Dino Babers picked up Syracuse's third running back commit of the 2017 class on Monday.

Class of 2017 running back B.J. Daniels has committed to Syracuse, he announced in a tweet on Monday evening. The commitment comes two days after the Orange picked up fellow class of 2017 running back Markenzy Pierre.

Daniels, a 6-foot-2, 208-pound back out of Palm Bay (Florida) Senior High School, ranks 90th at his position, according to composite rankings. The three-star recruit runs a 4.51 40-yard dash, per his profile, and has a 36-inch vertical.

He chose SU over offers from South Florida, Maryland and Colorado State. He joins Allen Stritzinger and Pierre as Syracuse’s third running back in the class. He’s Syracuse’s 20th commit and sixth player from Florida in the 2017 class.
