We're getting close to end of this, time for more Orange Men! Know them! It's your job!

Name: Adrian Flemming

Number: 22

Position: Wide Receiver

Year: Junior

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 196

Hometown: Ashburn, VA

High School: Broad Run

2011 Highlights: Flemming played in all 12 games this season as a special teams guy and has yet to rack up any stats for the Orange yet.

2012 Projections: Based on the post spring depth chart, Flemming is the 3rd wideout backing up Marcus Sales, but once Alec Lemon comes back from injury that should change to the 4th man. Expect him to finally snag a few catches in the random first down shotgun plays that never come on third and long.

How'd he get here? The same way a lot of the team got here: One day camp, impress, fall in love with Cuse, get scholarship. He chose the Orange over Temple, Ohio U and Marshall.

What did Scouts/Rivals say? Scout does what they do whenever they see a Syracuse recruit: 2 stars. (Just kidding but not really.) Rivals saw the size and athleticism of Flemming enough to give 3.

Money Quote: On how his high school offense worked:

"They just throw me the deep ball. I'm not complaining. When the running game doesn't work, they just throw it to me."

We shall see if that strategy works at 'Cuse.

Links O' Wonder: Here is a nice scouting report from last fall telling us that Flemming has hands of glue.

What does Marrone think? I'm sure we'll find out if Flemming has a big game this season. He should at some point soon.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: All he does is win. Between 2008 and 2009, his high school team went 28-0 and won two Virginia State Championships.

Let's Get a Good Look Atchya: Looks like we have ourselves David Tyree 2.0 now.
