Get to Know Your Orange Man: #54, DL Jatius Geer

Time to meet a South Carolina lineman!

North Carolina v Syracuse

Height: 6’6”

Weight: 255 lbs

Class: Freshman

Hometown: Anderson, SC

High School: Belton-Honea Path

2020 stats: Geer’s season was abbreviated to just 6 games last season, playing defensive line and tight end.

2021 projections: The defensive line is loaded up front with super seniors ready to avenge last season’s less than stellar results. This should result in Geer getting a chance to redshirt, unless catastrophic injuries hit that unit.

How’d he get here?: Geer had offers from Georgia Tech, Kansas State, UCF, Memphis and Temple (among others). but chose to join the Syracuse Orange in July of last year.

What’d recruiting sites say?: 3 stars all around!

Twitter feed: @Jatius1

Tweets of wonder: Geer was named Defensive Lineman of the Year for his county.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: A bit of a stretch, but Ant-Man is a really fun heist movie with Judy Greer playing a solid supporting role. Or watch Archer, because Greer shines in that show as Cheryl/Carol/Charline Tunt.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Geer is now one of 4 South Carolinans on the roster, along with Freshman Kendall Long, Chase Simmons, and Chase Atkinson.

Let’s get a look at ya: HIGH SCHOOL HIGHLIGHT SZN!
