We’ve officially wrapped up the returning Syracuse Orange football roster, so that means it’s time to examine the transfer players. First up is a former 4-star recruit with four years of eligibility:
Name: Carlos Del Rio-Wilson
Year: Redshirt Freshman
Weight: 232 lbs.
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
High School: Cartersville
2021 stats: Did not appear in any games
2022 projections: With Justin Lamson’s season-ending injury, Carlos could quickly spring himself into the backup role and be ready to go even higher if Garrett Shrader struggles. He will have a short time to catch up with his competition in learning the playbook, but he has the highest ceiling out of this group.
How’d he get here?: Del-Rio Wilson transferred to SU after spending one season at the University of Florida. Before that, he had offers from Florida State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Tennessee, and elsewhere but chose to start things off in the Swamp.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Consensus 4-star prospect
Interesting nugget o’interest: Back in high school, Del Rio competed in the Elite 11 QB camp and placed fifth. You may remember former Syracuse Quarterback Tommy Devito also took part in the event.
