Name: Andrew Licciardi
Position: Wide receiver
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.”

Senior WR Andrew Licciardi of East Greenwich High School in Rhode Island commits to play D1 FBS football at Syracuse University in the ACC. Very fast wide receiver with excellent hands. https://t.co/7zY9Y68wS0— Inside The Huddle MA (@IThuddleMA) April 26, 2018
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.
