Hometown: Homestead, FL
High School: South Dade
2013 Stats: Was an All-Dade County selection in 2012 and 2013. As a senior last season, Cordy helped lead South Dade to the Florida Class 8A State Championship. He finished his high school career with 15 interceptions and 180 tackles.
2014 Projections: Cordy is listed third at left cornerback on the depth chart, which might indicate that he will redshirt his freshman season.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Rivals and Scout each give Cordy a two-star rating.
Money Quote: From an interview with South Florida High School Sports:
"The Florida boys got that talent...It’d be great to have all the Miami boys come to Syracuse."
We agree, Antwan, we agree. Next up: Convincing them to trade South Beach for snow.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Cordy was born in Naranja, Florida. Naranja, of course, translates to "orange" in Spanish. No, that is not a coincidence.
