    So then assume it's attack line of Evans Soloman Mariano.

    Mid line of Salcido Lane bomberry/trimbo correct?
    Or unless someone really takes a step up I fail to see Weston or Simmons making it, dark horse or Romano there possibly.

    If Forkin is back on the team I don't see Mariano being moved to attack. SU has more then enough numbers there already and Mariano/Salcido are a formidable duo for any starting mid line.

    Thats good to hear, I feel like Wisnauskas may have been more highly recruited. Have you or any others heard how he has done thus far?

    I believe he is a near lock to red-shirt. He didn't play in the fall scrimmages like Burt so barring major injury issues he will almost surely sit this year out. He showed the ability to be a feeding attackmen in highschool so he could definitely take over that role in the future especially with great scoring attackmen on the horizon in Cook, Berkman, Basil in 2018 and Lauder Dordevic and Seebold next year.

    100% correct on Forkin. All we saw him do was dodge, primarily from behind the cage. He showed flashes for sure, but this notion that he is a feeder is pure conjecture and not based on anything we've seen, at all.

    I don't think he played enough in his one year to get any sort of picture of him. If you go by his HS stats and what he did last year at Nassau he clearly can play a feeder type role. Outside of Wisnauskas who is red-shirting he is easily the most suited for that role on this Syracuse team.

    100% correct, which is why its odd to project him doing something we haven't seen him do at all. Also, he came in as a middie and had 20 assists his senior year (not a lot for a dominant high school player). HS and JUCO stats don't mean a lot at this level. Anything is possible I guess, but let's hold off projecting a guy who has been gone for over a year into a role that it outside what we've seen or even considered before.

    I remember Forkin as a left handed finisher. Put up 5 goals and 1 assist in 2015.

    Great overview per usual, Jeremy. I always look forward to the 1st "Starting Lineup" thread each January. Two things:

    I'm not sure if Sullivan burned his RS in the fall (that is the rule, correct?) but from different things I've read, I'd bet that he projects as a SSDM. Strong, athletic football RB that the staff loves there.

    Also, don't count out RSFrosh Andrew Helmer at either LSM or Close D depending on whether Firman switches to Close. He was widely regarded as the best Defender in NJ his senior year coming from a great Summit program.

    I don't think scrimmages count, but I'm not 100%.

    Really rooting for Helmer, as my wife grew up there and we spent 20+ years there after we were married. Great town.

    I'm not 100% sure - but probably 98% sure fall ball doesn't count re: blowing your RS.

    Scrimmages in the fall count for lax. If a player plays the redshirt is blown unless there is an injury at which point the school can request a medical redshirt.

    You are correct about the redshirt and fall ball. If a player plays innthe fall ball scrimmages the redshirt is blown.

    Spot on about Helmer, left him off by accident. He's going to have a grrst opportunity to earn some PT. I remember him coming in highly regarded. Will be interesting to see if he stands out once camp opens up next week.

    I think your right about potential changes throughout the season.
    Wisnauskas is going to redshirt

    They list him as an attackmen as well, which is not surprising.

    Also looks like a walk on or two has been added.

    Klan is now wearing #77.

    Cole O'Brien and Alec Orazietti have disappeared (unless they're both getting new numbers and SU hasn't updated yet.

    Per Creaserat, Orazietti will not be with the program. No idea on O'Brien but wouldn't be surprised if he left.

    That was Rob Orazietti, the transfer from Lafayette.

    Maybe they both left?

    I would say your probably correct. Orazietti was a grad transfer so he had his degree already maybe he just decided to move on.
