I hate to sound like a hipster, but let’s be honest here: we Syracuse fans knew that Tommy DeVito was really good at football before it was cool. But as the Don Bosco gunslinger gets more exposure, his profile continues to get even higher. Today, released their revised rankings for the class of 2017, with Tommy coming in at #241 overall in the nation.

The 6-foot-2 quarterback, who committed to Syracuse back in April and has subsequently turned away “bigger” programs who have started sniffing around, is also rated now rated by 247 as the seventh best pro-style QB in his class. He’s considered a 4-star recruit by the website; it’s the second site this spring to bump him to 4-stars, joining ESPN.

Scout also recently gave DeVito a significant bump in its rankings, with the New Jersey native now considered a high 3-star player and the #31 QB in the country (dual threat or pro-style). Scout also lists him as the top QB in New Jersey, and the second best signal caller in the East region, behind Maryland commit Kasim Hill.

If you want to get a better look at how DeVito has helped raise his profile, and just get a closer look at the Elite 11 and The Opening in general, check out the video above. It’s long, but well worth the watch.
