The Syracuse secondary is need of a lot of work going into next season. With the loss of Phillip Thomas for good and Keon Lyn for at the least spring practice if not longer, more manpower and talent is needed. 

The top recruit on Syracuse's list right now could fill a hole immediately.

Defensive back Wayne Morgan of Brooklyn, NY has been considering Syracuse for a while and feels comfortable at the school.

Ranked 3 stars by Rivals and 4 Stars by ESPN, Morgan has been offered scholarships by seven schools.

Considered to be one of the top five players coming out of New York and one of the top 20 defensive backs in the country, Morgan has essentially limited his list to UConn and Syracuse. 

Current odds give Syracuse a 70 percent chance of signing the talented recruit and there is no evidence to show he has changed his tune. The deal-breaker has been Brandon Reddish, a former teammate who is also a part of the Orange football team.

Reddish helped make Morgan's visit to Syracuse successful back in December
