Early signing period: 2020 OT Garth Barclay signs with Syracuse

Party on Dino! Party on Garth!

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

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 offensive lineman Garth Barclay.

Twitter feed: @GarthBarclay

Hometown: York, Pa.

High School: York Suburban

Position: Offensive Tackle

Height: 6’7”

Weight: 250 lbs.

Commitment date: June 19, 2019

Ratings: Three stars

Other offers: Barclay picked Syracuse over Virginia, Temple, Toledo, Buffalo, and Central Michigan

Dino’s predicted nickname: Dino’s going to call him “Sir Garth of County York” because he’s not as big on Wayne’s World jokes as we are.


Player outlook: Thanks to the experience returning to the Syracuse offensive line next season Barclay will have time to get acclimated to the Orange strength and conditioning program. He certainly has the ideal height and wingspan for the tackle position and will be an interesting prospect to watch develop.
