Get to Know Your Orange Man: #14, WR Anthony Queeley

New, comment

Hopefully he brings some magic from Orlando to impact Syracuse’s young receiving corps.

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Anthony Queeley

Position: Wide receiver

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 194

Hometown: Orlando, Fla.

High School: Lake Nona

2017 Stats: Put up exactly the type of numbers we’d like to see more of at SU: 77 catches, 1,197 yards and 13 touchdowns.

2018 Projections: The Syracuse Orange have a long list of wide receivers on the roster, but experience is minimal. So if Queeley has a strong showing this offseason, perhaps he can work his way onto the field and log some catches.

How Did He Get Here?: Despite offers from Duke, Minnesota, Rutgers and (national champion) UCF, Queeley decided the Dome was the place to be all the way back in June of last year.

What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: Three stars from everyone.

Money Quote: ItsHappening.gif

“They had a couple of receivers [Amba Etta-Tawo and Ervin Phillips) have almost 100 catches [last year] and the type of offense they run is kind of similar to what we run. It’s a fast-paced offense, no-huddle, hard-working… best fit for me.”

Tweets of Wonder: Dino also made the Disney connection when Queeley signed last December.

What Movie Would Dino Recommend for Him?: Anthony Michael Hall played Jack in “Foxcatcher.” I thought the movie was a bit odd. But if you’re cool with Steve Carell and a prosthetic nose saying weird stuff for over 90 minutes, perhaps it’s the film for you — or Queeley.

Interesting Nugget O’Interest: While former Orange OC Sean Lewis did a lot of the legwork with recruiting, it was Markenzy Pierre who helped convince Queeley to head to CNY. They used to play against one another in high school and were friends, so seeing a familiar face at SU made it an easier move.

Let’s Get a Good Look Atcha: Queeley shows off some of the skills that got him an offer and made him one of the top receivers in Central Florida while down at Lake Nona High School.
