Syracuse football: WR Kenterius Womack will transfer

The QB-turned-WR never really got a chance at SU.

With the regular season over, and recruiting heating up before National Signing Day in February, it’s typical that unexpected roster changes start coming about for programs. The Syracuse Orange saw one of those unexpected roster changes today:

You may recall that Kenterius Womack arrived at Syracuse as a late addition at the quarterback position. But before camp even ended, he was switched over to wide receiver, and received some practice run on the defensive side of the ball. His playing time for the past two seasons was largely confined to special teams, however. He recorded seven tackles there in 2015, but none this past season — though he was still a major contributor to that unit in 2016.

Shuttling between positions so much probably didn’t help convince Womack to remain at SU, though he does remain very upbeat in his statement on Twitter. As Nate Mink points out on Syracuse.com, he’s the third member of the 2015 class to depart after two seasons, joining Trey Dunkelberger and Anthony Giudice.

Between those three roster spots, plus Austin Wilson and Jonathan Burton not returning for their respective fifth seasons, that’s five more roster spots that initially thought for Syracuse that can go toward this 2017 class.

Best of luck to Kenterius in the search for his next stop!
