Twitty pleased with Orange visit
Mount Holly (NJ) Rancocas Valley Regional defensive line prospect Dominic Twitty was offered by the Syracuse Orange about a month ago and this past weekend he took a visit to see the Orange in action.
"We did make it up to Syracuse for the spring game on Saturday. I really liked the visit a lot. I really liked the campus, the players, and the coaching staff."
Twitty, 6-foot-2, 260 pounds did not know what to expect when he took the trip, but he was happy with what he saw when he arrived on campus.
"On the trip to Syracuse it really reminded me of my neighborhood and where I am from. I really liked that."
Besides the location of Syracuse being something that Twitty liked the Orange coaching staff also made a great first impression on the prospect.
"The coaches really stuck out to me they were really energetic. They were just talking to all the players that visited and getting them pumped up like they were on the team."
One other item that stuck out to the Garden State product was the fans in attendance at the Syracuse Spring game.
"I did not expect so many people to be there, I did not know how many people would be there and there were a lot of people there. I also did not expect their stadium to be so big."
Since the spring game was going on Twitty did not get a chance to speak with any current members of the Syracuse football team. He did however catch up with a prospect that will be joining the Orange soon.
"I did not talk with any of the current players, but I talked with a guy that committed and is coming in and will play defensive tackle for Syracuse. We talked about the facilities and why he picked Syracuse over every other school that was recruiting him."
After the visit to Syracuse have the Orange jumped up on Twitty's list?
"Where does Syracuse stand in my mind right now? I really do not have that many options now, but I like them and I could see myself playing there."
After heading to Syracuse this past weekend Twitty now plans to take a little break before starting to visit schools again.
