Shafer on Edouard: 'Hell yeah he's coming'

Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer provided an update on freshman quarterback Alin Edouard.

One of the major storylines throughout Syracuse football training camp has been the absence of one of their most high profile recruits, quarterback Alin Edouard. Edouard arrived in Syracuse over the summer with the rest of the freshman class but returned home prior to the start of training camp to deal with a personal, family matter.

There have not been specific updates over the last few weeks, and concern among the fan base was rising as to whether the man that some view as a potential future leader of the Orange offense would ever become part of the program.

Head coach Scott Shafer offered a brief update, but assured everyone that Edouard will in fact join Syracuse at some point.

”When he tells me he’s good to go, he’ll be good to go,” Shafer said. “It’s as simple as that. Simple as that. Yeah he’s coming. I’m not letting him… Hell yeah he’s coming. We’ve got to get him before school starts. Whenever the timing is right for him and his family he’ll be here. We’ll be behind him all the way.”

Right now, redshirt freshmen Austin Wilson, Mitch Kimble and true freshman A.J. Long are battling to backup Terrel Hunt. Recommended Stories
