Cornerback Myles Norwood, a junior-college player who plans to announce his new future home in the coming days, has included Syracuse football in his top four, he announced on Twitter.

Also making the cut for the 6-foot-3, 180-pound Norwood, along with the Orange, are Indiana, Iowa State and Kentucky. He said via a tweet that he plans to reveal his next collegiate destination on June 15.

Norwood most recently has been attending Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa. As a member of the 2021 recruiting cycle, Norwood suited up for Trinity Catholic High School in St. Louis.

According to his Twitter page, Norwood picked up an offer from the ‘Cuse coaching staff on May 27. Throughout his current recruiting process, he has landed other offers from Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas, Vanderbilt and Kentucky, per his bios on the 247Sports Web site and

Syracuse football is one of four finalists for defensive back Myles Norwood.

Two years ago, during his recruitment while in high school, Norwood held a bunch of offers from teams such as Fordham, Lehigh, Holy Cross, Air Force, Eastern Michigan, Army, Navy, Northern Iowa, Youngstown State, Eastern Illinois, Brown and Bucknell.

As we await a final decision from Norwood, whom I imagine will have several years of eligibility remaining, there is a lot of activity related to Orange recruiting efforts in various cycles, particularly the 2023 class.

Matthew Scicchitano, a three-star athlete who suits up on the defensive and offensive lines, as well as at tight end, recently revealed on Twitter his top three of the ‘Cuse, Temple and Coastal Carolina.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound Scicchitano is a rising senior at Mount Carmel Area High School in Mt. Carmel, Pa., and he plans to take an official visit to the Hill on June 24, according to 247Sports.

Naquil Betrand, a 2023 three-star offensive lineman from Northeast High School in Philadelphia, has the Orange in his top 10, along with Texas A&M, Georgia, Kentucky, Auburn, Colorado, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Maryland and Boston College.

The 6-foot-7, 310-pound Betrand verbally committed to Colorado in March but has kept his recruitment open.

Syracuse football is in the top 10 for 2023 four-star wide receiver Tyler Williams, who competes for Lakeland Senior High School in Lakeland, Fla.

The 6-foot-5, 190-pound Williams, when he disclosed his top 10 not too long ago, also included Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Southern California and USF.
