The 2018 recruiting cycle is well underway for the Syracuse football staff, and a big potential domino will reportedly be visiting campus next week. That’s quarterback Chance Amie, a 6-foot-4 dual threat from Tyler, Texas.

Amie threw for more than 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns and rushed for another 1,200 yards and 17 scores on the ground last season in East Texas, and has been emerging as one of the top quarterback prospects in his region. In fact, Amie is ranked by as the No. 10 dual threat QB in the nation, and the No. 287 prospect overall in the 2018 ESPN 300. Scout, meanwhile, ranks him as the No. 7 quarterback prospect in the state of Texas.

It’s easy to see why coaches are hot after the athletic QB, as he’s got terrific size, mobility, and strength. He can make plays with his feet, both on designed runs and to keep passing plays alive, and can bomb the ball downfield with plenty of strength and zip. He recently participated in The Opening when it was in Dallas, and while he doesn’t seem to have run the 40, he posted a 32.6 inch vertical and had a time of 4.29 seconds in the shuttle.

So far, Amie has earned offers from the likes of Houston, Rutgers, Virginia, Bowling Green, and Iowa State, in addition to Syracuse, and plenty more are sure to come. Syracuse wants to add even more quarterback depth in this year’s class, and Amie is near the top of the staff’s wishlist at the position.
