National Signing Day 2013: Arciniega Fills Void at Linebacker

If I had to bet on one player from this class stepping into a large role right away, it is probably California JuCo linebacker Luke Arciniega. The 6'3", 240 pounder gives the linebacker corps some much needed size.

Stat Me: 87 tackles (52 solo), 5.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries this season at Sierra College.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 2*, Rivals - 3*, 247 - 3*, ESPN - 3*

Who's Crying?: Memphis...but when isn't Memphis football crying?

Money Quote: From Syracuse.com

"They (coaches) said they’re looking for me to come in and make a difference," Arciniega said of possibly earning a job as the next SU middle linebacker. "They said the opportunity is there."

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: Greg Adkins took the money and ran.

Fun Fact: More fun for us than it is an interesting anecdote. Luke currently has two seasons to play two, but there's a chance he can appeal the NCAA for an injury waiver and pick up a third year.
