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: Muwaffaq Parkman

Position: Running Back

Year: Freshman

Height: 5’11

Weight: 175 lbs

Hometown: Newark, N.J.

High School: Hillside

2023 projections: Parkman was recruited as an athlete but was playing running back in the spring. He’s likely to see action on special teams as he tries to find a role in the Orange offense.

How’d he get here?: Chose Syracuse over Temple.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars except for Rivals which had him as a two-star.

Money quote: He committed to Syracuse right after his official visit and it was an easy choice for Muwaffaq to make.

“The thing that stuck out the most was the hospitality, and how they treated me and my family,” Parkman said. “Especially the players, they treated me as if I was already one of them. I was excited and very comfortable. They wasn’t faking how they treated us. It’s real love down there.”
