SU wide receiver competition heating up before season opener

SU football

Two weeks from Friday, the Syracuse University football team will be on the field inside the Dome, gearing up for the 2017 season opener.

There’s still plenty of work to be done before the first game.

Coach Dino Babers still needs to firm up the depth chart.

One position that still appears to be up for grabs is the No. 2 wide receiver spot, opposite Steve Ishmael.

Both Jamal Custis and Devin Butler have seen reps with the first-team offense.

The coaches have tried a number of different guys with the second unit as well – it’s become a heated competition to earn playing time.

SU will host Central Connecticut State on Friday, Sept. 1 at 7 p.m.
