Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Jason Emerich

Position: Center

Year: RS Junior

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 286

Hometown: New Ringgold, PA

2014 Stats: Emerich saw action in five games on the offensive line and special teams, though he did start against Wake Forest when starter John Miller went down with an injury.

2015 Projections: Emerich is listed as the No. 2 center on the depth chart behind Rob Trudo. Trudo will almost certainly maintain his spot so Emerich will see opportunities when called upon and likely on special teams.

How'd He Get Here: Emerich chose Syracuse over Akron, Buffalo, UConn, Temple, and UCF because of the family atmosphere and quality of the coaches and players.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Two and three stars, from Rivals and Scout, respectively.

Money Quote: "The guys are helping me a lot and Coach Adkins is helping me a lot with everything, just making sure I'm up to speed," Emerich said. "They're coaching me up real well. I really like it."

Links Of Wonder: The junior sport management and physical education and coaching major is racking up the academic accolades.
