Get to Know Your Orange Man: #20, S Cam Jonas

His name is Jonas, and he’s carrying the wheel.

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Cam Jonas

Position: Defensive Back

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 209

Hometown: West Palm Beach, Fla.

High School: Dwyer

2017 Stats: Missed his senior season due to a torn ACL.

2018 projections: Depending upon his recovery from the injury we could see Cam in the secondary as the season progresses. The new redshirt rule could allow the staff to give him a look without having to rush his recovery. He’s currently listed on the depth chart, however.

How’d he get here: Cam chose to join the Syracuse Orange over offers from 15 other schools including Florida State, Miami, Virginia Tech, Auburn and NC State. He signed with the Orange in December and enrolled in January.

What’d recruiting sites say?: 3 stars across the board.

Tweets of wonder: Neither can we, Cam. Neither can we.

What movie would Dino recommend for him: A hard-hitting defensive back is going to get “The Terminator” as Dino’s recommendation. The James Cameron classic is going to be a perfect reminder of the intense focus needed to neutralize your opponent.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Jonas’s high school (Dwyer) was established in 1991 and includes Jacoby Brissett and Nick O’Leary among their notable alumni
