Syracuse football is not to wonder why; SU gets pledges from brothers Dye

Recently on Twitter, Syracuse writer Mike McAllister (whom I respect immensely and is my son’s favorite Syracuse sports writer) revealed two very cool commitments to the Syracuse football program.

Twin brothers Travon Dye and Trashon Dye out of New Jersey have verbally committed to attend Syracuse University. As noted in Mike’s article, Travon will likely add depth at the linebacker position, and Trashon is an athlete with a history of playing running back.

Both guys are slated to join Syracuse basketball guard Symir Torrence’s brother, three-star wide receiver Syair Torrence, in the class of 2024.

Mike’s article includes a highlight video, their stats and more information that you can read at his site here, and I recommend you check it out.

You can also see what Charles Kang with The Juice Online (Rivals) wrote on these verbal commitments as well.

Syracuse football has picked up verbal commitments from 2024 players Travon Dye and Trashon Dye.

Now I don’t always comment on recruits because I’m happy with anyone the coaching staff thinks is good enough and accepts it. I also don’t follow it closely at times so my analysis is purely as an average fan. So I recommend if you do like that stuff, to check out the articles linked above.

However, I’m writing today because I love the attitude of these two (plus local athlete Syair as well) who genuinely seem excited to play for the Orange. In fact, their social media and Mike’s article seem to emphasize their desire to not only be “hard-nosed players” but also the desire to get a degree from Syracuse University.

I could see some fun NIL opportunities with twins (Twin Trees maybe?) or the last name Dye (tie-dyed Cuse gear?), but I also like the mentality of making the most of being a Syracuse student. And they genuinely seem like two guys whom fans will want to root for their success because they seem real, gracious and genuine.

Can they play at the next level? Obviously, the Syracuse football coaching staff thinks so, both received all-state honors in New Jersey, and therefore I trust they can.

They respect the legacy of #44 and thus I have more respect for them. What’s a better representation of La Familia than bringing in twin brothers and welcoming them in with open arms?
