Syracuse Orange free safety Durell Eskridge is one of the top safeties in college football and considered a legit NFL draft talent. We know what he's done on the football field for SU but what most of us don't know is how he got here.

His journey began in one of the roughest parts of the country, the Liberty City neighborhood in Miami. Durell worked hard to make it out, and even though he's now 1,400 miles away at Syracuse, home is never far from his thoughts. The ACC profiled Durell over the weekend. In case you missed the video, watch it below and move Eskridge to the top of your Favorite SU Players list.
