With a relatively thin group of quarterbacks, particularly after walk-on Tyler Gilfus was switched to wide receiver this spring, Syracuse has added one more arm to the mix with premium preferred walk-on Anthony “Mo” Hasan. The 6-foot-3 signal caller from Fort Lauderdale is a former teammate of Orange freshmen Kenneth Ruff and McKinley Williams at Dillard High.

It’s interesting to note that what separates Hasan from most walk-on prospects is the fact that he was actually rated as a 3-star prospect by 247Sports.com, and had a few lower level offers from the likes of Lehigh and Howard before deciding to try his luck landing at a bigger program. The second team All-Broward County selection was rated by 247 as the No. 79 pro-style QB in the nation, and also had interest from Rutgers, USC, and San Diego State as a preferred walk-on.

Hasan visited Syracuse earlier this week and came away highly impressed with the school and the program, so his commitment doesn’t come as much of a surprise. He’s an intriguing addition to the roster, and as a “premium” preferred walk-on he’ll receive a partial scholarship this year and be in a good position to earn a full football scholarship heading into next season.

The 6-foot-3, 183 pound QB also runs a verified time of 4.9 in the 40.
