We’re hitting the 70s and that means the focus goes to some of the bigger players on the Syracuse Orange roster
Name: Tyler Magnuson
Position: Offensive line
Weight: 286 lbs
Class: Redshirt Freshman
Hometown: Plymouth, MN
High School: Wayzata
2021 stats: Steve won his bet that Tyler would redshirt his first season in Syracuse.
2022 projections: After spring practice it appears that Tyler is firmly in the mix to be a backup at tackle. He’ll probably be on the special teams blocking units and could see time in short-yardage situations. Talk form the spring focused around Tyler’s skills so as he gets stronger he could find himself emerging as a starter in 2023.
How’d he get here?: He had an offer from Duke and Arizona as well as Army and Air Force so obviously academics were a strong suit in high school.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars from 247
