Name: Sean Onwualu

Position: Defensive Back

Year: Junior

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 191

Hometown: Sylmar, Calif.

High School: Granada Hills Charter

2017 Stats: Redshirt Season.

2018 projections: Sean could be headed for some special teams action this season.

How’d he get here: He joined the Syracuse Orange in January 2017 as a walk-on. He actually started his Syracuse academic career in Strasbourg, France and worked as an analyst for Citrus TV before joining the team. Perhaps he can also help with Syracuse’s Quebec recruiting efforts.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Nothing listed

Money Quote: As he recently stated on Twitter, “I want to be @donaldglover when I grow up.” Not a bad aspiration at all.

Twitterfeed: @SeanOnwualu

Tweets of wonder: Bo Jackson and Anze Kopitar are inspired choices. This is the kind of thinking we need to see more often.

What movie would Dino recommend for him: Dino’s going to recommend “Wolf Warrior 2” from actor/director Wu Jing. The story of a loose cannon Chinese soldier who leads his special-ops team became China’s highest-grossing film. Dino wants Sean to become a leader of an effective special teams unit, minus all the loose cannon stuff.

Interesting nugget o’interest: In his senior year of high school, Sean recorded 70 tackles and 12 sacks to go along with 284 receiving yards.
