Name: Ed Hendrix
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: (Redshirt) Sophomore
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
High School: H.D. Woodson
2019 stats: Unfortunately missed all of last season with an injury.
2020 projections: With luck, we finally get to see Hendrix on the field for the Syracuse Orange. Back in March, he was listed as a second-string outside receiver behind Cameron Jordan. If he’s healthy, he may very well be able to claim the starting spot too (or at the very least, be a significant contributor).
How’d he get here?: Ed was in demand, with offers from the likes of Boston College, Michigan State, Louisville, Pitt, NC State, Wisconsin and others. Not a bad list.
What’d recruiting sites say?: ESPN said four stars, while everyone else said three. We know which one we’re trusting.
Money quote: Bummer of a quote from Dino Babers after Hendrix’s most recent injury last year.
“We’re still waiting. We’re getting medical opinions on it. … We’ve got to see. Right now he’s just not right and we’re hoping and wishing the best for him.”

Tweets of wonder: In case you were curious about how Ed eats crab, well, here you go.
What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Dino has daughters, so it seems like he had to — whether he wanted to or not — watch 1998’s “The Parent Trap” with Lindsay Lohan. We bring this up because Elaine Hendrix plays Meredith Blake in said film.
Interesting nugget o’interest: H.D. Woodson has graduated quite a few interesting alums, and one of those is Byron Leftwich. As you know, he was a star quarterback at Marshall, then the Jacksonville Jaguars before a host of other NFL teams. He won a Super Bowl with the Steelers, and floated around for a bit after then went into coaching. Since his playing days, he’s worked his way up to the Buccaneers’ OC.
Let’s get a look at ya: High school highlights, as you’d expect (these, courtesy of national signing day video clips for SU).
