If you're Syracuse, tucked away in central New York closer to the Canadian border than to any recruiting hotbed, where do your players come from?
In the case of Scott Shafer's Orange, far-and-wide.
In the last two recruiting cycles - 25 signees in 2014 and 17 commitments for 2015 - Shafer has nabbed players from 13 states.
The group of 42 includes just three in-staters.
Florida leads the way with 1, followed by Illinois with eight, and Pennsylvania and Connecticut with four each. No other state has provided more than two players.
Outside of Florida, Shafer has added five players from the Southeast - two from Georgia, and one each from Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina.
This year's incoming class of 25 includes one four-star prospect - wide receiver K.J. Williams of Cherry Hill, New Jersey - and 15 three-star rated players.
By position, the group includes five wide receivers, four linebackers, four defensive backs, three defensive linemen, two running backs, two offensive linemen and two 'athletes.'
Joining the Orange are quarterbacks A.J. Long of Lenanon, Tennessee and Alin Edouard of Hialeah, Florida; as well as wideouts Jamal Curtis of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Adly Enoicy of Deray Beach, Florida, Steve Ishmael of Miami, Florida, Corey Cooper of Matthews, North Carolina, and Williams.
Shafer went into the Atlanta area for linebacker Jonathan Thomas of Suwanee and defensive tackle Kayton Samuels of Lithonia.
