Name: Cam Jonas
Position: Defensive Back
Year: (Redshirt) Freshman
Hometown: West Palm Beach, Fla.
High School: Dwyer
2018 Stats: Redshirt season, but Jonas did travel for the Western Michigan, Notre Dame and Boston College games.
2019 projections: Jonas made a preseason depth chart in July before last season, but the Oranges’ most recent chart has him nowhere to be seen. He’ll most likely be set for a reserve/depth role this upcoming season.
How’d he get here?: Jonas turned down offers from 15 other schools — including in-state programs like Miami and Florida State — and signed with the Orange in December of 2017.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars from all recruiting sites.
Money Quote: “When he hits you, he drops the hammer....he’s never the nail”- Syracuse assistant Nick Monroe.
Tweets of wonder: His Twitter is 99% retweets, so we’re pulling from way back since Jonas probably feels the same way heading into this year.
What movie would Dino recommend for him: Jonas’s hard-hitting reputation garners a recommendation to watch “Pain and Gain.” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mark Whalberg are shredded for this film and dole out their fair share of knockout hits.
Interesting nugget o’interest: Jonas was ESPN’s 29th-best safety in the 2018 class, despite missing his senior season with an ACL injury.
