George checks in on SU
Right as the summer was about to get underway the Orange received a commitment from defensive back Jaston George. When George picked the Orange nobody thought Syracuse would be off to the season that they are having. Well maybe not everybody is shocked.
"I did expect this kind of season. That is why I picked Syracuse I believed in the coaches and what they were telling me. I kind of had a good feeling that they would be the sleeper team," George said. "I am very happy with the way the Syracuse season has turned out. They are doing great."
George, 5-foot-10, 160 pounds sees the Orange play a lot on TV and he likes what he sees from the players and his position. For him those items are important when he looks in on his future program.
"When I watch a game I am just looking to see how the players respond to the coaches, how the players respond to adversity with what happens on the field, and at my position. I also look out to see what kind of schemes they are running."
Most f the time the Virginia product watches Syracuse on TV, but he has already made it up to the campus to see the Orange play in person.
"I went up there when they played Pittsburgh. I loved it every part from hanging with the players to the coaches, and the game day atmosphere it was all perfect."
The in season easily topped the spring football visit for George.
"I did like it more than my other visits because during the spring I did not really get to see everything and when I was there this time I saw everything full speed."
On that visit as well as back home George has also been playing recruiter. He has played a part in one commitment, but he is hoping he can factor into some others.
"I am always talking with Raysean and there were a couple guys up there on my visit that I am still keeping in contact with, Greg Brown and Rob Trudo."
With everything that he saw from Syracuse from spring practice to the game day experience the two star prospect is ready to get on the campus and start working.
"I think I would fit in great. They run a lot of corner blitzes and that is something I love to do. At the same time they run a lot of man-to-man and I like to play that as well."
This senior season has also been just as good for George.
"The season is going real good for my team. My season is going good to. I have three interceptions right now."
Even though he will be starting to focus on the playoffs and the end of his season he hops Syracuse continues their winning ways.
"I hope they finish the season strong I already know that they have left their mark letting people know that they are back. When Syracuse is on the schedule now it is not going to be a cake walk."
