The Orange lose a couple

ILB Darius Parson (Woodbridge, Va.) and RB Tyree Smallwood (New Windsor, N.Y./Milford Academy) are no longer committed to Syracuse, multiple sources report.

Parson has yet to qualify academically and he was told by the coaching staff that there wasn't a scholarship for him in the current class, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

Smallwood originally signed with the Orange as part of the Class of 2011 coming out of Cornwall Central High School (Cornwall, N.Y.). His high school coach, Marcus Hughes, told the Times Herald-Record that Smallwood has decommitted:

"I know he isn't going to Syracuse. Tyree clearly isn't talking to anyone about it, I don't know why he isn't going."

The Orange now have 20 commitments for the Class of 2012.
