Syracuse Football: DE Tyler Marona Has A Knack To Play For Orange

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE

Last week the Syracuse Orange football program grabbed an OLB out of Alabama as a late signee for its 2013 class. We thought that might have been the last one, and we were wrong. DE Tyler Morona out of Pasadena City College is the new "last" recruit of the 2013 SU Class.

Last week the Syracuse Orange football program grabbed an OLB out of Alabama as a late signee for its 2013 class. We thought that might have been the last one, and we were wrong. DE Tyler Morona out of Pasadena City College is the new "last" recruit of the 2013 SU Class.

"He wasn't 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds five months ago," Fimbres said. "He should be commended for that, for putting in the work. It changed his recruitibility. Now the laws of physics areworking with him. It's bittersweet for us. I told him I'd love to see him if he put on 30 pounds. We're seeing it now."

Sounds like Marona could fit the prototypical model of a late bloomer, having gained 50 pounds since leaving high school. His stats aren't too much to speak of (25 tackles & 2 sacks in ten games) and his ratings aren't anything special (two stars from Scout and ESPN), but there must just be something that Coach Shafer and others see in him, since he chose SU over an offer from Colorado and interest from ACC rivals Miami & Maryland.

Marona will have four years to play three seasons and is hoping to challenge for playing time at the suddenly-depleted defensive end position.
