Syracuse Football: RB Signee Jo-El Shaw Heads to JUCO Instead

Unfortunately, not everyone usually qualifies and it looks like Shaw is this year's first academic casualty.

Every year, Syracuse Orange fans look forward to the incoming class of football players to form the new base from which the program can grow. And every year, there's always a couple guys who unfortunately don't make it into camp for one reason or another. The first casualty of the 2016 NLI signees is officially in as we learn RB Jo-El Shaw reportedly did not qualify academically and will head to Lackawanna College to play JUCO ball.

Nate Mink added that Shaw reportedly didn't qualify, though that's not yet confirmed.

The 6'1", 210-pound RB chose SU over Western Michigan and was rated three stars across the board. Jo-El recently took part in the Big 33 Classic as well.

Good luck, Jo-El. Someone else will eventually get to use all the Superman puns we were looking forward to using.
