Why Didn't Someone Tell Me We Needed Cornerbacks So Badly

Lots of position jumped out in the spring as red flags for SU football.  Perhaps because there was so much attention of offensive line, kicking and linebacker that we didn't stop to realize that our defensive backfield needed some help.  The other day Doug Marrone brought in California JUCO DB Derek Hines to battle for a spot in the starting line-up.  Apparently he bought California JUCO DB's in bulk...cause he got another one today:

Cornerbacks on the Syracuse University football team apparently will have some more competition when preseason camp commences in August. John Mark Henderson (5-11, 195), a two-year starter at CB for City College of San Francisco, is apparently signing the dotted line with the Orange.

Like Hines, Henderson has three years of eligibility to play two seasons for the Orange (if that makes sense).  The 5'11", 195 corner was recruited by some big schools, including Kansas State, but issues about college credits plagued the process.  I'm guessing he's cleared it up.  I'd read all about it but I don't have access to the article.

Check Henderson out in this video, if you can figure out where he is half the time:
