Get To Know Your Orange Man -- #61, OG Samuel Clausman

We continue getting to know the freshmen with offensive lineman Samuel Clausman.

Samuel Clausman

Name: Samuel Clausman

Position: Offensive Guard

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 317

Hometown: Pembroke Pines, Fla.

High School: St. Thomas Aquinas

2014 Stats: Clausman made the Florida Class 7A All-State First Team.

2015 Projections: He's third on the depth chart at left guard, so we're probably not seeing much of Clausman in 2015.

How'd He Get Here: Clausman was recruited by George McDonald. After McDonald left Syracuse for NC State, Clausman stayed committed to SU.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Two stars from Rivals, three from scout.

Money Quote: Despite it seeming unlikely, Clausman expects -- or at least expected when he committed -- to have a chance at playing in 2015.

"I was like, 'Woah, I will be playing my freshman year of college, possibly starting.' I just have to work hard for it."

Links of Wonder: Read up on Clausman and high school teammate Colin Byrne deciding to commit to SU together.

Tweets of Wonder:

What Does Shafer McDonald Think of Him: McDonald's gone now, but Clausman said the coach was pretty thrilled about the big guy's commitment.

"I think his exact words were, 'Hang on, I think I just passed out.'"

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: When he was a junior, Clausman threw discus for his high school's state champion track & field team.
