Here’s a brief look at the first five of the group.Reminder: Original Class of 2015 commit Brandon Ginnetti will arrive in January as part of the Class of 2016 and Trey Dunkelberger is a junior college transfer, so he won’t be included in the freshman class. All physical measurements are according to Scout.Tyrone Perkins, running back, Friends Academy (New York)On Sept. 6, 2014, Perkins tore his right ACL in a preseason scrimmage. He didn’t know if Syracuse would uphold its scholarship offer that he accepted on April 16.“The first second it happened, I was just focused on the knee,” Perkins told The Daily Orange in September. “But after that, I was really nervous and scared about what was going to go on with (Syracuse).”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange honored his commitment and he’s one of three running backs in the class. A 6-foot, 190-pound three-star prospect, Perkins is now part of a group that will look to reverse the fortunes of one that only got two rushing touchdowns from its running backs all of last season.Jordan Fredericks, running back, Lawrence (New York) High SchoolFredericks became the second running back commit and second overall verbal pledge in the class when he gave SU his commitment on April 24, 2014. The three-star back stands at 5 feet 11 inches and 196 pounds, and carried the ball 184 times for 2,156 yards and 35 touchdowns in his senior season, according to MaxPreps.Sam Clausman, offensive tackle, St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida) High SchoolClausman is part of a unit that Shafer emphasized as a focus in this class, offensive line, and the 6-foot-4, 290-pounder will join four other freshmen in that group. One of them is high school teammate Colin Byrne, and the two St. Thomas products will join a unit that will try and rebound from a poor 2014 after being hampered by injury and now two graduations.Cody Conway, offensive tackle, Plainfield North (Illinois) High SchoolConway was one of three offensive linemen to commit on May 16, 2014, joining Clausman and Byrne. He’s 6 feet 6 inches, 280 pounds and one of two offensive linemen in the class from Illinois along with Andrejas Duerig. There are only three players taller than him — offensive tackles Jamar McGloster, Jon Burton and Denzel Ward — on Syracuse’s current roster.Colin Byrne, offensive tackle, St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida)Byrne was one of several potential recruits and verbal pledges to make the trip up to MetLife Stadium to watch Syracuse take on then-No. 8 Notre Dame on Sept. 27, 2014. He joins Syracuse as yet another lineman to help rebuild a broken unit and his 6-foot-5, 295-pound stature will provide yet another big body that SU can possibly turn to if it faces the same injury fate as last year.

first_imgSome aggrieved farmers, who are women, have blamed the Johnsonville Township Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Bettie, for allegedly engaging into the sale of wetlands meant for farming purposes in the township.The women calling themselves, “Johnsonville Women Farmers’ Cooperative, made the disclosure recently to the Daily Observer newspaper in Paynesville.The spokesperson for the group, Ethel Williams, told this paper that about 7 hectares of farm land in Mount Barclay is being encroached upon.According to her, Commissioner Bettie is behind the sale of the wet land.“A relative of the commissioner is found selling the land for which he Bettie is aware. We have called his attention to this problem but to no avail,” she said.Madam William said that the land in question was given to them by the former commissioner of the township for farming activities.“Swamplands are public land and strictly intended for agricultural purposes. In 2009, we appealed for the land from the former commissioner and he allowed us to use it,” she said.“Unfortunately, today this particular land is being sold to some individuals, who have planted cornerstones on portions of the land. These people have constantly threatened the farmers and are backfilling the land,” she added.She further stated that this was posing a serious problem for them as many of the members of the farming organization were widows, who survived through farming, adding that such condition was a threat to food security.    When contacted, Commissioner Bettie denied the allegation as false and misleading. He said though he is aware of some people in his township engaging in the unscrupulous sale of land but was something that could not control.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
