McElroy wouldn't mind coming east
Chaffey Community College cornerback Deyon McElroy will be making a trip to to the Cuse this weekend, and could possibly make a commitment if all goes well.
"I'm not really sure, I just have to see how it goes," said McElroy, a speedy 6-foot-tall, 170-pound juco sophomore from Rialto, Calif.
McElroy intercepted six passes, broke up 20 more and made 40 tackles in leading Chaffey to a 7-3 mark this past season. He also returned a blocked extra point 94 yards for a two-point conversion. Syracuse currently has four commitments from defensive backs, but McElroy would likely be one of the most ready-made if he was to ink with the Orange.
McElroy, who is being recruited by linebackers coach Steve Russ, described his playing style like this: "I'm like a finesse cornerback, but I can tackle and I'm not afraid to tackle."
He's also not afraid of the cold temperatures in Syracuse, or the far distance from his West Coast home.
"The location doesn't really matter to me one way or the other," he said. "As long as it's a good place for me to be."
So far, McElroy's lone offer is from Wyoming, which he visited last week. He said Syracuse has been recruiting him for about a month. Syracusefan.com will give you the word should McElroy become a member of the 2007 recruiting class.
