The Syracuse Orange football team took a significant blow on Tuesday.
Starting cornerback Duce Chestnut announced that he is entering the transfer portal after two seasons with the Orange.
He is the ninth Syracuse player to enter the portal since the end of the regular season. He joins wide receiver Dom Foster, defensive lineman Josh Hough, wide receiver Courtney Jackson, defensive lineman Steve Linton, offensive lineman Tyler Magnuson, wide receiver Anthony Queeley, offensive lineman Chad Schuster and defensive back Jeremiah Wilson.
When Garrett Williams officially declares for the NFL Draft, Syracuse will be without two of its 2022 starting cornerbacks next season.
The Orange has added from the portal, landing a commitment from Richmond offensive lineman Joe More, Alabama defensive tackle Braylen Ingraham, and Nebraska defensive back Jaeden Gould.
