"After that I knew I was making the right decision," Kimble said. "I knew Syracuse was the perfect fit for me."
Links of Wonder: During his recruitment, he was promised the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job right off the bat.

I really like our two freshman quarterbacks," Shafer said. "I wouldn't lose sleep if I had to get one ready to be honest with you.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: According to the SU Athletics bio, Kimble isn't just a dual threat QB, he's a highly decorated punter. So there's that backup plan if the whole QB thing doesn't work.
