No. 24 at cornerback and No. 11 in Pennsylvania.

The On3 Consensus, meanwhile, ranks him as four stars, No. 223 overall, No. 26 at cornerback and No. 11 in Pennsylvania.

I would imagine that Syracuse football is going to have a tough time winning out for Woseley, who is a supreme talent in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

Then again, in recent years, despite its overall struggles, the Orange has produced multiple excellent players coming out of its secondary, so maybe that will appeal to Woseley.
