Name: Macky MacPherson
Hometown: Syracuse, NY
High School: CBA
2012 Stats: Mac started every game, just as he had the year before. He was named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District Team and the middle of an O-line that protected one of Syracuse's most potent offenses in school history.
2013 Projections: Mac is now the leader of the offensive line, and dare I say, the offense. He'll have a first-year starter at QB behind him and a couple first-year starters on a transitional offensive line. They'll look to the three-year starter to lead the way.
How'd He Het Here?: He's Macky MacPherson, grandson of legendary Syracuse coach Dick MacPherson. He was practically destined to be here at birth.
Scout/Rivals Said: Two stars across the board. Now he's repping the school at Media Day, so, good call, Rivals.
Money Quote: "Deep in my heart, I knew I wanted to go to Syracuse. Syracuse has pretty much been my whole life. I was a ball boy when Coach Paul Pasqualoni was here. I got to see everything and how it worked. I fell in love with the place."
Tweets of Wonder:
Finally done with ACC media day. Definitely tired from all those interviews, but had a great time. Told 'em what #CuseNation is all about.— Macky MacPherson (@MackyMacPherson) July 21, 2013
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: His full name is Richard Astralaga MacPherson, which is all at-once worse and better than Macky.
