Get To Know Your Orange Man - No. 22, RB Jordan Fredericks

Get to know the 2014 Gatorade New York State Player of the Year.

Name: Jordan Fredericks

Position: Running back

Year: Freshman

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 208

Hometown: Inwood, NY

2014 Stats: The 2014 Gatorade New York State Player of the Year racked up 2,158 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns in his senior season. He did very well.

2015 Projections: Fredericks is technically fourth on the RB depth chart right now but he's going to go head-to-head with Dontae Strickland for playing time behind Devante McFarlane and George Morris II. Stranger things have happened than a freshman RB getting significant carries.

How'd He Get Here: Fredericks attended the spring game last year and the offer from the Syracuse Orange was "too good to pass up." He also had offers from Temple and Stony Brook.
