Get To Know Your Orange Man -- #57, OT Omari Palmer

Let's get to know Omari Palmer.

Liz Condo-USA TODAY Sports

NameOmari Palmer

Position: Offensive Tackle

Year: Junior

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 323

Hometown: Coram, N.Y.

High School: Longwood High School

2014 Stats: Palmer started nine games, moving from right guard to right tackle after Ivan Foy suffered multiple leg injuries.

2015 Projections: He enters the season listed as Syracuse's starting right tackle, so expect him to keep that spot and not shift back to guard.

How'd He Get Here?: Palmer was the third player to commit in Syracuse's Class of 2012, and the offer from SU was the first he received.

Scout/Rivals Said: Two stars.

Money Quote: We used it last year, but this quote is too good not to recycle: "I know for a fact that me and my offensive linemen are THE most important part of the offense. If we’re going to score, we have to play, we have to block. They (other positions) might get all of the glory, but in the locker room, within the team and the coaching staff, everyone knows that we are what puts points on the board – what makes the offense click."

Links Of Wonder: It seems like a foregone conclusion that Palmer will start at right tackle to open the 2015 season, unless you ask Scott Shafer.

Twitterfeed: O_Palmer57

Tweets Of Wonder: Palmer's Twitter is locked, unfortunately.

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: Shafer called him athletic in February.

"You put him at center, Nick Robinson and Omari (Palmer) at guards -- they're both athletic -- and then Ivan (Foy) and Moo (Jamar McGloster) outside."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Palmer grew up an Orange fan, seemingly making his decision to come to Syracuse an even easier one.
