Exeter’s Froumy selects Syracuse

Exeter High School’s Willem Froumy said he planned to make a decision about his future this summer, but he scrapped that plan on Tuesday when he committed to Syracuse University.

Froumy, a 6-6 1/2, 290-pound offensive and defensive tackle, visited Syracuse last weekend and receiver an offer Monday.

“I planned to make a big board with all the schools that had offered me this summer,” Froumy said. “Then I would go down the checklist of things like coaching staff, players, location of the school and see which one I liked the best. Syracuse checked all those boxes. When I met the staff face to face I knew that’s where I wanted to spend the next few years of my life.”

Froumy, 17,  played primarily defensive tackle for Exeter last season, but said he expects to play offensive tackle at Syracuse.

“He has all the measurables they’re looking for at that level,” Exeter coach Bill Ball said. “Good feet. He’s obviously got the wingspan and the length they’re all looking for and he’s done a good job of getting stronger. He also has a frame that will allow him to put on more weight.”

Froumy, who will be a senior in the fall, also had offers from UNH, UMass, UMaine and Bryant. He said he has also been talking with Boston College, Connecticut and Villanova.

“He had a lot of good choices,” Ball said. “He’s worked hard and he has a great opportunity ahead of him.”
