College Football News Preview 2020: Top Syracuse Orange Players
Best Syracuse Orange Offensive Player
QB Tommy DeVito, Jr.
Call this a wee bit more hopeful than anything else. The 6-2, 206-pounder was supposed to be a step up at the position after coming in as a strong recruit and waiting for his turn to take over. Despite getting beaten up, battered and bruised, he still threw for 2,360 yards and 19 touchdowns with five picks and ran for two scores. He’s careful with the ball and doesn’t make a ton of mistake – now he needs time to work.

Best Syracuse Orange Defensive Player
S Andre Cisco, Sr.
The 6-0, 206-pounder followed up his amazing seven-interception, 60-tackle debut with an equally fabulous sophomore campaign. He got a little bit bigger and became more of a hitter with 65 stops to go along with five picks. The instincts and ball skills are off-the-charts, breaking up 16 passes in his first two years. Now he’s the unquestioned star of what should be a good-enough secondary.
