It’s been a pretty great few days for the Syracuse football program on the recruiting trail. Starting with a pledge from Andre Cisco, the Orange have added commitments from Tre Allison, Lakiem Williams, and now Carlos Vettorello. In the words of Larry David: pretty, pretty, prettyyyyyyyyy good.

Vettorello, a 6-foot-4, 285 pound offensive lineman from Detroit, becomes the latest addition to an outstanding group up front. Along with Tyrone Sampson, Qadir White, and Willem Froumy, the Orange have put together one of the best (on paper) offensive line hauls in recent program memory.
Vettorello projects to play guard for the Orange, and is rated as a 3-star prospect. He’s the third player to commit to Syracuse following an official visit this past weekend (he was there with Allison and Williams, among others), and is the 18th member of the class of 2018.
The talented OL prospect picked Syracuse over offers from the likes of Boston College, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Oregon State, Indiana, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Iowa State, and Pittsburgh, among others. He was also receiving heavy interest from Oregon (at least, prior to their coaching change).
This is another big addition for Syracuse, as the Orange continue to put together a very strong recruiting class. Obviously, Syracuse would still like to add one or two more skill position players (including unearthing or flipping a quarterback), but the secondary, linebacker, and offensive line groups are shaping up to be pretty terrific.
