Name: Jacob Green
Position: Tight End
Hometown: Seattle, WA
High School: Seattle Prep
2014 Stats: Green didn't play in any games. Two years ago he saw action in two games, catching one pass for four yards against Wagner.
2015 Projections: Jacob wasn't on the post-spring depth chart (though to be fair only two TEs were). Still, it's likely he's looking at special teams for the most part.
How'd He Get Here?: Green walked on in 2012, though no one's ever really delved into how a Seattle guy ends up at Syracuse. So we can just assume he threw a dart at a map and here he is. The only other important question is, how many eggs has he eaten from Beth's Cafe?
Scout/Rivals Said: No one said much about the All-Metro selection who played both tight end and defensive end in high school.
Money Quote: "Shower speakers have gotta be one of the best things ever invented."
Links Of Wonder: George McDonald, Scott Shafer pleased with progress from Syracuse football's young tight ends
