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: Justin Barron
Position: Defensive Back
Weight: 220 lbs
Hometown: Rocky Hill, Conn.
High School: Suffield Academy
2022 stats: Started at rover in 12 of 13 games, making 65 total tackles, five tackles for loss, one sack, one fumble recovery.
2023 projections: Barron will return to his starting rover slot this season for the Orange. With the ability to lock down an opponent’s best receiver, expect Barron to be slotted all over the turf. He’ll gel nicely with a slew of returning defensive backs and should have enough chances to record his first-career interception too.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars across the board.
Money quote: The chemistry between SU’s defensive backs and Barron says they will be more creative with their play calls this season in an interview with syracuse.com.
“You guys are gonna see some stuff that you haven’t really seen from us before, so I’m excited about that.”
