New, 1 comment

The Florida product is ready to see the field.

Name: Jason Muñoz

Position: Defensive End

Year: (Redshirt) Freshman

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 241 lbs.

Hometown: Hollywood, Fla.

High School: St. Thomas Aquinas

2019 stats: None, as he took his redshirt

2020 projections: Muñoz dropped about 10 pounds from when he came into the program, and could very well become a ‘tweener in the new 3-3-5 system the Syracuse Orange are expected to implement. While he may not see much action along the line in 2020, there’s a good chance he will get to compete for time on special teams.

How’d he get here?: Originally signed his letter of intent with Miami, however he was granted a release when Mark Richt stepped down as head coach. From there, he took a Syracuse visit and committed to the Orange with interest from Missouri, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Louisville and more.

What’d recruiting sites say?: A consensus 3-star recruit, Muñoz was the no. 56 strong-side defensive end this cycle by 247Sports.com’s composite rankings.

Money quote: Nick Monroe was very happy to land the defensive lineman in the 2019 signing video announcing Muñoz’s arrival to campus.

We got ourselves a really tough nosed, hard core defensive lineman who creates a new line of scrimmage ever snap he takes.

Tweets of wonder: If you were wondering about some more specifics as to how Muñoz got to Syracuse, this provides at least a little more context.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: He’s a big Miami kid who’s going to make his second choice the best choice? I’m going to say Dino’s hitting him with the DVD of Bad Boys II.

Interesting nugget o’interest: STA is a Miami powerhouse, churning out NFLers like Michael Irvin and Giovanni Bernard. It’s no wonder Miami went in on him early.
