Name: Joe Nassib
Year: (Redshirt) Senior
Hometown: Newton Square, Pa.
High School: The Haverford School
2013 Stats: Played in 10 games, mostly on special teams, but did not record any statistics.
2014 Projections: Joe's mostly hung around on special teams his entire career, but that could change in 2014. Syracuse has very little in terms of proven commodities at corner, so he could be inserted there. He won't start, of course, but that won't preclude him from seeing a moderate amount of snaps at the position just the same.
How'd He Get Here: He walked on because his cousin (whom you may be familiar with) also went to Syracuse and family should stick together when possible.
What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Nada.
Money Quote: He's not wrong...

Tweets Of Wonder: Joe's not the best singer, per "noted talent scout" Clay Cleveland:
Aparrently according to @ClaycCleveland I need to see a vocal coach...he doesn't know talent— joey nassib (@jnasty_19) June 3, 2014
What Does Shafer Think Of Him: This should surprise no one:
"I love the hell out of Joey."
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Nassib has the type of intelligence that can't be described by other members of our football team (from Ivan Foy):
"He’s smart. I don’t know how smart, but he is very, very smart. He might be a little too smart for me. I can’t keep up with him."
