The Syracuse Orange have another "Yes" on the board, and yet another student-athlete from the state of New York is giving it.
Qadir White, an offensive tackle from Cardinal Hayes High School in Bronx, New York, announced his verbal commitment to Syracuse's football program via social media on Twitter at p.m. ET.
The Bronx prospect fielded over 20 national offers, choosing Syracuse over historic rival Penn State, historic and current Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) rivals Pittsburgh, Boston College, and Miami (FL), N.C. State also inside the ACC, Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools Auburn and Georgia, UCLA of the PAC-12, and Minnesota of the Big Ten, among others.
He is the 15th member of the 2018 recruiting class for the Orange, and is the third offensive lineman to give the nod to Syracuse, fourth if you include Gabe Horan of the Baldwinsville (NY) Bees, who currently plays tight end at the Charles W. Baker High School.
The two other offensive linemen verbally committed to Syracuse for the 2018 incoming recruiting class are offensive tackle Willem Froumy from Exeter High School in Exeter, New Hampshre, and center Tyrone Sampson, Jr., from East English Village Prep in Detroit, Michigan.
Along with Horan, White marks three verbal commitments to the Orange from the state of New York, with the inclusion of Atrilleon "Trill" Williams coming from Archbisop Stepinac in White Plains, New York.
