Keondrick Lyn will be heading to Syracuse

The season was magical from start to finish for Keondrick Lyn. On Wednesday, it got a whole lot sweeter for the Miramar High safety.

The 6-1, 200-pounder, who had originally committed to Northern Illinois, made a switch and will now head to Syracuse.

“Everything on the visit went so well,” Lyn said. “The campus, coaching staff and what they have to offer in the classroom.”

Lyn, who took part in the Nike Miami-Dade/Broward All-Star Game, had a tremendous season. Not only was his play vital for the Patriots during the 6A state title run, but he stepped up and took a lead role on a team that was rated among the best defensive units in Florida.

“When I went to a basketball game on campus in Syracuse, I was sold on the college atmosphere,” Lyn said. “It was everything you dreamed that a college would like.”

As for the Syracuse football program, Lyn is excited to have the opportunity to play in the Big East for a program that continues to improve.

Most felt that a Miramar receiver would end up going to Morgantown and playing for West Virginia University. The only thing that most never figured it would be Donte Chambers.

With all eyes on Ivan McCartney on National Signing Day, many forgot one of Broward’s top receiver. Chambers (5-10, 175) has come up with some huge catches over the past two years for the Patriots and was instrumental in this year;s team taking a home a first ever state title.

Chambers joins Eugene Smith and Steadmon Bailey, who spent this year at West Virginia.
