SU’s Spring Game MVPs Were Exactly Who You Wanted

There is more hype around Syracuse football right now than there has been in a very long time. A lot of questions remain about the freshmen and the impact they can make right away. Can Fran Brown actually coach in the game? There are a bunch of unknowns, but one thing that SU fans do know is the graduate transfers who have experience. The two who are arguably most important are DL Fadil Diggs from Texas A&M and WR Zeed Haynes from Georgia.

Yes, there are a lot of important returners to the Orange. But in his first year Brown will need to lean on the players who have played at top programs. Diggs’s experience at Texas A&M will be paramount for the ‘Cuse. He started all 12 games last year for the Aggies and was a team captain. After being a part of a high-level SEC program for four years, he knows what has to be done to win big-time college football games. In addition, he will help the line dominate. SU’s offensive and defensive lines have had issues the last few years so having a star defensive end will help.

Zeed Haynes is another guy who’s experience will help the Orange a ton. Haynes may not have as much experience as Diggs, as just a redshirt freshman. He did play in four games last year for Georgia though. Just like Diggs, the experience of being inside of a top-tier SEC will help him and the Orange a ton. Syracuse needed help at wide receiver this season and Haynes proved that he can be the guy that the Orange can rely on. Kyle McCord had one of the best receiving rooms in the country last season at Ohio State and needs his teammate’s help for the ‘Cuse to have success.
