Beaver Falls junior Josh Hough, who saw his recruiting stock rise quickly in recent months, committed Monday to Syracuse.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound running back and linebacker announced his decision on Twitter. Hough drew nearly 20 Division I offers and received them all since Jan. 10.

Syracuse offered him a scholarship Feb. 1 while he visited the school’s campus for junior day activities.

One of his most recent offers came last week from Pitt. He also had a Power 5 offer from Kentucky.

Rivals ranks Hough as a two-star prospect.

His other offers were from Akron, Ball State, Bethune-Cookman, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Coastal Carolina, Duquesne, Eastern Michigan, Eastern Kentucky, Kent State, Toledo, UMass, William & Mary and Youngstown State.

Hough rushed for 1,273 yards and scored 18 touchdowns last season. He was named offensive co-MVP in the Class 3A Tri-County West.
