Name: Jamar McGloster
Hometown: Hillside, N.J.
High School: Saint Anthony
2015 Stats: McGloster played some games at right tackle for the Syracuse Orange last season, including the opener against Rhode Island where he saw the most time.
2016 Projections: Jamar's your odds-on starter at right tackle at the moment. In any case, you'll be hearing his name called a bunch this season.
How'd He Get Here: Teams may have been scared off by some initial SAT issues, but once those were resolved, Syracuse swooped in with an offer for the New Jersey product.
What'd Scout/Rivals Say: Unrated.
Money Quote: From (then) newly-minted St. Anthony coach Ed Stinson, who had plenty to say about McGloster's surprising rise late in the recruiting process back in 2013:
"There didn't appear that there was any way a kid at this point could get a scholarship. The combination of an availability of a scholarship, him getting himself academically qualified and then the circumstance of being introduced to these people. I had never coached him, but to me he passed the eye test of being a college football prospect. The rest of it just fell into place circumstantially. Everything connected."
Links of Wonder: Last year, Matt Schneidman wrote up a whole piece in the Daily Orange about how Jamar was emphasizing technique.
Tweets of Wonder: McGloster uses his Twitter feed for some words of inspiration now and again.
