Augustus Edwards Will Commit To Syracuse, According To Sources

The Syracuse Orange football program's goal of owning the New York City recruiting trail could move one step closer to becoming a reality Tuesday, as Staten Island running back Augustus Edwards, Class of 2013, is expected to make his commitment to SU at 10 a.m. ET on MSGVarsity.com.

According to sources, Edwards (6-foot-1, 200-pounds) will chose Syracuse over schools like: Boston College, Connecticut, Miami, Pittsburgh and Rutgers. Edwards is rated three stars by Rivals, three stars by ESPN and three stars by Scout.

The commitment of Edwards, the No. 3 recruit in the state of New York, not only will add play-making talent to the backfield, but also could lead to another even bigger signing for the Orange -- defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko.

Ogundeko is also a native of Brooklyn, NY and a friend of Edwards, and both have said they would like to attend college together. Ogundeko (6-4, 265) is the better prospect out of the two, and has scholarship offers from a lot of major schools such as Alabama and Ohio State.

Ogundeko is expected to announce his commitment in a few weeks.
