The Syracuse football received some good news on Friday regarding top defensive back Antwan Cordy.
Cordy, who started the first two games of the 2016 season before suffering a season-ending arm injury, was granted a medical redshirt by the NCAA.
As a result, Cordy now has two years of eligibility remaining.
Cordy took to Twitter to share the news.
Cordy set a school record for defensive backs with 12 tackles for a loss in 2015 when he started every game for the Orange.
If he is able to fully recover from the arm injury and return to his top form, the Syracuse defensive backfield will have a quality leader and talent patrolling the field.
Syracuse opens its 2017 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 2 by hosting Central Connecticut State at the Carrier Dome.
