Get To Know Your Orange Man - #83, WR/H-Back Sean Avant

USA TODAY Sports

"Get to Know..." sophomore Orange wideout Sean Avant.

Name: Sean Avant

Position: Wide Receiver/H-Back

Year: (RS) Freshman

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 193

Hometown: Miramar, Fla.

High School: Miramar High School

2013 Stats: Sean did not appear in any games this past season, since he redshirted.

2014 Projections: ... And he may not appear in any this year. Or at least not many. Wideout's far too crowded for him and H-Back has plenty of bodies already too. But perhaps he manages to see the field from time to time.

How'd He Get Here: George McDonald went ahead and snapped him up after Mario Cristobal was fired and left all of FIU's recruits scrambling for better landing spots.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Rivals and ESPN both said three stars. Two stars from the others.

Money Quote: "I'm that receiver, you need a first down, throw it to me, I'll make a move. Speed is not very on my side, but I play the game with attitude." - Avant tells us why he's going to be a star for SU.

Links Of Wonder: Lots on exactly how Avant arrived at Syracuse, via Syracuse.com.

Twitterfeed: No dice for Sean. He's one of a surprisingly significant number of Orange football players who does not tweet. Might be for the best, guys...

Tweets Of Wonder: Very nice catch here by Avant here (from back in High School):

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: Back in March, Shafer told ESPN that he was really excited to see what Avant could do this season. SMFS has been a fan from day one too, since he persistently pushed to recruit him both before and after getting the Syracuse head coaching gig.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: A bunch of interesting folks once went to Miramar, including former Orange DB Keon Lyn. Some other names you may know: Former WVU football stars Geno Smith and Stedman Bailey, plus movie star Johnny Depp.

Let's Get A Good Look Atcha: Via Instagram, a solid video of Avant from this spring:
