Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Rony-Andre Charles

Position: Defensive Lineman

Year: Junior

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 296

Hometown: Medford, Massachusetts

High School: St. Clement

2013 Stats: A newly-added walk-on, Charles did not play football in 2013, or at least not as far as we can tell.

2014 Projections: It's hard to believe Charles will play much this season, if at all.

How'd He Get Here: It was announced on Saturday that Charles, who played previously at St. Clement High School, had been added to the Syracuse roster as a walk-on. According to his Facebook, he last attended MassBay Community College, which does not have a football team.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Wasn't recruited.

Money Quote: The life of a walk-on: I couldn't find a single quote from Charles.

Link Of Wonder: Charles joined two other walk-ons, offensive linemen Taylor Hindy and Keaton Darney, that were also welcomed to the team this week.

Twitter Feed: @RonRegardless (I think that's his Twitter.)

Tweet Of Wonder: I feel your pain, Rony. As a contact wearer, believe me when I say that this is the WORST.

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: Shafer hasn't commented publicly on the newest walk-ons.

Interesting Nugget O' Interest: Charles is one of only two Orange -- the other being fullback Clay Cleveland -- from Massachusetts. He's also studying economics at Syracuse. Yeah, that's the best I've got.
