Name: Keenan Hale
Position: Wide receiver
Year: Redshirt sophomore
Hometown: Conyers, GA
High School: The McCallie School
2012 Stats: Hale didn't play last season.
2013 Projections: Unfortunately more of the same since he's out for the year with a
Torn ACL Lower Body Injury.
How'd He Get Here?:Arkansas and Vanderbilt showed interest, and there are reports schools like Tennessee and even LSU had Hale on their radar. In the end, Hale picked SU shortly after an official visit. Hale said Syracuse was, 'a good fit' for him football-wise, and he also liked that the school offered a pharmacy program.
What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Two stars all around.
Money Quote: "The week I went was the first weekend they’d had snow, and they got six inches," he said. "It isn’t like the same weather here. I really enjoyed it. I slipped a few times on the ice, and I know I’ll need to make sure I have some boots when I go back."

Tweets of Wonder: Haven't seen him on Twitter but I think his Dad might be.
What Does Shafer Think: Must be thinking Hale is putting in some hardnosed rehab right now.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: There's a Keenan Hale Facebook Fan Page that hasn't been updated since 2011, if that's your thing.
Let Me Get A Good Look Atcha: Here's Keenan and another student reading stats about Instagram, for some reason.
