John Tyler senior linebacker Tre Allison has been committed to SMU for months, but that hasn't stopped other schools from taking an interest.

Allison (6-2, 211) reported an offer from Syracuse via Twitter on Tuesday.

He now owns eight Division I FBS scholarship offers. Syracuse is the second school from a Power 5 conference to target Allison, joining Mississippi State of the SEC.

Allison enjoyed success as a senior in 2017 with 89 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. John Tyler finished 5-5 on the season.

Syracuse is a member of the ACC, and is coached by Dino Babers, who has spent time in the state of Texas as an assistant at both Texas A&M and Baylor.

The Orange were 4-8 this season, but one of their wins came against defending national champion Clemson, which is the only loss on the Tigers' ledger this year.

Allison, like all seniors, can first sign with any team that offers him in the 72-hour early signing period from Dec. 20-22. He also can also sign on National Signing Day on Feb. 7, 2018.
