Name: Shaq Grosvenor
Position: Defensive tackle
Hometown: Linden, N.J.
High School: West Orange
2017 stats: Grosvenor made his Syracuse Orange debut versus Central Connecticut State and appeared in the Central Michigan game. He snagged a tackle in the latter contest. Shaq was injured a bunch for the rest of the season, unfortunately.
2018 projections: The defensive tackle was brought in with the expectation of taking some time to see the field, so I don’t expect to see him shoot up the depth chart at the start of the season. By ACC play, Shaq could have fought his way into the two-deep to get regular playing time.
How’d he get here?: After high school, he went out to the desert to play for Mesa Community College. Arkansas State and Lamar (FCS) showed some interest along with Syracuse.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Nada.
Money quote: From our own Adam Hillman last year:
He’s going to challenge for playing time on the interior line, in all likelihood. The Syracuse Orange need some extra depth there, especially after Steven Clark’s departure.
