Get to Know Your Orange Man: #20, S Cam Jonas

“Get to know” one of many Syracuse defensive backs ready to jump in and contribute.

NCAA Football: Louisville at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Cam Jonas

Position: Defensive Back

Year: (Redshirt) Freshman

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 210

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.

Twitterfeed: @cameron_jonas9

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.
