The return of Marcus Sales provides an element the Syracuse offense was missing.
After sitting out the 2011 season on a drug charge, a charge that was eventually dropped, Sales worked his way back into shape this spring. It’s a process that will continue in August, but he was able to get plenty of work the past weeks few thanks to injuries to a number of other receivers. When last seen during a game, Sales caught five passes for 172 yards and 3 touchdowns against Kansas State in the Pinstripe Bowl following the 2010 season. He has 68 career receptions.

Syracuse coach Doug Marrone has reinstated receiver Marcus Sales, who was suspended for the 2011 season.

Sales was arrested on drug charges last summer, charges that were dropped in late October. The Orange start spring practice March 20 and it is pivotal that Sales begin to associate with the team and get into playing shape. Sales can do himself a lot of good because help is needed. Alec Lemon, the leading returning receiver, will miss spring practice as he recovers from shoulder surgery. Van Chew, who was second among WRs in receptions and yards last year, expired his eligibility. Sales last played in the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl when he capped off a nice 2010 season (68-898-8) by going 5-172-3.

Sophomore wide receiver for the Syracuse Orange, Marcus Sales, led all wideouts in Saturday's spring game with 10 receptions, accumulating 100 yards by the end of the day.

Everyone has been talking about Mike Williams being the player to make or break the Orange this year, but it was Sales that stole the show on Saturday. With a consistent presence at quarterback, Sales could become a nice compliment to Williams.
