A quarterback from Oklahoma. A wide receiver from Arkansas. A defensive lineman from Iowa. About a dozen guys from JUCOs. The 2013 Syracuse Orange football team is going to be a rag-tag collection of other school's cast-offs. And I'm totally fine with that.
Add one more JUCO to the mix now that Riverside City College OL Michael Lasker has committed to play for SU this season, per CuseNation.com.
That officially makes the Class of 2013 twenty-three members deep.
Lasker is a big hoss at 6-feet tall and a whopping 315 pounds. And all of that is excited to come to SU this season...

Lasker reportedly also received interest from San Diego State and SE Louisiana.
With depth an issue at OL, Lasker might be able to make an immediate impact for the Orange, though most JUCOs have needed a year of seasoning. Watch some highlights here.
