Get To Know Your Orange Man - #25, WR Jeremiah Kobena

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

In today's installment, get to know Jeremiah "was a bullfrog" Kobena.

Name: Jeremiah Kobena

Position: Wide Receiver

Year: Senior

Height: 6'0

Weight: 188

Hometown: Harlem, N.Y.

High School: Cardinal Hayes

2013 Stats: It was a tale of two halves for Mr. Kobena. In the first three games of the season, he had receiving 134 yards. In the final ten, he only totaled 73 yards.

2014 Projections: Look, Jeremiah is going to catch a lot of screen passes. Like, a lot, guys.  Deal with it. But he also has the speed to be a formidable deep threat. His 55-yard catch against Penn State last September was the second longest catch of the season. Will he light the ACC on fire? No. But his shiftiness makes a good fit for George McDonald's spread offense. He'll likely be one of Terrel Hunt's main targets and should see his workload - and his numbers - increase.

How'd He Get Here: He had offers from our friends over at Pittsburgh and Rutgers, but smartened up and chose "New York's College Team".

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Two stars from Scout and three from Rivals.

Money Quote: On how Doug Marrone's New York City roots drew him to Syracuse:

"We come from the same place, so we can relate to each other in terms of the city life and what we had to go through."

Links of Wonder: Kobena talks to the Post-Standard about butterflies before his first kickoff return, his sense of humor and his homecoming of sorts to MetLife Stadium.

Bonus Tweet of Wonder:

But hey, at least we held on to lead the nation in late-night food. And in the end, isn't that what really counts?

What Does Scott Shafer OC George McDonald Think of Him: (After Kobena lost some playing time)

"It's a lesson in life. You come to work every day, you get paid. You don't come to work, you don't get paid."

Oof. Tell us how you really feel, George.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Back in high school, Jeremiah had quite the track career. In fact, he completed the 100 yard dash in 10.97 seconds, making him one of the speediest runners in the entire state of New York.
