Get to Know Your Orange Man: #91, DE Zach Morton

Let’s get to know the redshirt freshman defensive lineman

NCAA Football: Boston College at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Zach Morton

Position: Defensive End

Year: (Redshirt) Freshman

Height: 6’4”

Weight: 243

Hometown: Detroit, Mich.

High School: Cass Tech

2017 Stats: N/A, since he redshirted.

2018 projections: Should be a second-team defensive lineman behind Alton Robinson (at least according to the Syracuse Orange’s spring depth chart). Don’t expect much more than maybe a dozen tackles

How’d he get here? Played at Cass Tech for four years and received offers from Cincinnati, Pitt, Iowa State, Toledo, Western Michigan and Bowling Green. Decided to pick Syracuse, however, lucky for us.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stats from everyone

Twitterfeed: @zmorton_

Tweets of wonder: Wouldn’t exactly call this great life advice, but what do I know?.

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him? The 1996 TV movie “Emma,” while nothing ever close to my taste, stars Samantha Morton, so there’s that. It’s based on a Jane Austen novel set in the 19th Century.

Interesting Nugget O’Interest: His father Darryl played college football at Division II Central State University (in Wilberforce, Ohio).

Let’s get a good look at ya: No highlights from Syracuse so here’s some video of him from high school.
