2015 Stats: Lasker redshirted, after seeing action on the Syracuse Orange offensive line in both 2013 and 2014 (including his first start vs. Villanova in 2014).
2016 Projections:Lasker is currently ahead in the battle for the starting left tackle spot and thus listed as first-string.
How'd He Get Here: He was one of many JUCO transfers the Orange brought in for the 2013 season. Then-offensive coordinator George McDonald paid him a visit out in California and sold him on the move out east. He had an offer from SE Louisiana State, and was getting attention from USC and Arizona, but ultimately chose 'Cuse.
What'd Scout/Rivals Say: Unrated.
Links of Wonder:Syracuse.com did a nice write-up about Michael when he first came to Syracuse.
Twitterfeed:@BIGLASK76, although his profile is set to private.
What Does The Coaching Staff Think of Him: Lasker earned the honor of breaking down team practice during the spring, so it seems like the coaching staff and his teammates think highly of him as a leader.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Michael was a member of the Fall 2014 Athletic Director’s Honor Roll.
Let's Get A Good Look Atcha: I wonder if Michael is used to the crazy Syracuse weather now?
