Name: John Sweetwood
Position: Defensive Back
Year: (Redshirt) Freshman
Hometown: Montclair, N.J.

2018 Stats: Redshirt season
2019 Projections: The defensive backfield is pretty crowded so it seems like John will see scout team duty this season for the Syracuse Orange
How Did He Get Here?: His father Howard also attended Syracuse so it seems like that influenced the decision to attend.
What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: No ratings
Money Quote: From a high school petition to implement spring dress code early, John had this to add and as someone who dealt with twelve years of school dress code I nod in agreement.
“I hate dress code.”
