Get To Know Your Orange Man - #54, DT Tyler Cross

Get to know the freshman defensive tackle from Georgia.

Name: Tyler Cross

Position: Defensive Tackle

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 283

Hometown: Douglassville, GA

High School: Northview High School

2014 Stats: Recorded 31 tackles in his senior year of high school, where he was a two-year captain.

2015 Projections: Cross sits behind John Raymon and Chris Slayton at DT, so seeing the field will be trying for him this year.

How'd He Get Here?: Cross picked Syracuse over Georgia State, Central Florida, Memphis and Wake Forrest. Wake actually pursued him after he committed to Syracuse, but he decided it was best to be an Orange over a Demon Deacon. We don't blame him.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: Three stars.

Links Of Wonder: Cross staying with Syracuse over Wake's pursuit.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: You can't tell me he doesn't look like Kenan from Kenan and Kel.
