Get To Know Your Orange Man - #14 John Kinder

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE

He recently switched from Quarterback to Wide Receiver. Let's get to know John Kinder.

Name: John Kinder

Position: Quarterback turned Wide Receiver

Year: RS Junior

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 187

Hometown: Inwood, NY

High School: Lawrence

2012 Stats: He played on special teams against USC and Stony Brook, but no stats yet.

2013 Projections: Well, after pulling the ole' switch-er-oo earlier this month, no one's really sure. Making the move certainly increased his chances of seeing the field, though.

How'd He Get Here?: He vetoed BooConn, Rutgers, and Temple.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Three stars from both.

Money Quote: On the ever-elusive quarterback decision:

"Both of those guys look great," Kinder said referring to Hunt and Allen. "And I trust that the coaches are going to put the best player on the field and put our team in the best position to win."

Links of Wonder: Take a look at this piece on Kinder's decision and how he approached Shafer about the move to wide receiver.

What Does Shafer Think: After the second straight day that Kinder played WR, he said,

John Kinder, I just love him to death. He came to me. He wants to play. He wants an opportunity.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: He was the 2009 New York State Class A Player of the Year, and his full name is John Fitzgerald Kinder, Jr. Just look at those initials for a hot second.

Ok, I gave you two nuggets, but they're good nuggets.
