Name: Ed Hendrix
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: Redshirt Freshman
Weight: 208 pounds
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
High School: H.D. Woodson
2018 stats: Redshirt season after injuring his knee during preseason camp.
2019 projections: The Orange are pretty deep at the receiver position, and Hendrix wasn’t one of the seven wideouts listed on the 2019 preseason depth chart that was released on July 16 — at least in part due to another injury sustained this spring. He could sneak his way up the list before Aug. 31 if he’s healthy, but a reserve role gives him another year to develop and make a strong impact when upperclassmen graduate out.
How’d he get here?: Hendrix elected to head to Central New York despite holding offers from Michigan State, Wisconsin, N.C. State, Louisville, Pitt and Boston College.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Hendrix earned a four-star rating from ESPN and three stars from all other sites.
Money quote: Here’s Hendrix on why he chose ‘Cuse over his laundry list of options.
“It’s been a long recruitment but Cuse showed me the most love and I know I will fit very well in their system.”
