It’s time to start preparing for the upcoming Syracuse Orange football season. We’re going through the roster to take a look at each Syracuse player as we get ready for a critical season for the Orange.
Up next is….
Name: Joe More
Position: Offensive Line
Year: Redshirt Senior
Weight: 302 lbs.
Hometown: Franklin, TN
High school: Christ Presbyterian Academy
Previous college: Richmond
2022 stats: More started 12 games at right tackle for the Richmond Spiders. He had an run blocking grade of 61.6 per PFF.com, which was higher than Dakota Davis (59.8) or Enrique Cruz (59.3) last season.
2023 projections: More was brought in to add experience to the offensive line. He was with the starters this spring, but we have to see what happens during camp. Syracuse is likely going to need him at some point this season.
How’d he get here?: Chose Richmond over offers from Army and Navy
What’d recruiting sites say?: Two stars from 247 and Rivals out of high school.
Money quote: Playing time was an important reason that More chose to come to Syracuse for his final season.
“The biggest factor for my Syracuse decision was a combination of Syracuse lacking depth and experience at offensive line with the departure of Mathew Bergeron and the opportunity to make an immediate impact on a Power Five team,” More said.
