Dino Babers' first full recruiting class is the Class of 2017. Follow along during the recruiting cycle, here.

As National Signing Day approaches (Feb. 1, 2017), keep tabs on Syracuse’s 2017 recruiting class. Included are star rankings, notable offers and commitment dates according to 247Sports.com’s composite rankings and Scout.com. Syracuse’s Class of 2017 once included two commits from Scott Shafer’s era but both have since decommitted. Head coach Dino Babers replaced Shafer on Dec. 5, 2015. Babers’ first 2017 commitment was quarterback Tommy DeVito.
