Tight end recruit Batten flips commitment from Kent State to Syracuse
Dade Christian High School (Fla.) tight end Aaron Batten switched his commitment from Kent State to Syracuse, Scout.com reported earlier today.
Batten originally committed to KSU earlier this month, according to Scout, but visited Syracuse last weekend before changing his verbal commitment.
The 6-foot-4 220-pound Batten told Scout he thought SU was “a better opportunity” for him. Batten is a two-star recruit ranked No. 98 in the country at tight end in the class of 2013, according to Scout.
He joins fellow Floridian Tyler Provo at tight end in the recruiting class. Batten’s addition gives SU 19 commitments, according to Scout.
The Orange recently hired offensive coordinator George McDonald, a recruiter vaunted for his ability to get commitments from players in the Miami area.
