Hubshman Impresses SU

Jerry Hubshman is an up and coming recruit from Dunmore, Pa., that has always played on the defensive line for his high school team, but more and more college coaches say they like him on the offensive side of the ball and Syracuse told him the same thing at camp on Saturday.

Jerry Hubshman, a 6-foot-4, 265-pound lineman from Dunmore High School is a player that could play defensive tackle, defensive end or on the interior offensive line at the next level and this weekend he impressed Syracuse enough to hear the words "scholarship worthy" out of the coaches' mouths.

"I went up to Syracuse for camp this weekend and it went pretty well," Hubshman said. "As soon as I walked in the offensive line coach walked up to me and he told me he thought I'd be in the second wave of offers that would go out and thought I was right on the line for the first wave of offers, so that's a good thing."

Considering Hubshman doesn't even play offensive line in high school, that is a very good thing actually. Syracuse isn't the first school to say this though as other schools have been recruiting him on the offensive line.

"I was actually with the defensive linemen in drills and I did really well in the one-on-ones getting to the quarterback every time," Hubshman stated. "We worked on our hand and hip movement a lot and spent time on technique stuff which is always great to do."

"I liked the coaches a lot and thought the defensive line coach was absolutely excellent. He was down in the trenches with us showing how to do things and I really liked his style of doing things. I really only talked to two coaches, but they just seemed like upfront guys and I really like that in coaches."

Hubshman hopes to hear from Syracuse so he can actually get up on campus as this camp was held at SUNY-Maritime College.
