Top Syracuse booster and upstate New York businessman Adam Weitsman is going all in for Syracuse athletics.

Weitsman is famously well-connected, as his social media is full of photos of himself with the biggest celebrities in the world. Weitsman is also known for his philanthropy, especially in the Syracuse community.

Weitsman recently shared that he currently has over $1 million tied up in NIL deals for Syracuse student-athletes, according to The deals are with eight current players from several different sports. Deals with five additional Syracuse student-athletes are in the process of being finalized. 

The powerful businessman did not elaborate on the specifics of the deals; once completed, the total would be over $1 million. The players signing these deals are not marketing Weitsman-owned companies. Instead, the players will be working with Syracuse-area charities and non-profits. 

While Weitsman is currently working to take care of current student-athletes, he also has his eyes set on future talent. 

Boogie Fland is a five-star combo guard out of White Plains, NY. The talented guard is being heavily sought-after by over 30 schools. Naturally, Weitsman has entered the conversation, reportedly discussing a “multi-year, seven-figure,” deal with the athlete. This would be the largest individual NIL deal offered by Weitsman. 

Important to note, “pay-for-play” deals are not allowed under NIL regulations. Weitsman stresses that the university is not brought up in his discussions with recruits.

Whichever school lands Fland will be getting a game-changing player. Fland is rated as the second-best prospect in New York for the 2024 class and the 12th-best prospect in the nation. 

With Weitsman’s generous NIL donations, future and incoming student-athletes will know they have the potential to cash in at Syracuse.
