It’s going to prove quite a busy summer for Syracuse football as it pertains to the team’s recruiting efforts as well as welcoming high-school prospects to the Hill for visits.

According to his Twitter page, 2023 three-star commit LaNorris Sellers plans to make an official visit to the Orange on June 24, which is exciting to hear.

The 6-foot-2 Sellers, a junior at South Florence High School in Florence, S.C., is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks across the country in his class.

He is a consensus three-star player, according to all of the primary recruiting services. Sellers said he would commit to the ‘Cuse in March, and I think that his pledge to the Orange is a huge foundational piece for the squad in the 2023 cycle.

Syracuse football will welcome QB signee LaNorris Sellers to Central New York next month.

Besides Sellers, there are numerous recruiting targets who anticipate traveling to the ‘Cuse in June. Two such high-school prospects whom we recently noted are 2023 three-star linebacker Zyian Moultrie-Goddard out of Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, N.Y., and 2023 three-star offensive lineman Eric King with the Saint Peter’s Preparatory School in Jersey City, N.J.

Getting back to Sellers, he had previously given a verbal commitment to fellow Atlantic Coast Conference member Virginia. However, at the conclusion of the 2021 college football campaign, Cavaliers head coach Bronco Mendenhall resigned.

Additionally, UVA offensive coordinator Robert Anae and quarterbacks coach Jason Beck left that squad to take on similar roles with Syracuse football.

The Orange coaching staff offered a scholarship to Sellers, who had reopened his recruitment, in mid-January. He then committed to Syracuse football, revealing his choice via Twitter, on March 6.

Throughout his recruiting process, besides the ‘Cuse and Virginia, other offers that Sellers had secured were from Virginia Tech, Memphis, Washington State, Appalachian State and Georgia State.

Both ESPN and On3 rate him as a top-15 quarterback within the 2023 cycle. Virtually all of the main recruiting services place him as a top-10 player in South Carolina.

The two industry-generated recruiting services, the 247Sports Composite and the On3 Consensus, have him nationally ranked in this class.

The 247Sports Composite, at the time of this writing, placed Sellers at No. 642 overall, while the On3 Consensus had him at No. 656 nationwide.

I’m pumped that LaNorris Sellers will be heading to the Hill in a few weeks’ time!
