CFC#4 Palmer commits to NCAA’s Syracuse Orange (VIDEO)

NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team Syracuse Orange is creating a Canadian pipeline.

On the heels of #CFC100 Tyrell Richards committing to the school this past Saturday, #CFC100 fourth ranked Josh Palmer becomes the second Canadian prospect to commit to the Orange in recent days.  He officially announced his verbal commitment on social media:

Palmer disclosed to media outlets south of the border that he opted for the Orange because of their facilities and academics. He will officially sign in early February, 2017 at NCAA National Signing Day.

The 6’2, 200 pound receiver from Brampton, Ontario also received offers from Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, Louisville Cardinals, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Pitt Panthers, Fresno State Bulldogs, Bowling Green Falcons, Purdue Boilermakers, Maryland Terrapins, University of Illinois Fighting Illini, University of Michigan Wolverines, University of Temple Owls, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Northern Illinois Huskies, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Wake Forest Demon Deacons during his recruitment process.

Currently, the Ontario receiver is playing south of the border in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with the St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders. This past fall at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Palmer helped the Raiders win the Class 7A Florida state title as the Raiders crushed opponents Melbourne Viera 45-10.

Previous to the Raiders, Palmer has suited up for both the St. Roch Ravens of the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA) and Burlington Stampeders of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

In 2014, Palmer participated in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC), guiding the Team Halton-Peel to a 15-14 victory over Team West in the Varsity Game.

Last month, he was ranked fourth on the first edition of the #CFC100 #CLASS2017 RANKINGS.
