The Syracuse Orange football team is bolstering the offensive line again, with the addition of transfer offensive lineman Willie Tyler from the Texas Longhorns. A bit of a snakebit position lately for the Orange, the addition of Tyler, as well as junior college transfer Jakob Bradford look to add a bit of stability to a position that has been thinned out by injury and attrition in recent history.
Tyler is a 6-foot-7, 335 lb. lineman, originally hailing from Racine, Wisc. Out of high school, he enrolled in Garden City Community College, before transferring to Iowa Western Community College.
