Tommy DeVito shines and more takeaways from start of Syracuse spring football

In front of a crop of 2020 recruits visiting campus, Syracuse football opened spring practices on Sunday.

“That was probably the best ‘star counts’ we’ve had here at Syracuse,” head coach Dino Babers said referencing the group of potential future signees. Among them were four-star wideout Jaden Dottin and defensive lineman Amin Vanover.
