Get To Know Your Orange Man: DE #51 Donnie Simmons

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE

Counting down, you get the gist. Donnie Simmons, you're up. Prepare to be shamed.

Name: Donnie Simmons

Position: Defensive End

Year: Senior

Height: 6-2

Weight: 251

Hometown: Hartsdale, NY

High School: Archbishop Stepinac

2013 Stats: Did not play in any games after playing in all 13 games his sophomore season.

2014 Projections: At this point, he's a depth guy. After recovering from a torn ACL, seeing action in games this season would be a major accomplishment.

How'd he get here? SU offered him after a strong showing at a Penn State Nike Elite camp. He chose us over Akron.

What'd recruiting sites say? Scout gave him three stars while Rivals gave him two.

Money Quote: On how he felt after tearing his ACL.

You always feel like Superman until Superman gets hit with the Kryptonite

Pretty sure that was a crappy song from my childhood.

Links of Wonder: Nate Mink's entire piece on Simmons' recovery from an ACL tear is a great read.

Twitterfeed: Can't find a twitter :(

Tweets of Wonder: Well this sucks... here's a GIF of a cat doing cat things.

What does Shafer think of him? Not sure, but his HS coach said his speed off the snap is what made Simmons attractive to schools.

Interesting Nuggot O'Interest: Donnie made the Director's Honor Roll in 2013.

Let's get a good look atchya: Here's a video of Donnie right after he committed to Syracuse via MSG.
