Congratulations young Mr. Gunter on your choice of Syracuse University Football. Now work hard in the Strength and Conditioning Program and learn the defense and be ready in 2020 to step on to the field and help continue Syracuse University Footballs resurgence by taking the ACC by storm. Also great job by the Coaching/Recruiting Staff on identifying the talent and selling the program and education. Go Orange!!!
Part of the appeal here is that he will sit out the 2019 season. There are four senior DE on next years roster. Gunter will be a fourth year player with experience and two season of eligibility remaining in 2020. Great job of roster management by the staff.
I don't get the butt hurt that adults have with people they have never met being able to go to college and play sports where they want to. All sports other than FB, BB (M&W) and baseball have a 1 time waiver transfer. Why not those sports? Why treat some athletes differently.
