Name: Christopher Blazier Williamson

Position: Defensive back

Year: SUA says sophomore but they also said that last year, so...I think he's a Junior.

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 193

Hometown: Washington, DC

High School: St. John's College High School

2011 Stats: N/A

2012 Projections: Williamson isn't listed on the post-spring depth chart so chances are he's looking at special teams duty, if anything.

How'd He Get Here?: Williamson walked on during the 2011 season. He had tried to walk-on as a freshman as well but was told he needed to get stronger and faster. He did.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nada.

Money Quote: "I want this really bad...I'm going to shock my future teammates because they don't want it as bad as I do." - August 2011, just before he made the team.

Links of Wonder: Chris is pretty active on Twitter, where his handle is @Cdub444. He's also not a fan of the Archbold gym bathroom.

What Does Marrone Think: "If I say I treat them the same as the scholarship guys, I retract that statement," Marrone, said. "I would have to say I treat the walk-ons better. I do appreciate what they do, probably more than the scholarship athletes."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Former SU running back Antwon Bailey also came to us from St. John's College High School, which is a complicated name for a high school.

Let Us Get a Good Look Atchya: Williamson is a broadcast journalism major so when he's not playing Syracuse sports, he's reporting on them...
