Name: Mark Petry
Position: Offensive line
Hometown: Hochheim am Main, Germany
High School: Graf-Stauffenberg-Gymnasium
2019 Stats: At Ellsworth Community College, Petry earned honorable mention All-ICCAC honors as a freshman. Not much to go off of other than that.
2020 Projections: Petry is probably a depth piece at tackle while he learns the ropes. That said, coming in during the January window, he has a bit of a jump on the rest of the incoming class. He has a large and relatively lean frame that seems to be what Babers and Cavanaugh are looking for at the tackle spot.
How’d He Get Here?: He played last year at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa. He was a signing day flip this year after previously committing to the Eastern Michigan Eagles. He also held offers from UMass, Chattanooga, Eastern Illinois and Indiana State.
What’d Recruiting Sites Say?: 3-Star recruit according to Rivals. He was also listed as the #34 offensive tackle recruit from the JuCo ranks.
Money Quote: Mark talked to Europe’s Elite, a European football site about his time in the JuCo ranks.
Outside your team, your family (because you are close to all of them, since you all fight for your last chance) it’s you against the world! You just want to win, for the coaches, to get them out of there too, for the community, for accepting you into their small town!

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: Dino has shown himself to be a western fan in the past. We’re going with a modern western in 3:10 to Yuma, from 2007. The film starred Christian Bale, Russel Crowe and also Ben Petry as Bale’s son Mark Evans.
Interesting Nugget O’Interest: Petry also played on the handball team when back in Germany. He also is apparently (along with incoming freshman Max Mang) the first German recruit to play for Syracuse football.
