Among them were four-star wideout Jaden Dottin and defensive lineman Amin Vanover.Babers also noted Sunday was the best opening day practice he’s seen since coming to SU.Quarterback Tommy DeVito, now listed as the starter following Eric Dungey’s graduation, looked good in practice, Babers said. At the end of practice, DeVito threw two touchdown passes during nonpadded, 11-on-11 drills — he connected with Taj Harris on a deep ball in the back corner of the end zone on the second.The other touchdown went to transfer receiver Trishton Jackson. He, along with transfer running back Abdul Adams, are finally on the depth chart after waiting a year and accounting for three touchdowns in SU’s bowl win.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThree defensive backs — Evan Foster, Scoop Bradshaw and Kyle Strickland — wore green non-contact jerseys for practice.
