Syracuse Football: Get to Know Your Orange Man - #43 Franklin Santos

The Get To Know freight train is back in gear as we run down the transfers and walk-ons...

Name: Franklin Santos

Position: Cornerback

Year: Sophomore

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 175

Hometown: Providence, RI

High School: Classical High School

2011 Stats: N/A

2012 Projections: Santos is here to kick some ass and chew bubble gum during practice. He's way down on the depth chart and his best bet is special teams. But walk-ons have been able to make an impact in recent years for the Orange, so, you never know...

How'd He Get Here?: Santos attended Cushing Academy after high school and seems to have parlayed his way into a walk-on role on the SU team. His speed must have impressed the SU coaches as he was a track star in high school and at Cushing.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing, though Scout was kind enough to give him a page.

Money Quote: Nothing I've been able to find.

Links of Wonder: He's on Twitter but he hasn't tweeted since 2009. So...he might not be using it much.

What Doug Marrone Thinks: What do you think?

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Santos was a track star in high school and at Cushing, finishing 6th in the Rhode Island Indoor Track and Field Championships in the 55m dash as a junior with a time of 6.68.

Let Us Get a Good Look Atchya: Here are some highlights from Cushing...

A bunch of Santos' friends drove up to Syracuse for the spring game and to see their buddy. He shows up at the 5:47 mark.
