Syracuse Orange football updates are popping up like toadstools on a...whatever toadstools pop up on.

First of all, your long, regional nightmare is over. Punter Riley Dixon has returned to the SU football team. The walk-on kicker had left the team but changed his mind, apparently.

There's a few other walk-ons worth noting on the squad as well.

Freshman Jacob Green from Seattle Prep in Seattle (Had I known I would have done some scouting), junior defensive back Josh Mims from Nottingham High School & Buffalo State and freshman offensive lineman Seamus Shanley from West Genesee High School.

Meanwhile, it's official. Quinta Funderburk is here and he will sit out the 2012 season after transferring from Arkansas. Meanwhile, Iowa transfer John Raymon is still waiting to hear if he'll be able to play this year.

"With John Raymon there is an NCAA process we’re going through with him right now, so we do not know his eligibility for the season yet," Marrone said. "With Quinta Funderburk, obviously he will sit out a year and that will be his redshirt year."

Junior college transfers Cris Clark and Davon Walls are on the roster and both eligible to play right away.

Meanwhile, Markus Pierce-Brewster, George Morris III, Ben Barrett and Zian Jones are all officially back on the roster as well after dealing with academic issues.

All in all, no major surprises on the day, and that's a win for Syracuse.

We'll have Get To Know Your Orange Man profiles on all the transfers and walk-ons this week...
