Quarterback Jones will not sign with Syracuse, has no offer from Orange
Miami quarterback Akeem Jones will not be joining the Orange despite reports he would be signing his Letter of Intent with Syracuse.
The Post-Standard reported Thursday that Syracuse offered a scholarship to Jones, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback from Miami Carol City High School, and that he would to sign his Letter of Intent as soon as his mother arrived in Florida. Jones did take an official visit to SU.
But on Friday, Scout.com and the Post-Standard reported Jones never had an offer from the Orange’s coaching staff, and SU never sent him a Letter of Intent for him to sign.
The signings of quarterback Mitch Kimble and Austin Wilson meant that Jones no longer fit into Syracuse’s plans.
There was an apparent miscommunication that led to the confusion surrounding Jones’ status with the Orange. Scout.com also reported Friday that Syracuse’s recruiting class will remain at 19 signees.
