Name: Ed Hendrix
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: (Redshirt) Sophomore
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
High School: H.D. Woodson
2019 stats: Unfortunately missed all of last season with an injury.
2020 projections: With luck, we finally get to see Hendrix on the field for the Syracuse Orange. Back in March, he was listed as a second-string outside receiver behind Cameron Jordan. If he’s healthy, he may very well be able to claim the starting spot too (or at the very least, be a significant contributor).
How’d he get here?: Ed was in demand, with offers from the likes of Boston College, Michigan State, Louisville, Pitt, NC State, Wisconsin and others. Not a bad list.
What’d recruiting sites say?: ESPN said four stars, while everyone else said three. We know which one we’re trusting.
Money quote: Bummer of a quote from Dino Babers after Hendrix’s most recent injury last year.
“We’re still waiting. We’re getting medical opinions on it. ... We’ve got to see. Right now he’s just not right and we’re hoping and wishing the best for him.”

Tweets of wonder: In case you were curious about how Ed eats crab, well, here you go.
What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Dino has daughters, so it seems like he had to — whether he wanted to or not — watch 1998’s “The Parent Trap” with Lindsay Lohan. We bring this up because Elaine Hendrix plays Meredith Blake in said film.
Interesting nugget o’interest: H.D. Woodson has graduated quite a few interesting alums, and one of those is Byron Leftwich. As you know, he was a star quarterback at Marshall, then the Jacksonville Jaguars before a host of other NFL teams. He won a Super Bowl with the Steelers, and floated around for a bit after then went into coaching. Since his playing days, he’s worked his way up to the Buccaneers’ OC.
Let’s get a look at ya: High school highlights, as you’d expect (these, courtesy of national signing day video clips for SU).
