Senior WR Jamal Custis (6-5/228)

Custis is Syracuse’s leading receiver with 826 yards and six touchdown catches. He’s posted two 100-yard games this season, including a career-best 168 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener. In 39 career games for the Orange, Custis has 59 receptions for 968 yards and eight scores.
