Syracuse Football: Orange Adding JUCO Depth - Report

The start of the 2012 Syracuse Football season is quickly approaching, and head coach Doug Marrone and his staff are trying to finalize a roster that can be good and deep enough to win the Big East Conference. With time winding down, it seems the Orange are looking at the junior college ranks to fill holes in their roster.

A source close to the program confirmed Sunday night that Christopher Clark, who played last season at East Los Angeles College, will be on scholarship and with the team when preseason camp opens next month should his application for admission be granted. This morning the source said defensive tackle Davon Walls (6-foot-7, 310 pounds) is in the same situation as Clark.

Clark is a 6-foot-0, 175-pound wide receiver who, according to Syracuse Post-Standard writer Dave Rahme, was used as a deep threat. Meanwhile, Walls has a massive 6-foot-7, 310-pound frame and is shown below in the YouTube video.
