Syracuse football will welcome a bunch of high-school prospects in the 2023 recruiting cycle to the Orange campus for official visits in the month of June.

The latest centers on in-state edge Jalil Smith. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Smith, who attends Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, N.Y., recently said on Twitter that he would take an official visit to the ‘Cuse on June 17.

Smith says on his Twitter page that he is a defensive end/outside linebacker. Media reports say that he is one of the premier defenders in New York state within his class.

According to his Twitter account, the 247Sports Web site and reports, Smith’s other offers include from Rutgers, Temple, Bowling Green and Stony Brook.

He had previously made visits to both Connecticut and Stony Brook. The Orange offered Smith in August of 2021, according to his bio on 247Sports.

Let’s look at other 2023 prospects with plans to visit Syracuse football.

Also on June 17, the ‘Cuse is expected to get an official visit from three-star linebacker Zyian Moultrie-Goddard, who is one of the top high-school players in New York within the 2023 class.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Moultrie-Goddard attends Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, N.Y. In the 2023 cycle, the 247Sports recruiting service rates Moultrie-Goddard as a top-five prospect in New York.

On June 24, Syracuse football 2023 three-star commit LaNorris Sellers will travel to Central New York for an official visit.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Sellers, out of South Florence High School in Florence, S.C., is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks across the country in his class.

Previously committed to Virginia, Sellers reopened his recruitment back up after there were several coaching changes within the Cavaliers program. He committed to the Orange in early March.

Multiple recruiting services rank Sellers as a top-15 dual-threat quarterback nationwide within the 2023 cycle. He’s also a top-700 overall prospect in this class, per several composite-rating services.

Three-star offensive lineman Eric King plans to officially visit the ‘Cuse from June 24 to June 26. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound King goes to the Saint Peter’s Preparatory School in Jersey City, N.J. places King as a top-25 offensive guard around the country within the 2023 cycle, as well as the No. 10 player in New Jersey.

Last but certainly not least, David Clement, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound tight end/defensive end out of the Christian Brother Academy in Albany, N.Y., said on Twitter that he will officially visit the Orange from June 17 to June 19. He gave a verbal commitment to the ‘Cuse in late March.

We’ll continue to track the recruiting processes of these high-school prospects who will soon visit Syracuse football, while also monitoring which other 2023 players might decide to travel to the Hill over the summer.
