In the secondary, sophomore cornerback Steve Gregory is the present and the future. Gregory had a breakout freshman year, compiling 56 tackles, seventh on the Orange.
He also led the Big East with 21 pass break-ups and his 1.91 pass defended average was fourth in the NCAA.
Redshirt freshmen Terrell Lemon, ranked No. 44 among all cornerbacks by Rivals.com, is penciled in at the other cornerback position. But he will have junior Modibo Sidibe and sophomore Thomas Whitfield to compete with.
More on the secondary, including the safties, can be found in this month's issue of The Juice.
