    Congrats Trey! 'Cuse is a program I'd like to see turned around and I hope Mr. Fairchild has a big hand in it.

    It's a shame we won't get to see Trey in S&G, because I think he's got the potential to be a superstar in the slot. Good luck at Syracuse Trey!! You've got some fans on this board that will be following your games in NY. Tear up the Big East!

    I have had the luxury of having Trey beat up on me at every level of competition at just about every sport ever since we were in the third grade. He's a great kid and it's only fitting that he's moving on to bigger and better things. I can't wait to see him in college and tell people that I had the chance to play against him in football.

    Now that I think of it, though, I did beat him in basketball earlier this year...

    Syracuse Gets a Talented Team Player

    Coffman High School in Dublin Ohio has a number of top rated prospects this year including speedy wide receiver/return specialist Trey Fairchild. Fairchild recently picked Syracuse over teams like Ball State, Navy, Air Force,Army, and Duke.​

    By Steve Patterson​

    Trey Fairchild pulled in 51 passes for 766 yards this past season in addition to rushing for another 280 yards on 21 carries and returning kicks for the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks. The 6'1" senior has been timed at 4.4 seconds in the 40 and shows his speed on the football field. Track limited his spring visits but he did make a trip to Cincinnati for their junior day. I did not get to attend too many junior days; I was training for track and just did not get a chance to travel to all the ones I was invited too. I did get to Cincinnati and it was great, I loved their workout complex and the coaches were cool too. Most of my time with coaches was spent texting and calling them. He told us recently.​

    The early offers for Fairchild included Duke, Ball State and Navy. He verbally committed to Syracuse after a spring game visit last month. I like them all, Ohio State, Ball State, Navy and Duke. OSU of course almost every high school kid in central Ohio would love to have interest from the Buckeyes, but they were looking for bigger wide receivers, not guys my size. Ball State is on the right track, when the coaches visited me it was great and Head Coach Hoak said he rarely visits recruits, so that was cool. Navy is an honor, they look for a certain type of individual and to think they would consider me, made me feel special. The service academies are like that, Air Force offered me last week, too. Duke is a great academic school and I considered them heavily. He told us about the schools contending for his services prior to his commitment.​

    The family atmosphere was the deciding factor in selecting Syracuse. No other school gave me the same feeling. Fairchild explained about his excitement in joining the Syracuse 2008 class. Coach Russ who is the D-Coordinator recruited me, and he is a special guy. When I went to the spring game, they made it clear I was their guy and Coach Robinson (head coach) emphasized academics to my parents and me. We met with a Dean. They have put a lot of money into Manley (workout facility). A new weight room, cafeteria and they will have a new indoor practice facility when I get there. The Dome was amazing, and the campus was beautiful. Football wise, they are using a new system now, west coast, the same the Broncos used when they won the Super Bowls and Coach Robinson was there. They are now getting Coach's recruits on the field and I think will make some noise in the Big East in the next 4-5 years, and I want to be a part of that. They want me to be able to play all 3 wide receiver spots and do returns.​

    With many months before National Letter of Intent Signing Day some recruits continue to make visits and even switch commitments prior to officially committing to a team, but Fairchild is set on his plans. No, I am committed to Syracuse and I think to make additional visits would be disrespectful to the school and coaches.​

    Coffman is looking to make a run for a state championship with all the senior talent they have coming back for one final year. At Coffman, we are working hard in the weight room and now that the camp season is over we can all be in there together. Some of us are doing some extra speed training, like me. We get together and throw on our own. Coach Crabtree and Coach Crager push us real hard in the weight room and in conditioning. Our goals are high!​

    Fairchild is a team player who doesn't focus on individual statistics as he told us when we spoke with him this past week. Our team goal is to win the state championship. My goal is to do whatever it takes to help us get there. If you worry about individual stuff it breaks down the team. We have been focused on this for a long time. It is all about Coffman; it is the name on the front that matters, not the name on the back.​

    Mayes breaks it down

    Ryan Murray
    AMP: Mayes commits to Cuse
    Talk about it in Cuse Council

    Carl Cutler was the last Syracuse prospect to pull the trigger at the end of June and now, almost a month since then the Orange have gained another verbal pledge. Grant Mayes, a 6-foot-0, 180 pound defensive back picked Syracuse over offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Michigan State, and Temple.

    The verbal Mays gave is solid as he will shut down his recruitment, so what led the prospect to make this choice?

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Mayes looks to make an impact in the defensive backfield"I really like the coaching staff when I first got in contact with them I really liked the staff and I really liked the defensive backs coach. Coach Robinson just the tradition that he has, Greg Robinson is unbelievable as far as tradition and where he has been he has already coached at the next level in the NFL so the experience he and his staff have is overwhelming."

    Mayes started out being recruited by then running backs coach Desmond Robinson until he was promoted to head of football operations and after that Derrick Jackson handled the recruiting for Mayes. It was Jackson's extra time doing research that helped Mayes feel comfortable with the school.

    "Desmond Robinson was recruiting me and then when he got promoted Coach Jackson the defensive line coach took over and he made sure that we talked and the thing that really stood out for me was that Jackson took his time to really look at recruiting as far as how many defensive backs other teams that offered me took in the years past. He really showed me that Syracuse was a great choice for a future defensive back."

    Two other factors that helped with this decision were early playing time and the location of the school.

    "The most important thing to me was playing and as long as I could play at a division-1A level in a BCS conference how could I go wrong. I was blessed to get the first offer from Illinois and I said that is great, but I new more were going to come. When the Syracuse offer came I thought Big East a little closer to home and my family could see a lot of games and that's what mattered to me."

    When it comes to early playing time the coaches have told him that he may get the chance to play his first year on campus because of the size that he brings to the position.

    "As far as coming in early and playing Greg Robinson talked to me a lot about my height and he said that it is what sets me apart from every defensive back they have and he said they are leaning towards the taller longer defensives backs now."

    One more aspect of the Orange that caught the eye of Mayes is their long history. Even though he was unaware of the legacy Ernie Davis left he new all there was to know about Jim Brown. He is also a fan of the resume Greg Robinson has.

    "There is a heck of a lot of tradition up there you have the number forty four in the locker room its crazy with Jim Brown. The tradition is just crazy Coach Robinson coached in the NFL as well."

    Many recruits when the commit do not know much about the other players who have picked the same school but in this case Mayes has been well informed about fellow Orange commit Trey Fairchild.

    "I have heard about one commitment already Trey Fairchild. I talked with DeVeir Posey on the phone a couple days ago and he told me that Trey is legit and he runs the 100 meters in about 10.7. If he was in New Jersey he would have probably won the 100 meter dash. I think Mason Robinson won in New Jersey with a 10.5 or 10.6.

    "I think what sets me apart is definitely my body type I looked a lot of the corners in my class and I am taller than them. I think what sets me apart from other corners is my aggression and wanting to get after it and guard the best players."

    Rivals ran a video clip after Mayes picked the Orange and he feels that what was said in that clip shows what he is all about.

    "I saw my clip on Rivals about me at the combine and all I wanted to do was go up against the best. I called out Devier Posey, Dejuan Miller, and Lynell Payne that is all I wanted to go up against while the other corners were in the back watching. I just wanted to go up against the best cause I wanted to show everybody that I could lock them down."

    In a couple years Mayes thinks that the Orange will be on top of the conference and he also added that it only takes one big year for that turn around to happen.

    "It only takes one year. Everybody looks at Rutgers they had a really big year and now they are on top so it really only takes one year. USC was down for awhile until [Pete} Carroll got there and I think Robinson has the same kind of popularity that Carroll has and he can come in and change things. I think it is just a couple more years until Syracuse is back on top in the Big East."

    On the night that Mayes chose the Orange he spoke with Head Coach Greg Robinson and they talked about how they both are looking for a challenge and do not went to compete with a lesser opponent as was made an example by the future Orange opponents.

    "Greg Robinson was talking to me on the phone he is a very confident coach and he was telling me they do not play any D-1AA's like Howard or anything like that and some guys have teams like Villanova and we got Washington, Iowa this year and next year we have Penn State and Notre Dame and in two years we fly out to Southern California that's the kind of confidence he has in Syracuse we don't play 1-AA's. That is really when I committed to him that night but he said in two years I will be on the team flying to USC so it does not get much better than that."

    As far as the Orange fans go Mayes has a message for them about the player they will see for years to come.

    "I just want the fans to know that they are going to get a hard working guy on campus and a hard working corner who has shut down and lock down ability and I just can't wait to get after it."
