Syracuse football recruiting: Track the class of 2018

Isabelle Marmur | Contributing Photographer

On Feb. 1, 2017, Babers welcomed 24 new members in his first recruiting class. Now, he's working on building his second.

Even with National Signing Day still months away, it’s not too early to take a look at head coach Dino Babers’ 2018 class. Included are each of the players’ star rankings, notable offers and commitment dates according to 247Sports.com’s composite rankings and Scout.com. Syracuse’s Class of 2018 kicked off a week after National Signing Day, when tight end Gabe Horan committed. On April 18, Babers landed his first four-star recruit in the class: center Tyrone Sampson Jr. In September, Babers will enter his second season at SU.
