Syracuse football coaches continue to dole out scholarship offers to top-flight prospects in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

One of the latest offers to go out from the ‘Cuse is to 2024 four-star edge Fatim Diggs, he recently revealed on Twitter. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Diggs is a sophomore at Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, N.J.

We noted last month that the Orange coaching staff had offered four-star defensive back Willy Love. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Love is also a sophomore at Woodrow Wilson High School.

By the way, according to the 247Sports Web site, Syracuse football coaches have offered scholarships to at least six other 2024 players who also suit up at the edge position.

Syracuse football has entered the recruitment of four-star Fatim Diggs.

Given that he’s a sophomore and a member of the 2024 class, Diggs’ recruiting process likely has a way to go.

That being said, he does have a handful of other early offers, from teams such as Virginia, Boston College, Penn State, Ole Miss, West Virginia, Temple and Long Island University, according to Diggs’ Twitter account and recruiting services.

From what I can tell, Diggs appears to be one of the best defensive ends nationwide in the 2024 cycle.

The 247Sports recruiting service rates him as four stars, while both On3 and the On3 Consensus place Diggs as three stars.

At this juncture, 247Sports seems to have the highest set of rankings for him, situating Diggs at No. 232 across the country in the 2024 class, as well as the No. 19 edge nationwide and the No. 6 player in New Jersey.

On3, meanwhile, has Diggs as the No. 52 edge and the No. 25 prospect in New Jersey in the 2024 cycle.

The On3 Consensus, which is one of the industry-generated composite-ranking services, ranked Diggs at No. 399 overall when I penned this column, as well as No. 27 at the edge and No. 13 in New Jersey.

I’m looking forward to seeing how both Diggs and Love perform during their upcoming junior seasons at Woodrow Wilson High School. We’ll of course continue to track their respective recruiting processes moving forward.
