Garfield senior RB Tyson Gulley orally committed to Syracuse on Wednesday night, according to Garfield coach Bob Sax.
Gulley also had several offers from Mid-American Conference schools. He had scheduled an official visit to Central Michigan Dec. 12, but made the commitment to Syracuse on Wednesday night.
Gulley, who is 5-9 and 175 pounds, was an all-Beacon Journal selection this season.
"I think it is a good fit," Sax said in an e-mail. "Most schools are interested in the type of player he is since most are running the spread. He can run the ball and catch it from the flanker spot. I'm sure they will use him to return punts and kicksoffs as well. He is multi-dimensional and that is what makes him such a great player."
He rushed 167 times for 952 yards and 14 touchdowns. Completed 8-of-18 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Had four receptions for 47 yards and one touchdown. Had 51 tackles, caused one fumble, had four interceptions and blocked a field goal. He also was the City Series Offensive Player of the Year.
