Two high-school quarterbacks who have connections to Syracuse football are scoring stellar 2022 seasons to date.

Both LaNorris Sellers, a 2023 three-star dual-threat quarterback, and 2024 dual-threat quarterback Jacob Zamot have played pivotal roles in leading their respective high schools into the post-season.

The 6-foot-2 Sellers, from South Carolina, verbally committed to the Orange in early March. The 6-foot-1 Zamot, out of New Jersey, is receiving interest from the ‘Cuse and recently said that Syracuse football was in his top three, according to media reports.

Each of these young men has put up some really tremendous numbers so far in the 2022 stanza. Sellers is a senior at South Florence High School in Florence, S.C., and his younger brother, 2025 wide receiver Jayden Sellers, also picked up an Orange offer in late June.

Zamot, who visited the ‘Cuse campus in late September, is a junior at Millville High School in Millville, N.J.

A Syracuse football 2023 QB commit and an Orange 2024 QB recruit are playing at a high level.

Per his Twitter page, Sellers recently claimed a player of the year honor in South Carolina. He has amassed a combined 2,840 yards through the air and on the ground, and Sellers has produced a total of 40 passing/rushing touchdowns.

South Florence, one of the top teams in South Carolina, is 11-0. Per social media, South Florence is a No. 2 seed in the South Carolina High School League Class AAAA state championships and was scheduled to play No. 10 seed Bluffton High School in Bluffton, S.C., on Wednesday, Nov. 9, beginning at 7:30 pm in a second-round battle.

Rated a top-20 quarterback in the 2023 cycle by several recruiting services, Sellers has received an invitation to compete in the 2022 Shrine Bowl, which will take place on December 17 in Spartanburg, S.C.

While committed to Syracuse football, Sellers did land scholarship offers last month from both Coastal Carolina and South Carolina. In a recent article, national analyst Adam Friedman wrote that the Gamecocks are pursuing Sellers, “and the talk of a potential visit to South Carolina continues to circulate.”

Switching over to Zamot, his recruiting process likely has a way to go, given that he’s a member of the 2024 class. Per recruiting services and reports, besides the Orange, Zamot holds interest from teams such as Penn State, Rutgers, UCF, UConn, UMass, Temple, Stony Brook, Villanova and Towson.

Millville, presently sporting an 8-2 record, will play this Friday, Nov. 11, beginning at 6 pm against Hammonton High School in Hammonton, N.J., for the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association Group 4 South title, per social media posts.

According to his bio on the MaxPreps Web site, Zamot has thrown for 2,366 yards and 22 touchdowns against just three interceptions. He said on Twitter a few days ago that he has been selected to the All-Conference first team.
