Get To Know Your Orange Man - #52 Eric Crume

Shall we continue our look at this year's Syracuse Football team? Sure, why not.

Name: Eric Crume

Position: Defensive Tackle

Year: Junior

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 320

Hometown: Detroit, MI

High School: Detroit Central

2012 Stats: He played in 12 games, and had his first career start against Cincinnati. Being a starter agreed with him - he had three tackles, and forced and recovered a fumble during that game. By the end of the season, he racked up a total of fifteen tackles, eleven of which were unassisted.

2013 Projections: After finally recovering from the shoulder surgery he had during the off-season, there's no reason to think he won't keep his starting spot next to Jay Bromley.

How'd He Get Here?: The guys from Iowa, Michigan, and Michigan State didn't wish him a happy birthday, apparently.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Two stars from both of them.

Money Quote:

Thanks, Twitter.

Links of Wonder: If you've ever wondered whether someone can pray while DMX blasts through their ears, the answer is yes.

What Does Shafer Think: Well, he saw flashes of really good things when Crume was a freshman, and now he's a starter, so I imagine Shafer thinks Crume's doing just fine.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: His middle name is Armani. True story.

Let Us Get a Good Look Atchya:

Alright, so this was pre-'Cuse, but I don't care. He benches two of me. I put it in here.

Beast. Mode.
