Get To Know Your Orange Man - #85 WR Jamal Custis

Custis might be the real deal, the question is whether or not he'll play this season.


Name: Jamal Custis

Position: Wide Receiver

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'6"

Weight: 215

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

High School: Neumann-Goretti

2013 Stats: Custis helped lead Neumann-Goretti to the Philadelphia Catholic League AA Division Championship as a junior and was a three-time All-Philadelphia Catholic AA Division League selection. Custis finished his career with 84 catches for 1,790 yards and 23 TDs.

2014 Projections: Let's not get ahead of ourselves here but SU RB Coach DeAndre Smith just said Custis "is as good as I've ever seen a kid look as a freshman. Oh my goodness, he's unbelievable."

How'd He Get Here?: Syracuse beat out UConn, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, UCF, Virginia and a few others for his services.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Scout - 3*, Rivals - 3*, 247 - 3*, ESPN - 3*

Money Quote: "It is interesting that my second sport is the one I’ll go to college for." - Custis

What Does Scott Shafer Think Of Him"He told me he wanted to just cause matchup problems," Custis said here last week, one day after head coach Scott Shafer, wide receivers coach Rob Moore and McDonald visited with the Class of 2014 verbal commitment.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: You remember Nuemann-Goretti as the high school that brought us Scoop Jardine and Rick Jackson. No word on Jamal's cousin-ness.
