Get to Know Your Orange Man #33, LB Ryan Dolan

Time to meet one of the new linebackers!

North Carolina v Syracuse

Name: Ryan Dolan

Position: Linebacker

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’0”

Weight: 230 lbs.

Hometown: Novato, Calif.

High School: Marin Catholic

2019 stats: None at the college level, as he was still in high school.

2020 projections: Interestingly, it seems Dolan was recruited as a fullback. However, he’s listed at linebacker and will most likely redshirt this season to get more familiar with the position at the D1 level.

How’d he get here?: The California product was looking for a preferred walk-on spot at either Iowa or ‘Cuse, and felt the Orange were the best fit.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Nothing, so they’ll regret that eventually.

Money quote: Dolan was interviewed by his local news station to talk about playing sports this fall.

“It’s definitely hurting some ways but I am going to have to make the best of it. But the main thing they told me coming in was to be in shape, so I guess I don’t need anyone else for that. I just got to find ways to get my heart rate up and doing cardio and things like that.”

Tweets of wonder: Here’s that commitment post with the fancy new roof that’s still in progress.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: IT Chapter 2 stars Xavier Dolan in a follow up to the successful movie adaption of Steven King’s best selling horror novel.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Wanting to stay close to family doesn’t make sense for a California kid at ‘Cuse, unless you have 4 aunts and uncles in the New York/New Jersey area.

Let’s get a look at ya: High school highlights time!
