Name: James Cherry

Position: Wide receiver

Year: Redshirt freshman

Height: 5’9”

Weight: 170

Hometown: Philadelphia, Pa.

High School: St. Joseph’s Prep

2018 stats: Redshirt season

2019 projections: Despite losing Jamal Custis this offseason, there isn’t much room for Cherry to make an impact this upcoming season.

How’d he get here?: Cherry spurned the Robert Morris Colonials to join Syracuse in the fall of 2018 after building and developing a positive relationship with offensive coordinator Mike Lynch.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Nothing

Money Quote: Cherry on his decision to switch over to ‘Cuse:

“Several factors played in my decision, but it was based largely on the prestige and academic reputation of Syracuse, the broad resources of the alumni base, and finally, me wanting to explore an opportunity to challenge myself on a different level of football and competition.”

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Coach Babers will go with the 2000 American slasher comedy Cherry Falls.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Although it didn’t end up happening because of his decision not to go to Robert Morris, he would’ve had the chance to play with two high school teammates on that roster.
