Jamar's Facebook

Today, "Get to Know" offensive tackle Jamar McGloster!

Name: Jamar McGloster

Position: Offensive Tackle

Year: (RS) Freshman

Height: 6'5"

Weight: 311

Hometown: Hillside, N.J.

High School: St. Anthony High School

2013 Stats: None -- redshirted

2014 Projections: With such an experienced group of linemen returning for Syracuse, it's going to be hard for anyone new to crack the rotation. But as of right now, McGloster could certainly get some time on the field. He has great size and could be used to give Sean Hickey a break from time to time.

How'd He Get Here: Syracuse handed him a late offer after he resolved some SAT score issues.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Nothing, but again, that's not a bad thing at all.

Money Quote: From St. Anthony head coach Ed Stinson:

"There didn't appear that there was any way a kid at this point could get a scholarship. The combination of an availability of a scholarship, him getting himself academically qualified and then the circumstance of being introduced to these people. I had never coached him, but to me he passed the eye test of being a college football prospect. The rest of it just fell into place circumstantially. Everything connected."

Links Of Wonder: McGloster played basketball for four years at St. Anthony, winning the state championship his junior year.

Twitterfeed: Jamar's handle is @BiG_MiC_ if you're looking for him on the Twitter.

Tweets Of Wonder: McGloster looking dapper at the 'Cuse Awards:

What Does Shafer Sean Hickey Think Of Him: Nothing from the coaches, though Sean Hickey seems pretty confident in both McGloster and Jon Burton and will be taking on a big mentor-ship role with both players this year.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Here's a great, in-depth story on how Jamar got to Syracuse and how Pat Perles found him when virtually no one else was paying attention.
