Get to Know Your Orange Man: #76, OT Qadir White

The freshman offensive lineman should see a redshirt for this season.

NCAA Football: Notre Dame vs Syracuse Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Qadir White

Year: Freshman

Position: Offensive tackle

Height: 6’7”

Weight: 334 lbs.

Hometown: Bronx, N.Y.

High School: Cardinal Hayes

2017 stats: He was a U.S. Army All-American Bowl nominee and helped lead his team to an 8-2 record and a berth in the CHSFL Class AAA semifinals.

2018 projections: Don’t expect much from him this year. I see a redshirt season since he arrived late and there’s also a lot of experience for the Syracuse Orange on the line right now.

How’d he get here?: He committed to Syracuse back in 2017 before his senior season. He chose the Orange over Boston College, Georgia, Miami (Fla.), and Rutgers. He didn’t arrive on campus until early August after he finally finished his summer class.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Four stars from 247sports and three stars from Rivals and ESPN. 247 said he was the 187th-best player in the nation.

Twitterfeed: @QadirWhite (his account is private)

Tweets of wonder: Hallelujah!

What movie would Dino recommend?: The 2004 comedy (?), White Chicks stars the Wayans brothers, Terry Crews, and many others. It’s funny if you have the sense of humor of a 13-year old, but other than that, don’t watch it.

Interesting nugget’o interest: He was a thrower for his high school track and field team.

Let’s get a good look at ya: Here he is working with first team offensive lineman.
