Name: Tyrone Perkins
Position: Running Back
Weight: 197 lbs.
Hometown: Glen Head, N.Y.
High School: Friends Academy
2016 Stats: He hasn’t done anything meaningful for the Syracuse Orange so far. He was a hybrid back his freshman year and last year switched to inside receiver but didn’t see the field.
2017 Projections: He’ll be a part of some light competition for the second running back in the depth chart. Dontae Strickland will likely hold down the number one spot, and Perkins will have to compete with Moe Neal for number two. In the preseason depth chart, Neal had the spot.
How'd He Get Here?: He bit the first hook. Syracuse gave him an offer and he took it as the first recruit in the class of 2015. He tore his ACL his senior year of high school, but the scholarship stayed.
What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: What’s new? Three stars of course.
Tweets of Wonder: He tweets once in a very blue moon.

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: The Perks of Being A Wallflower sounds right. A young freshman is taken under the wings of a couple of seniors to figure himself out. Perkins is getting there! (Yeah, this one was tough... PERKS though).
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: He can ball too. He was a leading man for his high school hoops team.
Let’s Get a Good Look Atcha: Since he hasn’t seen the turf in the dome much... here is some high school film.
