It’s time to start preparing for the 2024 Syracuse Orange football season. We’re going through the roster to take a closer look at each Syracuse player as we get to know many new faces to usher in the Fran Brown era.

Next comes…

Surname: David Omoparioll

Position: Linebackers

Year: Redshirt freshman

Height: 1.90m

Weight: 232 pounds

Hometown: Baltimore (Maryland)

High School/Previous College: Woodlawn High School

Statistics for 2023: N/A (did not appear in any games, redshirt for the entire year of 2023)

Forecasts for 2024: Omopariola’s background as an all-around athlete (including being one of the best high school wrestlers in Maryland for a time) means he has a lot of interesting traits. It will be interesting to see if he can utilize those under new defensive coordinator Elijah Robinson. While Syracuse has two veteran linebackers expected to start, as well as several other potential options ready to go right away, perhaps he can show some signs early in the schedule and sneak into the lineup by the end of the year.

How did he get here?: Omopariola officially signed with the Orange in December 2022. Chose to play for Syracuse despite an offer from Temple.

What do the recruitment sites say?: Consensus three-star on ESPN, Rivals, 247Sports and On3

Interesting nugget of interest: Outside of football and wrestling, Omopariola was also a Maryland 3A regional qualifier in the shot put and discus. Athletically, he’s no joke when he says he can do it all.
