Get to Know Your Orange Man: #39, DB Clay Masters

He has a chance to climb the depth chart two years after walking on.

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Boston College Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

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: Clay Masters

Position: Defensive Back

Year: Redshirt Sophomore

Height: 5’11”’

Weight: 187 lbs.

Hometown: West Linn, OR

High School: West Linn

2022 stats: Did not appear in any games for SU

2023 projections: After spending two seasons on the scout team, Clay might have a shot at cracking the two-deep this fall. Emily Leiker over at dotcom has him as a second-string corner in her projected defensive depth chart. He had a few nice plays in camp but still has some work to do before getting a call for serious playing time.

How’d he get here?: Joined the Orange as a PWO in May 2021.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Two stars from 247Sports.
