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: Tommy Porter
Position: Defensive Back
Year: Redshirt Sophomore
Weight: 192 lbs
Hometown: Pasadena, CA
High School/Previous College: Flintridge Prep
2022 stats: Missed last season due to injury.
2023 projections: The best opportunity for Porter to see the field would be on special teams. He’s more likely to serve as a scout team player but he’s got a strong athletic background which is useful in that role.
How’d he get here?: Chose to walk on at Syracuse.
What’d recruiting sites say?: No ratings
Money quote: Even back in his early high school days, Porter showed the commitment it takes to earn a spot on a D1 roster.
“I expect more out of myself this season after having a bit of a down year last year,” Porter said. “I did a lot of work in the offseason to get better in different areas and it’s already paying off.”
