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: Ike Daniels
Position: Running Back
Weight: 180 lbs
Hometown: Stafford, Va.
High School: Mountain View
2023 projections: Daniels is listed third on Syracuse’s depth chart entering the season, but depending on what happens with LeQuint Allen, he could see increased carries as Juwaun Price’s backup.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars across the board. Rivals and ESPN had him as a top-45 running back in the nation.
Money quote: Daniels might be easy to spot during his Syracuse career if he keeps this promise to not cut his hair.
“I don’t plan on cutting it,” Daniels said. “My dad says I’m like the character Samson.”
