Name: Eric Dungey

Position: Quarterback

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 202

Hometown: Lake Oswego, Ore.

High School: Lakeridge

2014 Stats: As a senior at Lakeridge, Dungey racked up 2,395 yards rushing and tossed 22 touchdowns. He also ran for 985 yards and 12 scores.

2015 Projections: We won't see Dungey this season, but wait a year and he might be at the center of Syracuse's 2016 quarterback competition. This year, he could redshirt.

How'd He Get Here: Recruited by Tim Lester, Dungey chose Syracuse over Air Force, Harvard, Navy and Yale, among others.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Three stars across the board.

Money Quote: Dungey on Syracuse:

"I went to visit and I just fell in love with it," Dungey said. "I just felt really comfortable there. They have a great plan for the future."

Links of Wonder: SU offensive coordinator Tim Lester said recently that he expects either Dungey or fellow Class of 2015 quarterback Kenterius Womack to switch positions at some point. John Parke, Dungey's high school coach, told syracuse.com in November that he thinks Dungey "could be a Division I safety."

Tweets of Wonder: Looks like the "Sunshine" nickname is going to stick.

What Does Shafer Think of Him: On Dungey and Womack, and the future of the quarterback posiition.

"A lot of that will be dependent on Kenterius (Womack) and Eric Dungey," Shafer said during an interview on Thursday. "If they're what we hope, I think they both have a lot ability."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Dungey is the only player on the Orange's roster from Oregon.
