Get to Know Your Orange Man: #27, WR Andrew Licciardi

The Rhode Island product joins a fleet of young receivers.

NCAA Football: Louisville at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Andrew Licciardi

Position: Wide receiver

Year: Freshman

Height: 5’10”

Weight: 175

Hometown: East Greenwich, R.I.

High School: East Greenwich

2017 stats: Licciardi racked up 82 catches, 1,239 receiving yards and 14 scores, per MaxPreps. Not too shabby.

2018 projections: A freshmen wideout will have enough competition as it is seeing the field this year for the Syracuse Orange, and that’s without being a walk-on. He’ll likely redshirt.

How’d he get here?: Licciardi had offers from schools like Sacred Heart, Rhode Island and Fordham, but opted for SU instead.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Nada.

Money quote: Ringing endorsement from his high school head coach

“The best thing about Andrew is how hard he works. He’s the kind of kid who works hard not only in practice, but on every play in practice. On every rep we ever do, he goes 100 percent.”

Twitter feed: @alicciardi16

Tweets of wonder: Fast? He’s already on-#BRAND.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Feel like Dino likes war films here and there. And 2016’s “Hacksaw Ridge” starred Andrew Garfield in a story about U.S. Army medic Desmond Doss, who won the Medal of Honor without firing a shot in World War II.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Licciardi’s a former (and now current) teammate of backup Syracuse punter/kicker Nolan Cooney.
