Williams, who was supposed to join Syracuse in time for this season.Syracuse has interest in 10 uncommitted wide receivers in the Class of 2015, according to Scout.com. Shafer didn’t address the wide receiver spectrum specifically, but offered some insight to his mind as a recruiter.“In this day and age, it’s very fluid. It never finishes where it starts,” Shafer said. “You have to be in the mode of being able to adjust as things come up — injuries, transfers, positional moves. I tell my guys all the time we’re going into the season with a plan and then we’ll readjust as we move forward depending upon all those factors that you have to take into account.”Although Syracuse has gathered what it has of the class in record time, the Orange only has one pass-catcher, West Lindor — a two-star tight end — verbally pledged to its Class of 2015. On the current roster, Syracuse has a freshman wideout in Steve Ishmael and two freshmen tight ends in Adly Enoicy and Jamal Custis.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“For us, it’s fluid and it’ll be ever-changing and moving, as it will be for a lot of recruits as well,” Shafer said. “That’s the reality of what it is. Never a dull moment.” Commentslast_img
