Get to Know Your Orange Man: #35, DB Kyle Strickland

Let’s learn more about Kyle, shall we?

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Kyle Strickland

Position: Defensive Back

Year: (Redshirt) Junior

Height: 6’0”

Weight: 188

Hometown: Roswell, Ga.

High School: Roswell

2018 stats: Strickland appeared in all 13 games last season. The backup DB was a part of the kickoff coverage squad. He recorded a single tackle in the game against Clemson.

2019 projections: Likely, he’ll remain a solid member of the kickoff squad. Beyond that, I don’t know how much Strickland will be contributing in the defensive backfield.

How’d he get here?: He walked on at Syracuse, without receiving any D1 offers.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Nothing from the recruiting sites.

Money quote: From John’s defensive backs preview last summer. He did, indeed, get involved in special teams at least.

“Similar to several of the other DBs on the team, he’s a former wideout. That’s unlikely to get put to use much in coverage this year, though maybe on the hands team?”

Twitter feed: No Twitter here.

Tweets of wonder: As was indicated throughout spring ball, Strickland was limited and couldn’t participate in much of the action.

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: The trend of Buffalo native Kyle Chandler being his movie spirit animal is continuing. This time with Argo, the Ben Affleck film from 2012 about extracting Americans from a hostage crisis in Iran in 1979.

Interesting nugget o’interest: His cousin is retired NBA player Rod Strickland. Also, his brother Cameron Marshall played baseball for the Davidson from 2014-2017.
