Get To Know Your Orange Man - #36, WR Macauley Hill

Macauley Hill is looking to come back from a torn ACL.

Name: Macauley Hill

Position: Wide Receiver

Year: Junior

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 205

Hometown: Port Huron, MI

High School: Port Huron Northern

2012 Stats: Hill didn't see any action last season due to a torn ACL.

2013 Projections: Hard to say what, if any. Hill redshirted as a freshman and is coming off a season-ending-before-it-even-started injury as a sophomore. The wideout pool is deep and there's only so many snaps to go around, especially for a walk-on.

How'd He Get Here?: Hill had a scholarship to D-2 Northwood University, but decided to give D-1 a shot instead. A lifelong Syracuse fan, Hill jumped at the chance to walk-on at SU when it was offered and he has the chance to earn a scholarship at some point.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nada.

Money Quote: "I always wanted to play for Syracuse and once the option became available recently I jumped at it...It's amazing and I'm excited for the challenging opportunity ahead."

Tweets of Wonder: Hill's putting on the muscle (we hope it's muscle)...

What Does Shafer Think: The usual hardnosed thoughts.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Hill initially started playing football as the kicker for Port Huron Northern in his sophomore year before transitioning to running back as a junior before shifting to wide receiver as a senior, where he scored 13 touchdowns.
