Get To Know Your Orange Man - No. 54 DT Tyler Cross

New, 2 comments

Let's get to know a Syracuse DT competing for playing time this season.

Name: Tyler Cross

Position: Defensive Tackle

Year: Redshirt Freshman

Height: 6'2''

Weight: 285

Hometown: Douglassville, GA

High School: Northview

2015 Stats: He redshirted, so, none.

2016 Projections: Cross is listed behind Chris Slayton currently as number two on the depth chart. But Anthony Giudice behind him saw some playing time last year while Cross redshirted. I'd expect to see him early in the season so the coaching staff gets a handle on his in-game performance and for that to determine his playing time the rest of the season.

How'd He Get Here?: Picked Syracuse over Wake Forest, Georgia State, Central Florida, and Memphis. All those schools roughly near Georgia and he came up to Cuse!

What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: 3-stars across the board.

Money Quote: Where are you getting these very specific statistics, Tyler?

Links of Wonder: Here's Syracuse.com's write up when Cross committed.

Twitterfeed: T_Cross52

Tweets of Wonder:

What Does the Coaching Staff Think of Him?: None of the coaches have commented publicly about Cross.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Tyler seems to be really stylish. He's wearing a bow tie in his roster picture and in his Twitter profile picture he's sporting a sweater over a button down with glasses and watch.

Let's Get a Good Look Atcha: His Hudl highlights have been taken down, so let's take a look at his dance moves instead.
