Syracuse Football: Get To Know An Orange Man - #15 Shutang Mungwa

via si0.twimg.com

Say it with me...Shutang's Clan ain't nothin' to f*** with...

Name: Shutang "Shu" Mungwa

Position: Strong Safety

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6'1"

Weight: 207

Hometown: Oradell, NJ

High School: Bergen Catholic

2011 Stats: Shutang did not see any action on the field as a frosh due to injuries.

2012 Projections: Mungwa has potential to see some playing time this season, but he's still got a ways to go to work his way up the depth chart. He's choice No. 2B for both safety spots. But, as we know, it's an injury-plagued spot, so...

How'd He Get Here?: SU landed Shu through the fertile "really good student but can't quite qualify for Stanford" pipeline. Like Jarrod West before him, Shu had to wait to see if his scores would make him eligible to play for Stanford, and Syracuse remained heavily involved just in case it didn't work out with the Cardinal. In both cases, it's worked out for everyone. Rob Moore and Scott Shafer handled Shu's recruitment.

Here's what Mungwa told Dave Rahme about his recruitment:

"I told the Syracuse coaches at the time that they were right there, and they didn’t back away from me like a lot of schools after I made the commitment," said Mungwa, who also had scholarship offers from Louisville, Indiana and Akron. "I told them if anything happened at Stanford I would still be very interested, and I’m really glad they stuck with me. They told me I was high on their (recruiting) board."

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Scout gave Shu a 3-star rating, and ranked him as their #76 Safety. Rivals was slightly less impressed, giving him 2-stars.

Money Quote:

I'm just preparing myself, mentally and physically. I don't plan to be red-shirted. I plan to come in and make an impact. I'm hitting the weight room hard. I'm getting ready to make an impact freshman year."

Links of Wonder: Shu is on Twitter and he likes to share links to his videos there.

What Does Marrone Think: Marrone is very happy to see Shu back on the field this season:

"It’s great to see Shutang out there," Marrone said. "He was injured all last year. I told him, ‘It’s great to see you run and not limping anymore.’"

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Shu Mungwa isn't one for wasting time on things. After being denied admission to Stanford, it took him a whole 30 minutes to call up the coaches and commit to SU.

Let Us Get a Good Look Atchya: Shu is something of a music mogul in training. Check out his video for Light Up.
