Welcome to college football’s early signing period! Despite the disappointment on the field this fall the Syracuse Orange are hoping to add key components to get back to bowl eligibility in 2020. As each player signs, we’ll be posting profiles here on TNIAAM. Next up is safety Ben Labrosse.
Twitter feed: @benlabrosse
Hometown: Montreal, Que.
High School: Varnier College
Weight: 200 lbs.
Commitment date: July 27, 2019
Ratings: Three stars from 247.
Other offers: Labrosse picked Syracuse over Buffalo, Central Michigan and Massachusetts
Dino’s predicted nickname: “Le Patron” which of course is French for The Boss
Player outlook: Syracuse is losing a lot of secondary depth and there will be opportunities for someone with Labrosse’s size to find the field especially on special teams. We’ll see if he’s able to push for a spot on the depth chart. He adds to the talent that Dino Babers has been able to bring from Canada and we’ll see how quickly he’ll make the transition to the level of play in the ACC.
