One of the best prospects in New York within his recruiting cycle plans to take an official visit to Syracuse football next month, he said on social media.

Three-star linebacker Zyian Moultrie-Goddard revealed on Twitter that he plans to travel to the Hill for an official visit on June 17. He said in that tweet that his trip to Central New York in his first official visit to a college campus.

Obviously, it’s an encouraging sign that Orange coaches have scored a visit from the 6-foot-2, 240-pound Moultrie-Goddard, who is a member of the 2023 class and attends Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, N.Y.

Not too long ago, we noted in a separate piece that 2023 three-star offensive lineman Eric King is scheduled to officially visit the ‘Cuse from June 24 to June 26, he recently said via Twitter.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound King goes to Saint Peter’s Preparatory School in Jersey City, N.J., and rates him as one of the best offensive guards across the country in his recruiting cycle.

Syracuse football appears to be in a good position with three-star linebacker Zyian Moultrie-Goddard.

Moultrie-Goddard’s official visit to the Hill in mid-June won’t be his first occasion on the ‘Cuse campus. Per a recent article from SyracuseOnSI publisher Mike McAllister, Moultrie-Goddard was on the Orange campus for the Syracuse football junior day in early March, as well as the ‘Cuse spring game at the beginning of April.

I haven’t seen any predictions from analysts or other recruiting insiders as to a potential collegiate destination for Moultrie-Goddard, but him taking an official visit to the Orange is a great sign for the team’s chances.

What’s more, under his bio on the On3 Web site, that recruiting service’s “recruiting prediction machine” was giving a lot of buzz to Syracuse football at the time that I penned this column.

Besides the ‘Cuse, Moultrie-Goddard’s other offers include from Arizona State, Tennessee, West Virginia, Army, UConn and UMass, according to a review of various recruiting Web sites.

These recruiting services also suggest that Moultrie-Goddard has garnered interest from squads such as Penn State and Rutgers.

While he isn’t nationally ranked by all of the primary recruiting services, there’s no question that Moultrie-Goddard is an extremely talented high-school linebacker.

The 247Sports recruiting service rates him as three stars, the No. 107 linebacker and the No. 4 player in New York state within his recruiting class.

We’ll certainly continue to track Moultrie-Goddard’s recruiting process moving forward. This is just my own personal opinion, but I feel like Syracuse football could be considered a possible favorite for him at this juncture.
