2013 DT prospects likes SU

The Syracuse Orange are starting to develop depth at defensive tackle and they already have a few prospects set to sign with them for the class of 2012. Despite that the Orange will again look for defensive tackles in 2013.

One of those prospects is Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara's Darius Commissiong. The offer from the Orange meant a lot to him.

"I was excited I was glad to have my talents recognized."

Defensive tackle coach Jimmy Brumbaugh is who Commissiong talks with the most and the two have a relationship that is growing.

"I am in contact with Coach Brumbaugh and I feel like our relationship is good. I like him a lot he is real chill. I could see myself playing for him."

Right now he has not had a chance to visit Syracuse, but he does plan to take a visit to Syracuse this winter.

"I have not taken a visit to Syracuse yet. I will take a visit up there though probably sometime after my football season.

When the defensive prospects heads to Syracuse on his visit he will have some information about them because his head coach Bryce Bevill played for the Orange. Bevill however, does not talk about the Orange much in a way to pump them up.

"He hasn't said much after they offered me, when they did offer he told me I don't have to worry about college because I would have the opportunity to go to a prestigious school like Syracuse and that there is more to come."

The coach may not try to favor his alma mater, but he does tell his players stories from his playing days. Commissiong shared his favorite story with

"The story I like is about how he had played corner and he had just switched from receiver. A huge pulling lineman came around and tried to block him then Coach Bevill was scared and closed his eyes on contact, but when he opened his eyes the lineman was on the ground and he blew up the play."

Other than Syracuse the Maryland product is receiving interest from schools all over the country.

"I am getting interest right now from Boston College, Rutgers, Tennessee, Alabama, and Stanford as well as Syracuse."
