Name: Anthony Queeley
Position: Wide receiver
Weight: 200 lbs.
Class: (Redshirt) Sophomore
Hometown: Orlando, Fla.
High School: Lake Nona
2020 stats: In his first real action on the offensive side of the ball, Queeley put in some solid work for the Syracuse Orange. He caught 37 passes for 378 yards and two touchdowns — which may not jump off the page until you remember what SU’s offense looked like last year.
2021 projections: In all likelihood, Queeley’s the top receiver for Syracuse on the outside, with Taj Harris moving to the slot. So if the passing game looks a little more reliable in 2021, then he should theoretically have a lot more to do.
How’d he get here?: After collecting quite a few offers from the likes of Duke, Minnesota, Rutgers, UCF, Troy, Tulane and others, he opted to head north and play for the Orange.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Everyone was sensible and gave Anthony a three-star rating.
Money quote: It’s always encouraging to hear a quote like this from your head coach.
“He’s one of those guys that, when you throw the ball to him, he normally catches it. You just don’t see him drop a lot of footballs, whether it’s in practice or in the games. He’s someone that you can really depend on.”

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: It’s not too long ago, so Queeley may have caught it the first time around. But Anthony Ramos appeared as Ramon in 2018’s A Star is Born remake featuring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga — something you’re probably aware of given how many times you had to hear that damn song.
Interesting nugget o’interest: That D.O. piece linked above details how Queeley has been a fixture in the weight room since high school, and how that helped him get on so many radars en route to college.
Let’s get a look at ya: If you get your own ACC highlight, you did something well.
