Lemon enjoying productive season

Gambrils (MD) Arundel wide receiver Alec Lemon decided to end his recruitment in the middle of August when he gave a verbal to Syracuse University. CuseConfidential recently caught up with Lemon to see how his season is going as well as what he thinks about the Orange football program.

Lemon, 6-foot-2, 185 pounds had a great season a year ago and this year he is picking up right where he left off.

"Right now we are 5-1 and number two in our county.," Lemon stated. "The season is going pretty good right now. Everything is going good," Lemon said. "I have about 45 catches about 500 plus yards and 10 receiving touchdowns."

Right now Lemon's current team is having a fine season, but his future team is not having the same luck.

"I know we are going through some trouble right now and we are trying to get back on the winning track. I have been talking to the coaches and they feel good and they said the team is practicing well and they are trying to get back on that winning track."

Next season Lemon will be helping out the Orange and he is ready for the challenge. The two star prospect is going to have his mind focused on helping improve the team as well as winning.

"I am just trying to go up there and help the team get back on a winning track and start my career off early with hopefully sometime as a freshman. I guess just make big plays in big games and lead us to a Big East championship."

Most players would be a bit uneasy about the coaching situation at Syracuse, but Lemon understands the business and hopes to get some answers on a future trip to see the Orange.

"I have not really asked my coaches about that [coaching situation]. I am hearing some stuff and when I go up there for a visit I am going to ask them more questions about the coaching positions and whats is going to happen."

If a change is made will Lemon look for another school?

"No, not at all."

The future Orange receiver also sees a coaching change as somewhat of a positive.

"I think that it is good everybody getting a chance to start and everybody getting to know each other. I guess just start on a clean slate and start everything over and getting on a winning track. Forget about the last couple of seasons."
