Next up on your Orange-Man Orientation, #24, Jaston George.

Position: Cornerback

Year: Freshman

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 159

Hometown: Chesapeake, VA

High School: Oscar F. Smith

2010 Stats: Was not a member of the team, so, none.

2011 Projections: I'd say George doesn't have much chance of seeing the field but the way our secondary is dropping like flies, he might be a starter by the end of the week. George is currently No. 3 on the depth chart at one of the DB slots, however both guys in front of him are starters at the moment and Keon Lyn could be down for a while. George should see some quality time on special teams but it might be a trial by fire at the corner as well. He's said to be in a dogfight with Brandon Reddish and Ritchy Desir for the 4th spot overall.

How'd He Get Here?: George reportedly also had offers from Richmond and Norfolk State as well as interest from UConn, East Carolina, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He chose Syracuse because the Orange were the first to offer, the coaches stayed in contact and he had a great visit. Fantastic all around.

Scouts/Rivals Said:.George is rated three-stars by ESPN as the 41st overall DB in the 2011 class.  Scout has him rated slightly lower at two stars, as does Rivals.

Money Quote: "Syracuse was the first school to offer me. I have been in constant contact with coaches and a great vibe from them. I took a visit up there and loved it. Syracuse has been on my mind. My family believes it's a great fit for me."

Links of Wonder: Jaston George’s Abs Dominate Yours, And He Knows It

Doug Marrone Thinks: Back in March, Marrone told Syracuse.com "he said he's been happy with the play of Syracuse's six early enrollees from the incoming freshman class. (Jeremiah) Kobena and (Jaston) George are two players who have shined in moments, playing on the second- or third-team offense and defense."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Jaston and WR Jeremiah Kobena got into it at one practice after a day of matching up against one another. It was broken up quickly and sounds like it was just a heat of the moment thing.
