Get To Know Your Orange Man - #75 OT Denzel Ward

Ward's "first day of college" outfit. - Via twitter

This freshman is looking forward to learning the ropes behind veteran, Sean Hickey.

Name: Denzel Ward

Position: Offensive tackle

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'8"

Weight: 363

Hometown: Chicago, IL

High School: Neal F. Simeon

2013 Stats: Not a lot to find. As a senior in high school, and a captain, he led his team to the 2013 City Championships, though.

2014 Projections: He's expected to redshirt, learn a lot from fifth-year left tackle, Sean Hickey, and then "be that guy sophomore year" once Hickey moves on.

How'd He Get Here: After offers from Ohio State, Oklahoma, UCLA, and more, he committed to Purdue. He re-opened his recruiting, though, and ultimately picked Syracuse over USF.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Three stars from Rivals, Scout, 247 Sports, and ESPN.

Money Quote: On SU after his official visit:

It's just a football program on rise.

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: How about something from running backs coach DeAndre Smith?

When you have depth at certain positions, you can lean more toward a guy you can develop. Denzel is a kid that has the chance to be a really good player. You work them and you develop them.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Ward only started playing organized football during his junior year in high school. Whoa.

Let's Get A Good Look Atcha:
