Get To Know Your Orange Man - #52 NT Eric Crume

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The anchor of the 2014 defensive line is up next in our season preview series.

Name: Eric Crume

Position: Nose Tackle

Year: Senior

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 296

Hometown: Detroit, MI

High School: Detroit Central High School

2013 Stats: Crume played in every game last season for the Orange, garnering 28 total tackles, 5 TFLs and a blocked punt.

2014 Projections: Crume is the anchor of the defensive line this season. The starting nose tackle will likely line up next to Ryan Sloan and a whole host of defensive ends auditioning for the part.

How'd He Get Here?: The guys from Iowa, Michigan, and Michigan State didn't wish him a happy birthday, apparently.

Scout/Rivals Said: Two stars all the way.

Money Quote: "My eyes lit up, and I just stuck my hand out," Crume said. "I saw the opportunity, and it brought me back to my basketball days like trying to block a shot. It was very fun for me."

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: "Eric Crume has done a nice job at tackle. I'm pleased with the progress he's made. He had a pretty good season for us last year, but he's continued to improve there."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: His middle name is Armani. Done.
